I've been away from ArtRage for few years so I don't remember exactly how stencils used to work back in the ice (r)age. I have upgraded to AR3 now (that Kagi promotional action is working guys) and was playing with stencils:
1) open a stencil and paint over it as usual
2) hold the H key to flip the image for few seconds - stencil disappears
3) release the H key - the stencil is invisible but still working, i.e. it blocks the paint as before
is this a bug or a feature? if it's a bug, is it possible to turn it into a feature? 'cause not having the stencil visible is quite handy sometimes, I like it.
I'm running XP SP3 32bit
