Matador Problem

Unread postby mr_ripley » Mon Apr 21, 2003 3:29 am

I dunno if any of you guys are familiar with Matador but hopefully somebody in here will be able to help me.

My problem is that whenever I click on any part of the interface other than the main paint window the screen fails to update when I paint or otherwise edit the current image. However, if I minimize (iconify) Matador to the desktop then maxamize it I find that the screen has updated, displaying any edits which I have made.

I must aplogize for the crappy explanation but the problem is a bit hard to describe in words.

Many thanks for any help.

I've found that if another application overlays the Matador paint window that it will fail to refresh until you minimize/maximize the program, but after doing that it clears up the problem.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Neko : I've noticed this too. However, this problem occurs even when I don't overlay the window with another application. I was thinking that perhaps a background application could be 'stealing' focus from Matador somehow. I dunno though.
