Pencil : new Chchwy branch !

There is a great news on the forums :

Dear all,

I’m a pencil lover, and I start a new pencil fork last month : https://bitbucket.org/chchwy/pencil2d

Currently I’m trying to simplified the program structure, the old code base is not well-organized, I believe it stop the growth of pencil, code is too complicated to add new features.

I will be appreciated if somebody could give me some feedback (features, bugs, etc..)

Cheers

Matthew

    Glad “Pencil” is returning to life, thanks chchwy!

    I like the new improvements, the shortcuts were so necessary, thank you for implementing them. After you improved and simplified the code, a new bug appeared (0.5.2b version) -> the edit view seems to catch events from outside its boundrect. -> The mouse works fine but when I press the tablet pen over any tool button, the events are sent to the edit view instead of the buttons and they can’t be pushed.

    It seems like a relative vs absolute coordinates of mouse/tablet event problem, wish I could help you to debug that but it’s the first time I use repositories so I’m a bit slow now.

    Hope it helps!

    Regards!

    I am also glad that Pencil is coming back to life. THANKS !

    I downloaded the Mac build Pencil-dev-0.5.3b-mac.zip and am running it on Mac OS 10.7.5 , working in Pencil with a Cintiq tablet. I’m find that sometimes if I draw several strokes quickly that the app hangs (spinning beachball) for 10 – 30 seconds. Not sure if anyone else using it on Mac is reporting this hanging issue , but just wanted to let you know .
