Hello I recently got the trial version of the program named above and I am having a but of trouble with it. I cant figure out simply how to select my sprite and move it around and freely rotate it. Is this even a feature there is no select tool in my tool bar and this is frustrating me to no end.

TY in advance

I figure it out by mashing a bunch of buttons so nvm

Have you ever thought about reading the manual? Press F1 and all that? ProMotion is a bit different from the current standard when it comes to art applications because it is built on a way older standard, namely Deluxe Paint. Don't bash things before you get to know if they can or can't actually do what you want.

You hate a lot of things in general, no?

A pink bow perhaps? I find that usually does the trick for me.

No massive images is nice during slow connection weeks!

I've finally gotten around to playing Dark Souls, today. Picked it up on the Steam sale earlier this week for the cheap. So far, I'm completely enamored with it!

Are you playing with a controller or keyboard/mouse? I really wanted to play it but I don't have a controller.  :(

I'm using my wired 360-controller that I bought 5-6 years ago. However, it seems there are some who use keyboard/mouse exclusively. There's even a mod/fix for making the mouse-controlled camera work more smoothly, which suggests a demand. There might be a few hurdles in the way of making it work alright, but it's definitely doable.
