Sorry. You can't ask a question while asking another question.You are the man! We ask a question and you've already thought it thru. Great software and getting better all the time. Since you were so good at answering that, will we be able to paint feature ring projects at some point?
If I were to answer your question, though, the answer might be that when I work on the new Bowl Engine I will add the hooks to be able to draw rings from a Painted Segment design. It is not likely that this will be done in April, though, as it is a big re-design. I'll see what progress I can make, though.
