    One of the coolest features of Segment PRO is the ability to paint segments on a Painted Segment Bowl. This is the first automated process for painting segments based on a rectangular grid built from the number of rows times the number of segments. Of special interest is the Diamond Stamp Pad that will make painting designs such as Petal patterns fast and easy.

    I have been through all the tutorials once (not enough for me I am a slow learner). I installed and spent about an hour playing around. I must say I am very impressed. I am a retired programmer so I can appreciate the effort put into this project. Congratulations.

    This is great for painting the bowl Lloyd, but often I will use the paint map for assembling the rings on top of one another - I don't see any way to print the paint map in your program. Any way for me to do that?

    Johnrheyd, You need to do a print screen. Then open up Microsoft Paint and paste it into paint. Then you can print it

    I could programmatically do a PtrScr but my print options are very limited. If you do the print screen, you can paste into any graphics program where you can have an extensive number of print options so this is one time where not doing something is a way to give you a lot more options.
