All the control knobs in the toolbar can be changed and adjusted while you paint, by using the number keys (1, 2, 3...) on your keyboard.

The Mac’s full screen mode is supported.
You can remove the toolbar if you place the pointer on it and scroll toward the screen/window edge, or if you press the Tab key on your keyboard.
To get it back, scroll inward from near the edge.
You can also move the toolbar to the other side by scrolling it in that direction, or by pressing Shift-Tab.

The unique Seamless Pattern Editing mode lets you display the picture as tiles next to each other.
You’re free to paint anywhere on these tiles, so you can easily create seamless patterns for use as website or desktop backgrounds, in print, or for textures in 3d modelling.
Toggle this feature on/off in “Work in Progress”, in the menu that comes up when you click the “…” button.

On a trackpad, you can pinch to zoom, and use the rotation gesture to rotate the picture.
Scroll over the picture to pan.
On the keyboard, use the Arrow keys (pan) and - + buttons (zoom).
Use the Space key or the smart zoom gesture to reset zoom, pan, and rotation. Again to go back.

Everything from selecting a layer to adding new ones can be done in the Layer Control.
To open the Layer Control, click the button that has a mountain/house/flower (symbolizing the selected layer).
Flower = topmost layer
House = any layer in-between
Mountain = bottom-most layer

Please note that the number of layers is restricted to two unless you upgrade to Pro.
If you upgrade to Pro, you will also be able to change the color of the paper beneath the layer(s), by pressing “Paper Color”.

There’s a scrollable palette, where you can pick colors, as well as store new ones.
To edit any palette section, right-click on a color in it, and a menu will appear.

Adjacent to the palette are three control knobs that adjust the hue, saturation, and brightness of the current color.
Note that you can adjust the color while you paint!

The Current Color button is the large colored rectangle next to the knobs.
Clicking this button brings up a menu with some options, including “Eyedropper” (Pro feature).
