                Lack of pen mode continues to be the Achilles’ Heel of this otherwise very capable software. Users continue to clamor for it and the community manager is becoming downright defensive: “I’m not saying it definitely isn’t possible or won’t happen in the future – but currently, it’s close enough to impossible *for ArtRage* that we haven’t yet added it.”

                Although the program claims to support gestures, I wasn’t able to get them to work on a Surface Pro 4 running Windows 10 Anniversary Update.

                This is a shame because this is a very fun, capable application and despite being designed for desktop, it features one of the cleanest, touch friendliest interfaces available.
