What's new in version 9.2.2
Thank you for using ibis Paint!
The summary of this update is as follows.

- Since many users unintentionally turn on palm rejection when the stylus of choice is Apple Pencil, making it impossible to draw with a finger, we have changed palm rejection to OFF for updates from previous versions.

[Fixed bugs and Problems]
- Fixed a bug that when palm rejection is ON, drawing with the stylus may disappear when the stylus is released from the screen.
- Fixed a bug that Brush, Smudge, Blur, etc. may not play back when playing an artwork with palm rejection on.
- Fixed a bug that when palm rejection is ON and the artwork is played back at constant speed (x1), the selection range is not changed by Lasso tool.

[New Feature in ver.9.2.1]
- Added palm rejection function for Apple Pencil.

[New Features in ver.9.2.0]
- Added the Cloud Storage feature.
- Added the Canvas Paper feature.
- Added "Levels Adjustment" to the "Adjust Color" filter category.
- Added "Replace Color" to the "Adjust Color" filter category.
- Added "Bevel (Outer)" to the "Style" filter category.
- Added "Color Range" to the Selection tool.
- Added a feature to pick up a color from the current layer (not from the canvas) by the Eyedropper tool.
- Added the "Target" segment to the Transformation tool, which allows you to move and transform the entire canvas.
- Added sliders to move, zoom, and rotate in the Translate Scale command of the Transformation tool.
- Added a function to skip the blue balloon tutorial that is displayed in the canvas screen.

[Improvements in ver.9.2.0]
- When the Transformation tool is invoked on a invisible current layer and if the current layer does not become displayed even after itself and its clipping reference layer are turned to be visible, the Transformation tool didn't launch in the older version, but now it launches and shows a message explaining why it is not displayed.
- When a Text, Frame, or Shape layer is the current layer, the tool used to check if it should be rasterized before launching the Transform tool, but now it checks afterwards.
- In the case of the filters "Lens Blur" and "Sheer (Cross, Square, Hex)," the maximum number of directions that can be set has been doubled.
- Adjusted the background color to make it easier to see the text and buttons in the web font addition window when the window color is black.
- Changed the "Tone Curve" filter to display the graph at the top.
- Changed "Bevel" to "Bevel (Inner)" in the "Style" filter category.
