Star's compendium of Sai Tips and Tricks [updated]EDIT: Feel free to post these to your art-blog or art tumblr!Star's compendium of Sai Tips and Tricks [updated]3 months ago in Personal More Like This
I will update this with more tricks as we go on! I've been using SAI for several years and continue to find new shortcuts. Also it bugs me when artists don't use shortcuts, so the time they spend searching for the right button is time wasted and not improving B(
Hold CTRL and click to jump to layer:
- Hold CTRL and drag to move whatever's on that layer!
- Hold CTRL and click and you will automatically jump to that layer! (Some versions of SAI uses ctrl+ shift, try it out!)

How do snipe guards work? / What are snipe guards?Hi, I'm just writing this journal so I can make it a clickable link for people new to auctioning in my future adopts! :icondignitylaughplz:How do snipe guards work? / What are snipe guards?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
