Hi Daniel,

thanks alot for the application. I experimented a bit with the source and
that the Newton behaves the way I want it to behave if only the viewFlags
vVisible, vSingleUnit, vClickable and vStrokesAllowed are active.
This app would probably need a save button and in-depth knowledge of soups
to do what I want.

Actually she's using the plain ol' notepad with recognition set to "sketch
to make sure nothing she draws changes. It's just this stupid selection
that confuses her. Losing the scrub-out behavior wouldn't matter as she
aware of it yet anyway ;-)
I wanted to use the notepad because that seems the easiest way to get the
paintings on my desktop.

Thanks again
