I am having some problems with using SAI regarding opening up SAI or Start-SAI. I'm using Windows 7 Home Premium. And these problems never happened to me when I used Windows XP.
When I open up SAI normally (already ran as admin once). I noticed that my swatches are all gone and so are my custom tools (the left side of the image). The files in the "toolnrm" or the "tooink" folder have the custom tools there still (hasn't changed). All other functions on SAI work fine and if I make a new tool (in a slot that doesn't have my custom tool that magically disappeared), it stays there and saves. I don't want to find out if making a new tool over a slot where my custom tool is located would overwrite it.
When I open up SAI by right clicking it and running as administrator again (having that User Account Control popup appear every single time I do so), my swatches and tools are back again (the right side of the image). But, I can't click and drag image files like a png right into the SAI window to open it instantly and have to do it the longer/manual way which is to go to File and Open and then find the file.
I tried uninstalling it and reinstalling both the official SAI installer and the fan-made version but it still acts like that.
I also tried moving the folder somewhere else, it fixes the problem but it makes me have to change all the shortcuts (desktop and start menu) and that when I open a sai file, it asks where the sai.exe program is. I would use this solution but I really want to keep my SAI folder in the Program Files folder.*
* - Though if I uninstall it and reinstall it where the folder is again, the problems appears there too until I move it to another location where I haven't installed it.
Any help? Thanks in Advance!
Oh one more thing, this really isn't a problem/glitch but more of a question but, how do you get the file icons to appear like this:
For me, it's just those blank file icons with the SAI icon shunk down in the middle of it instead of that.
