    You sometimes have to click on the screen to get it working, but that's just me.
    Use the arrow keys to control the movement of the Etch, and it's pretty straight forward from that point.

    I can see that you have no strong opinions about apple.



    I noticed that you cant click for some reason when using OSX.

    nevermind i figured out how to use it, thanks rb. ;)

    and i think it would be awsome if there was a fullscreen or zoom in noob/ button down the bottum so you could get more detail into your drawings. thorts? (sorry if there already is, im not very observent. :p )

    Sorry but I found that funny that, that was your first question :D

    But if its nothing wrong on our end, then click in the area that you want to start, then hit the arrow keys.

    we also need an arase tool. like you could use the backspace key on the keyboard to erase the line you just drew?

    and can you change where you start a new line? like when your making a art with letters or writing in it and you dont want them linked you could click the red dot and drag it to where you want to start a new line?

    We have discussed at length weather or not we should have an erase tool. We decided that this is an etch e sketch and an eraser would make it something else.

    same response for the spacing/ new line

    It's an Etch A Sketch. There is no erasing or broken lines. You're silly, man.

    We could at least undo lines?

    Can you undo lines on a real Etchasketch?
     
  18. naturehatesme

    No but can you speedup/slow down a real etch a sketch? No. Exactly

    The slowdown/speed up factor is when you watch someones drawing, get an idea on how they did it, not while you're creating it.
