Hi Al,

After you press the PLAY button in the Auto-paint module, the second time bar should appear to set the pant over time duration.

If it is not appearing for you, restart the software and see if it comes back.

Grant

hi grant, it doesnt come back on restart when i press play that was the problem, was this a known bug at some stage fixed with the extension service pack, the reason i ask is we're out of service contract at the moment and im unable to down load.
thanks al

This has something that has always been intermittent but I could never nail down what caused it. Restarting the software cleared it up but it's always come back.

I am not sure what to suggest because the paint module has not changed much is a long time.
