Additional Comments

Use the penPattern property to change the pattern used with the pencil, line, and curve paint tools, and for the borders of shapes.

Value:

The penPattern is a pattern specifier.

A patternNumber is a built-in pattern number between 1 and 164. (These patterns correspond to Revolution's built-in patterns 136 to 300.)

An imageID is the ID of an image to use for a pattern. Revolution looks for the specified image first in the current stack, then in other open stacks.

By default, the penPattern is empty.

Comments:

Pattern images can be color or black-and-white.

Cross-platform note: To be used as a pattern on Mac OS systems, an image must be 128x128 pixels or less, and both its height and width must be a power of 2. To be used on Windows and Unix systems, height and width must be divisible by 8. To be used as a fully cross-platform pattern, both an image's dimensions should be one of 8, 16, 32, 64, or 128.

If the penColor has been set since the last time the penPattern was set, the color is used instead of the pattern specified by penPattern. In other words, the last-set property takes priority.
