Is it possible to draw on Toonio from my phone?
Well, it's possible, but the editor was not designed for mobile devices.
For Chrome, there is a feature called "Request desktop site" available in Menu. Click on it, and the editor window will be much bigger, almost even usable!
The Fill tool doesn't work!
Everything works, you just need to use it correctly. Due to some technical limitations, we cannot make the fill tool the way it works in graphic editors. Therefore, the tool with the bucket icon draws a figure filled with colour from the inside. So just try to draw some shape, for example a circle!
Ok, but how do I change the fill colour?
Select a colour on the palette and right-click on it. The same trick works if you use the colour picker tool!
How do I use the distortion tool?
Click anywhere on the canvas and then drag the cursor! The further you move, the more distortion is applied.
Please note that you can't undo this effect.
The hand tool doesn't work. I can't even click on it!
The only purpose of this tool is to move the upscaled canvas. If you haven't used the zoom tool, then the hand tool won't work either.
How do I save my cartoon on my PC?
Click on the lower right button among the tools (A floppy disk is drawn on it!). Generating GIF files may take some time.
This cartoon editor is a part of my website. If you liked the editor, be sure to visit this site!
If you drew something cool in the editor, feel free to post it on Newgrounds or Twitter with the tag #toonio.
