I am using the 15 day trial version at the moment. I do not know if perhaps the free version cannot load ones from the commercial version? I was planning on just buying Mischief and using the full version but maybe that is a mistake if the files cannot be viewed by people with some sort of free viewer :/ Maybe we can get some clarification from them?

According to mischief these are the differences

So are you using a custom color swatch or an extended palette?

I was unable to open "blackboard.art" with the 15-day trial(full) version of Mischief, I received the same error (unable to create a canvas for the .art file).

I was able to download and open sample .art files, however, so the problem seems limited to Casey's .art file.

Very strange! I wonder what the problem is?

I opened a support ticket with them but I haven't gotten a response yet. I will update this thread when I do.

I have switched to using the full (paid) version, and I have made a new .art file to start us off. Please let me know if you can read this one... maybe it's just files with the trial version that don't work? Let's hope so!

I wasn't sure where to recommend this, but have you tried MyPaint. It works quite similarly, at the basic level, as Mischief; and if you don't have any problems with dll deps, then it should work quite nicely.

We have tried many paint programs so I don't see the harm in trying another :) I'll take a look at MyPaint when I get a chance!

The Mischief support people got back to me, they were able to reproduce the issue on their end. There is a new build of Mischief-Free now (2.0.5) with which I am able to open Casey's blackboard.art file and view it.

I can confirm that the last version opens both blackboard.art files fine! So keep drawing the beautiful art!

You have mad bug reporting skillz!! Any chance you can get them to fix the ALT-TAB-leaves-the-cursor-in-eyedropper mode bug, too?
