*Test DEMO and read the Limitations List before buying!!*

Some people are unable to save a .ppd project and .png spritesheet into the app root folder or subfolders. To avoid this just save the project to another folder.

Exporting a long animation to a .png might cause a crash for GPUs with low VRAM.
