    @Ryan Steele, yeah, Adobe's unwillingness to follow industry standards and instead offering half hearted temporary workarounds is baffling. Even if you use that paint workaround, who's to say it doesn't break when there is a windows update, I bet it does. This is a bug in Adobe's software which would take 30 seconds for someone with access and understanding to fix but we seem to be stuck with people who don't have access or understanding as gatekeepers to those who do.
