Windows 7: MS Paint

MS Paint

I let my daughters play with paint on my computer and havenīt had a problem until now they wonīt leave me alone about fixing it. The problem is that when you try to paint, what you are painting or the pen mark is not under the cursor but below and to the right of the cursor about 4 in. I have been trying to find help in fixing this to no avail, is there anybody that can help me with this.

So to clarify, I try to draw a line with the pencil and it doesnīt originate under the cursor but aways from the cursor how do you get the mark to originate from under the cursor again.

Hi erikthegreat68 and welcomt to SF.
I never seen that behavior before.
But I've seen posts where people resolved the issue by reinstalling the ATI Graphics drivers.

Tux paint is awesome, Jacee
My Junior used to love it when he was 3, 4. (Now he is 9 and "too old" by his own words )
I'm just not sure if that would resolve the "off center" issue with the mouse cursor

@pusspa : I like your new icon
you have a NVidea but the issue described here is mostly observed with ATI cards (for whatever reasons)

Win 7 paint
Hello, I probably have a simple problem. I'm trying to draw an arrow onto a photograph using the arrow "shape" and then fill it in so that it is solid using the bucket tool. It doesn't work. I've tried saving as a bitmap but that didn't work either. Any help would be appreciated Thanks. JB
