When version 2018 of PaintShop Pro was developed, in 2017, one of the goals of Corel was to make the program and its interface easier for the users. Newcomers would have a simpler workspace with fewer tools so they would not be overwhelmed. Did that work?

Even newcomers might be a bit lost if they try to follow some tutorials that use commands or tools that they can't seem to find.

PaintShop Pro has a feature called "Picture tubes", which are elements placed on a project with a click of the mouse. On the other hand, "tubes" have been seen as an element that has been extracted and has no more background, whether that was done in PaintShop Pro or any other graphics program. This has led to common confusions in the use of those elements and their format. Let's look into this more deeply.
