    I just tried the new artbox lite 2 for cc 2014 with a Macbook pro. It is great!

    I noticed two minor bugs that you might not be aware of.

    When clicking on a tool in the AD artbox lite panel, if the wrong tool is selected in the tool panel it creates an error message. It doesn’t select the tool automatically.

    For exemple, if I have the Move tool active and I click on a brush in the AD panel, an error message pops-up. I could send you screen captures if you’d like.

    Also, when a tool in the AD artbox panel is active, the keyboard is deactivated so I cannot use any shortcuts.

    I am sending this to you because I think you have a wonderful product. Keep working on this stuff, they are the best brushes I’ve seen at this time. Have a great day,

      Nevermind, I read your notice on AD Artbox Help. Tool preset option was ticked. Works perfectly!

      Good day,

      Hi Max,

      thanks for the feedback.
      Both issues are already listed in the Help / Manual page (
      For the first one:

      ERROR: The command “Select” is not currently available”
      Usually this happens when we have activated the option “Current tool only” in the bottom of the Tool Presets window (Window > Tool Presets)

      And about the Keyboard loosing focus, that’s a known bug with the last versions of Photoshop, not an issue with the panel itself, unfortunately we must to wait for a fix coming from Adobe.
      I’ll be updating the panel once it’s solved, for sure!
      Regards, Alex.

    Hi Alex,
    I downloaded the panel, but in the zip, there is no patterns or tool presets, just the txt and the zxp, so the panel not working in cc 2014.
    Can you help? thanks,

    • Dukal says:

      when you install the panel (the ZXP file) using the Adobe Extension Manager CC, the panel itself installs all the required files,
      so if it’s properly installed when you launch the panel inside Photoshop, the required files must to be there.
      Hope that helps.

      • Varga Sándor says:

        I installed it with the Extension manager to cc 2014, the panel shown, but the presets, patterns not in the list, and when i clicked one of the buttons in the panel, nothing happens… Even the rotate button not working… I’m on a mac, mavericks 10.9.2.

      • Varga Sándor says:

        I had to manually unzip the zxp to find the tools and the presets, but it’s working now. Strange.
        These tools are fantastic, i bought another three of your package too! Thank you!
        Your work is very good too, I watch this space for years! 🙂 I love ‘Martial Life’! 🙂

  3. Care says:

    unfortunately I never got an e-mail after the check-out. I would really like to try it out, especially after I bought some other tools/brushes of your collection. 🙂


    • Dukal says:

      Hello Care,
      did you check the Spam folder? Usually some shop emails ends at the spam folder,
      rarely the system does not send the email (but it could happen).
      If you’re trying to test this free Lite version, please, try again. It must work!
      If doesn’t work, try with other email.

    photoshop cc updated itself to 2015 and this plugin stopped working. Will you update it to cc2015?

    • Dukal says:

      Ibrahim, all my products have been updated 10 days ago and are working fine with CC2015.

      • ibrahim celik says:

        hello. thanks. I try to download artbox lite and it doesn’t send me the link. It just sends a link to log in but it says that I’m already logged in and doesn’t show me the link. What to do?

        • Dukal says:

          Using Hotmail sometimes just doesn’t work or ends inside the Spam folder but you can allways access to your download clicking the User Icon and then choosing the ‘Downloads’ tab. Hope it helps. Regards.

    Your download link to get ad-artbox-lite doesn’t work. How can we resolve this issue and allow download.

  6. Eliana Iñiguez says:

    Lo instalé en Photoshop CS6 en Macbook air y no funciona. No estoy segura de si soporta o no Macbook Air o solo Pro. Me podrías confirmar? Saludos y mil gracias!

    • Dukal says:

      Hola Eliana. Si tu Photoshop CS6 funciona bien, el panel debería funcionar perfectamente. ¿Lo instalaste con el Adobe Extension Manager CS6? ¿Te figura como instalado?
