Troubleshooting01

If there seems to be a problem, check the troubleshooting guide below before contacting the User Support Center.

Symptom Cause Countermeasure

Manga Studio does not start.

The correct operating environment may not be in

place.

In order for Manga Studio to work properly, it

is necessary that the OS version, CPU, memory

capacity and the likes of the PC being used satisfy

the operating environment.

Check the specifications of the PC in use, and if the

operating environment is not satisfied, consider

adding parts or taking such other actions.

During the installation of the application, the

administrator or system administrator may not have

logged on...

When installing the application, log in as

administrator or system administrator.

Problems may arise in Manga Studio itself or the

setup due to some system issues.

Double-click the Manga Studio icon while holding

down the [Shift] key to do an initialization startup.When the [Start up and clear the default settings?]

dialog is displayed, clicking the [Yes] button displays

the [Initialization on Startup] dialog, and then, click

the [OK] button with the [Others] check box turned

on.

Manga Studio freezes immediately.

Reinstalling Manga Studio does not fix it...

The correct operating environment may not be in

place.

Check the specifications of the PC in use, and if the

operating environment is not satisfied, consider

adding parts or taking such other actions.

Software, other than those provided as standard in

the OS, may include those that are incompatible with

Manga Studio.

Revert the PC being used to the settings during

shipping, and check whether the issue arises.

Each time Manga Studio is aborted, the remaining

hard disk capacity becomes small.

Manga Studio saves the in-process data. Normally,

this data is automatically deleted upon exit but is

not deleted if normal exit is not possible, and it takes

up hard disk space.

[From the [File] menu, check [Preferences] →

[Memory] → [Virtual Memory Folder Location].

If the file "SWP*.tmp" remains in the system's

temporary folder (e.g. C: \) of the selected drive on

the disk used by virtual memory, manually delete this

file. Note: The file deletion should only be done after

ending Manga Studio.

The story data cannot be stored onto disk.Sufficient free space is not maintained on the hard

disk.

Maintain at least 500 MB of free space on the hard

disk.

Image file cannot be imported.There are image file formats that cannot be imported

by Manga Studio.

Use an image editing software to change the format

of the image file to one that can be imported by

Manga studio.

Even if [Import]→ [TWAIN...] is selected from the

[File] menu, it is not possible to read from scanner.

[TWAIN...] cannot be selected without opening

[Page] of the [Edit] window.

Select [New...] → [Page...] from the [File] menu,

then select [TWAIN...] after opening [Page] tab from

the [Edit] window..

The scanner's power supply may be off, or it is not

properly connected.

Check whether the scanner is properly connected.

Depending on the type of scanner used, it may not

be recognized by the PC if the scanner's power is not

turned on before switching on the PC.

Cannot draw to page.

The layer is not selected correctly.Select the layer for drawing.

Depending on the layer, drawing may be disallowed.

[White] or [Transparent] drawing color is not

displayed.

Check the drawing color. If [White] drawing is to be

checked, select [Show Transparent Areas].

The layer's opacity setting is low.

Double-click the layer icon of the [Layers] palette,

and display the [Layers] tab of the [Properties]

palette. (In the case of [Simple View], click the

[Advanced View] button to expand the palette)

Set the [Opacity] to 100%.

The selection is on the screen.

Drawing outside the selection is not possible.Clear the selection.

area, they are not reflected on screen.

Do the drawing after the screen is zoomed in byusing the [Zoom] tool.

The [Tool Settings] menu on the [Tool Options]

palette of the drawing tool cannot be selected.

The initialization file may not have been properly

down the [Shift] key to do an initialization startup.

When the [Start up and clear the default settings?]

dialog is displayed, clicking the [Yes] button displays

the [Initialization on Startup] dialog, and then, click

the [OK] button with the [Tools] check box turned on.

When tablet is used, the drawing spot is shifted from

that of the mouse cursor.

Depending on the tablet settings, the drawing tool

for pen pressure sensing may cause the drawing to

be shifted.

Check the current [Coordinates Detection Mode]

at the control panels tablet settings. If it is [Mouse

Mode] (Relative Coordinates), change it to [Pen

Mode] (Absolute Coordinates).

When the resolution is changed while working, the

tablet's drawing point may not be correctly obtained.

After uninstalling the driver of the tablet in use

and then restarting the PC, switch the display's

resolution to that of Manga Studio's working

resolution and then reinstall the tablet driver.

When the tablet is used, the cursor cannot be

moved until the edge of screen.The settings of [Mapping] may not be correct.

Adjust the settings of [Mapping] in accordance withthe user manual that comes with the tablet. Check

whether the tablet settings of Windows' [Control

Panel] are recognized correctly.

The selection does not go well by using the

([Rectangle Selection], [Ellipse Selection], [Lasso

Selection], [Polygon Selection]) selection tools.

It is possible that other than [Normal Selection] is

selected at the [Shrink] tab settings of the [Tool

Options] palette.

Select [Tool Options] from the [Window] menu,

and let the settings at the [Shrink] tab be [Normal

Selection].

Symptom Cause Countermeasure

Moire occurs at printing and tone areas.

The pasting of tones overlaps and moire also occurs

on screen?

When tones are shifted and pasted with overlap, the

patterns combine and moire occurs.

Moire that occurs at data stage is reflected as it is to

printouts.

Check whether the pasting method for tones fits

with production design.

For correction of tone overlap, select the [Move

Layer] tool and select [Move Tone] at the [Tone

Operations] of the [Tool Options] palette. Moire

can be avoided by shifting the tone position while

checking the angle, lines, and density.

Moire may occur due to the effects of the automatic

adjustment function and printer proprietary setup.

After checking the printer's user manual, redo the

printer setup.

If the [Tone Layer] is rasterized, there is a high

probability of moire occurrence due to loss of vector

format.

Rasterized tone cannot go back to original [Tone

Layer].

Tones should be kept as they are without

rasterization as far as possible.

Faintly expressed areas underwent changes on

printing due to [Gaussian Blur].

Expression that employs gray density is drawn

by [Black and White (2-bit)]. It is expressed by an

assembly of small points of 1 dot on the monitor,

but it may not be recognized by printers with low-

resolution output.

Select the layer, then select [Change Layer Type] from

the [Layers] menu and a dialog is displayed.

Select [Type]: [Raster Layer]/Color Model]: [Gray

(8-bit)]/ [Color Reduction Method]: [Convert to Tone].Select [Blur] or [Blur More] from the [Filter] menu

and execute.

A red Panel Ruler is displayed to text .The text uses a font that is not available on the PC in

use, and the use of an alternative font is indicated.

Check the font used in [Properties] palette of 

corresponding text layer from the [Layers] palette,

then check the text font shown in red Panel Ruler,

and either install on the computer in use or change

the corresponding text font to that of a font already

installed on the PC in use.

Troubleshooting information can also be found at the location below.
