Ok. Just a question. 
I have noticed that kde's users have stopped donating because the counter is "blocked" at 713 euros.
Is this true? In other words, it is not due to a lack of updating in the counter for some "strange" paypal reasons?
If everything works as expected in the money counter, It would be a pleasure, for me, to add the 
remaining 287 euros.
This in order  to reach the 4000 euros expected for getting Lukas work an extra month:-)

Well. They are definitely more than enough :-) The only "problem" is that I can not find the way to use them in Krita :-(
I suppose because:
1. I use a very old version of Krita. That is, 1.6.3 version, which is shipped as default with Ubuntu Karmic (Gnome desktop).
Maybe the arrows are available on Krita 2.x series?
2. I have looked for them in the Krita's old manual ( but I didn't find any reference to such arrows in it.
3. I have tried to "google" a bit to no avail (I didn't find any information for using arrows with Krita on Google).
4. I have thought the arrows were not available in the latest Krita development release because 
they were not "visible" in the many screen-shots, concerning its GUI, you published in the Krita'swebpage :-)

To recap, I'll try to get the latest version of Krita in order to try and use the arrows :-)

Best regards and keep up your wonderful work on Krita ;-)
