so I can’t seemed to get rid of my paint bucket problem. I want to try reinstalling animate pro. I am worried that since I am reinstalling there will be some conflict with my activation. Am I being paranoid or is there something I must do so I don’t have any problems?

I don’t know if you have to do this if you are re-installing to the same system or not, but I know that you do if you are installing on to a different system (I found out the hard way); You have to de-activate your license before uninstalling; you do this through the license manager, which can be found at your start menu programs folders. You do the de-activation online, as well as the reactivation upon reinstall. Follow the instructions thoroughly and you shouldn’t have any problems.
