    The easiest way is to make a larger pattern. For instance, if your pattern is 16 pixels by 16 pixels, make a new one that is 32 pixels by 32 pixels, and it will fill four times as fast.

    i'm still getting the same issue, the progress bar saying "paint bucket" proceededs quickly to the "t" in paint then pauses for 10-15 seconds then proceededs quickly to finish and then the filling takes place.

    even when i made a new pattern that was 4 times the size of my pervious pattern same thing happens/

    any other suggestions?

    Got me. Chris or one of the other techies might have an idea. Do you have lots of disk space and/or ram? Which OS are you under. (Not that I can solve it, but they will probably want to know these anyway).

    well after about an hour of this " $%^& computer... $%^ piece of #$%#....
    i'm gonna #$#$^*"

    i finally determined that my file size was 130MB for a JPEG and that i
    should bash my head into the desk.. i quickly scaled down the 70"X29"
    600dpi image to 22"X6" 300dpi and my pattern filling issues were instantly
    solved.

    i should have remembered Ockham's Razor right form the getgo: all things
    being equal, the simplist answer tends to be the correct one.

    thanks for helping though

    I'm sure someone from Adobe will jump in to help. They will be sure to want to get you committed to PS so you buy a copy after the demo ends.

    Here is a HUGE warning. Don't mess, or allow any software to mess, with the system clock on the computer. Even changing it a few seconds will cause the demo to assume you are trying to beat a few more days out of it, and cause it to stop operating.
