Here Are some good practices to keep in mind while you're drawing. First before you start make sure you're in full screen mode, On my computer it's f11 but it might be different on yours. When you've selected a time and clicked the begin button, hover to the bottom of the screen, and the control panel will display. Once your ready and comfortable click the play button and have fun. Once you clicked play it begins and you can pause or stop the session at any time. And Lastly remember to have some fun!
