If you’re having trouble receiving trial activation or license transfer emails, the first thing you should do is check your spam folder. You may also need to add “email@example.com” to any safe-sender lists in your email service or network security software. Then try logging into Toolbag or Hexels once again with your Marmoset ID to resend your new trial or license transfer messages.
Is there a trial version?marmoalex2020-07-22T18:56:02-05:00
Your Marmoset ID is the email address you used when originally purchasing Marmoset Hexels (it will be listed on your email confirmation). If you’re installing the trial, you will create your Marmoset ID by simply entering your email address into the prompt when starting the software.
Hexels 2 and Hexels 3 licenses are assigned to the email address you specified at the time of purchase: your Marmoset ID. If you wish to move your license from one machine to another, simply install the appropriate version of Hexels on the new computer and log into the software using your Marmoset ID.
You will be asked for your email address – enter it, and follow the authorization link that arrives in your inbox. Once this is done, the new computer will be authorized. You may transfer your license as often as you like, even between OS X and Windows.
“Cannot Connect To License Server”marmoalex2020-07-22T18:58:49-05:00
If you receive this message when opening the software, check that you have the most recent version installed. The latest installers are always available directly from the Hexels page.
Note: Make sure to install to the default location on your system drive. If not installed to the default location, please re-install and try running the software again.

Still no luck? Send us an email making sure to specify your current OS and the firewall/antivirus software you are running.

Does Hexels Support High DPI Displays?marmoalex2020-07-22T19:00:25-05:00
Yes! Hexels supports tablets, and you can choose between several different pressure modes. To enable pressure sensitivity, first draw on the canvas with your stylus (Hexels requires initial tablet input to display the pressure options), and then choose the desired pressure mode from the Pen Pressure drop-down in the brush options.
