  1. Hello Matthias. I am not a coder and seriously struggle to work with the canvas tool in Armory/Blender as a result. I am trying to use the application to design interactive 3d infographics and have sufficient knowledge of Blender to achieve the visual elements but the UI is proving to be beyond my capacity for the time being. Can nodes be used directly to create working functions in the canvas?

    I've tested on Win 7 64 bits (Armory 0.5 and 0.6) and Linux Mint 64 bit (with Armory 0.5 and 0.6), neither of them this resource is working. When I click "Edit Canvas" nothing appears on Linux, and a message "update to .Net 4.5" appears on windows.
    I tried to install .Net 4.5 but it says that need 3.5 Gb of my internet connection it means several days of download :-(
    This brings us some issues:
    -Why Krom needs .Net?
    -Why Krom doesnt use Python? (which is multiplatform)
    -Why Krom does not shown any error message on Linux? (which would be useful to solve the problem)
