Not finished or working Features
-R button is not customizable, it is reserved for Debug
-keyboard menu is incomplete
-need to optimize font rendering in kb menu
-selector tools
-Layer drawing is still basic, more time is needed to add the advanced features of layer drawing (alpha blending handling is missing so although you're drawing below a layer with alpha it won't show up)
-needs basic menu for creating new images etc...

Known Bugs:
-There are some issues undoing the fill tool
-possibly a few others
How to use:

-copy Etch.nds to anywhere on card
-copy etch.ini to the same folder as Etch.nds
-ensure picture directory (as specified in etch.ini) exists
-ttf fonts go in directory as specified in etch.ini

Controls can be customized via etch.ini file
