Interesting tool but I'm having a bit of an issue with my drawing tablet - there's a pretty major delay in recognizing a mark, leaving a straight line at the start of each one. This isn't a problem in other drawing programs or my settings, so... any idea?
Electric Zine Maker (a work in progress, be gentle, hug it often)

Best thing on the internet right now. Encourages completely open creativity. I only wish I could make 16-page zines! If this was a drag queen it would be Yvie Oddly x Crystal Methyd x Love Connie.
I'm having problems with using a Huion graphic tablet with this. I have to wiggle the pen around first while pressed onto the tablet before I can draw something. Is there a way to make it work correctly?
this is best zine maker
download for very use!!!
would really like to try this. is it possible to get a linux build?
Hey if anyone else needs a workaround to make this comments section more readable, try the following:
1. Open your browser dev tools.
In Firefox, Shift-F7 will open the Style Editor, or open the following menus: Tools --> Web Developer --> Style Editor.
In Chrome, Shift + Ctrl + J (or Option + ⌘ + J on macOS) opens the developer console.
2. Turn off the following styles: <inline style sheet #1>, <inline style sheet #2>. In Firefox you click the little eye icon next to each style, I don't know what you do in Chrome.
I hope this helps, obviously providing instructions to make a comments section more readable within a comment is to some extent self-defeating.
I love the fish ARG!
this is the best drawing tool I have ever used. Everyone should use this it's so perfect
cute and good program, but I'm getting a "There are no more files" error when I try to save with it; help?
(also, the swaying comment section is... a bit much. hard to read and use yknow. and yeah, i'd appreciate a less eye-hurty version for people that want to make a zine but would rather not deal with the aesthetic.)
Are you on Windows or Mac? What system are you running this in? This will help me troubleshoot. Thank you.
oh boy what did i fall into, this is a really good program, the only downside is there is no 16 page templates, or more/less, if you were to release one more update, could that be in it please?
Lots of cool things here, but I kind of wish there were some layout options. For instance, have a fullpage spread mode for facing pages. And some output options wouldn't hurt either. The eight-up page is nice, but I would also like to have some duplex options for doing a little stapled thing. Do love that it works for both A4 and letter size though!
absolutely love the features and versatility of this thing. i hope some more minimal and less eyestrainy options come soon
agreed!!! this seems like a great tool, but I can't actually use it because looking at the interface gives me a headache. it's really extremely inaccessible from a disability standpoint (as is this itch page, cute as it is)
I love LOVE this program!! I'm a bit into an art block and this program really helps me! It's a really fun way to do cool stuff without too much pressure!
My absolute favorite program of 2019. It's creative, it's fun, it's wacky, it's practical. It's brilliant. Thank you.
hey!! just wanted to say that i absolutely love this program!! im so into making zines now lmao its amazing!! thank you sm and i will use this program liek,,,, daily <3
Hey i love love love this art tool! its so simple and pretty and functional!
Wow this is amazing
Tonight I couldn't sleep so I decided thats a good time to try making some art. I'd heard of this through twitter and a couple of streams where people tried it out and figured i'd give it a go.
Not actually knowing what a Zine was I did a little search to get an idea and then I was off on an unexpected 2hr journey.
The amount of tools within this "art toy" is really amazing, and so nice to use. It keeps it user friendly whilst giving some very cool options for editing your images.
I played around and created my first ever zine, with some weird images which I didnt even realize I could make!
I like making glitch and strange/horror themed art which I managed to make with ease here.
The randomization on the distortion tools is great for making yourself something unique and a bit creepy!
At the end I was given pretty awesome instructions of how to print and fold the thing so I now have my own little Zine which I will keep on my desk!
Will use again in the future for sure, and looking forward to any updates.
Amazing web :D
I don't even know Linux front-end development but tell me how I can help you make this thing support Linux without Wine and I'll do what it takes to help you!!1
I want to +1 this, but can't click the little arrow because it's swaying around too much. Please accept this comment in lieu of an upwards arrow click.
My kid and her BFF spent 90 minutes putting together a tiny zine about themselves as cats. They are so thrilled to have made their own magazine, and the interface and UI-experience reminded me of Print Workshop and the sheer amount of cut and paste love I used to pour into making tiny clipart magazines. It was just the rgiht level of calm creative fun for them to get busy - and to do something without being able to go too detailed.
Lol Gen Z doesnt know what zines are. Awesome tool and the greatest itch.io description page ever
Looks like a trippy version of Mario paint
No idea what a Zine even is, but im intrested
Wtf how did you customize it?
How did you customize the itchio page ?
Hey, I have the same question!
You can ask itch if you need custom css. If they comply with what you are trying to do they can implement the .css script on the page.
This looks so cool!!
I love you!!!!!!!!!!!!
It is SO GOOD!
Made like 3 zines with this already! I think they came out great. I think the thing that was a paint point was choosing fonts. I have a lot of fonts on my computer and scrolling through that menu each time I wanted to write was bad, I ended up just using the font at the top of the list. Other than that it's <3
very stoked to try this out < 3 thanks a lot ~
Thank you for this! :)
I think this tool can help me with stress
I'm excited to make Zines! Thank you for sharing this beta version. I'm working on a Mac, and I think I have a couple of graphical issues with things overlapping. Screenshots for fullscreen and windowed below
thank you for these! i'm going to work off these to fix the resolution issues... probably won't be fixed soon (like the update will take longer), but definitely something i'm aware of.
This might be my go to for making mini zines now! Im really loving how i can do things so easily digitally and not fumble around with scribus or the mess of cut n paste.
I LOVE THIS!! the only problem is that when interacting with the "better halftones" option it crashes. still, this is a super cool concept and will defo be making my next zine wit this!!!!!! <3
