[Read me first] For Users Updating from an Older Version

1) We have changed the file format from Version 1.5.4 onwards for ease of use

・The standard file format has been changed to CLIP STUDIO FORMAT (extension: clip).
Compared to existing .lip file format, the file size can be reduced by up to 50%, reducing the amount of time it takes to reload and save your work.
・Once a page management file (extension: cmc) or Clip Studio Paint file (extension: lip) has been edited and saved in Version 1.5.4 or later you will not be able to open the file in Win Ver.1.4.1/Mac Ver.1.4.4 and earlier.
If you are using the group collaboration feature, please make sure that all members are using the same version of Clip Studio Paint.
* Win Ver.1.4.1/Mac Ver.1.4.4 and previous versions will remain installed even after updating to Ver.1.5.4.

Launching older versions of Clip Studio Paint
[Windows systems]
Execute (CLIPStudioPaint.exe] from the following location.
C:\Program Files\CELSYS\CLIP STUDIO EN\Clip Studio Paint
*If you have changed the installation folder, execute [CLIPStudioPaint.exe] in the modified installation folder.

[Mac systems]
Go to [Applications] > [CLIP STUDIO EN], and click [Clip Studio Paint].

2) Updating from versions prior to Win Ver. 1.4.1/Mac Ver. 1.4.4

・The preferences you have configured, as well as materials added in versions prior to Win Ver. 1.4.1/Mac Ver.1.4.4 or earlier, can be transferred to Version 1.5.4 or later.
・Materials saved in Version 1.5.4 or later cannot be opened in Win Ver.1.4.1/Mac Ver.1.4.4 or earlier.
・The Clip Studio Paint shortcut icon will be changed once you have installed Version 1.5.4 or later.
To use a version of Clip Studio Paint older than Win Ver.1.4.1/Mac Ver.1.4.4, you will need to start CLIP STUDIO manually.

3) Users uninstalling versions prior to Ver.1.4.1 (Windows only)

If you uninstall a version of the software prior to Ver.1.4.1 in Windows, the Clip Studio Paint shortcut icons are deleted from the desktop and [Start] menu. Re-install Clip Studio Paint. This behavior does not occur when Manga Studio 5 is uninstalled.

4) Manga Studio 5 users can download the latest version of Clip Studio Paint for free.

The English version of Clip Studio Paint, which was sold as a boxed product under the name of Manga Studio 5 in North America and Europe by our sales distributor Smith Micro Software, now has the product name Clip Studio Paint (the software is identical).
Manga Studio 5 users can use the latest version of Clip Studio Paint by updating their software.
The first time you start Clip Studio Paint, enter your serial number of Manga Studio 5 and register your license.
