I just installed Stencil a few days ago, and I just got down to working on a game I'd like to make today. But when I make a new animation, it gives me the choice to either import a frame or use Pencyl to draw a frame. I decided to use Pencyl, but when I tried to download it, a message popped up saying "Unexpected Problem - Ouch, this should not have happened! Please report this error on the forum."

I was okay with that, and at first I didn't report it, because I have an art program called 'Firealpaca' and I thought I could import frames from there. But it didn't let me do that, (I don't think it's a glitch, it probably just wasn't the right file type or something) but now I have a problem, I have no way of creating a frame. Without actors, I can't create a game, can I?

If you go to File > Preferences > Editors you can set your image editor to another program.  It must be a raster program that can edit PNGs and not a vector program.

For your Pencyl error, could you generate and attach logs?

I'm an idiot, what does that mean?
