A simple but incredibly effective tool that can be used to erase spots, scratches and blemishes from photos. In fact it can be used like a ’paint brush’ for the magic erase feature, so you can erase even quite large features from your photo with amazingly seamless results.
It’s a pretty common requirement to want to work on just one part of your photo (or indeed vector image) - for example brightening a selected area of a photo, or cropping a specific shape out of a photo or vector image.
With the new mask and region tools it couldn’t be simpler. With the region painter tool you can draw a selection region to apply effects to (such as you brightness change, or crop) or you can use the mask painter tool to protect an area from being altered.

A really quick, easy and effective way of cutting complex objects out of photos, so you can place them on alternative backgrounds. We've had some fun combining the healing and background erase tools in demo 1 and demo 2.
See some examples.
Where a font has more than the usual bold and italic versions, the full font family is now displayed.
Instead of creating multiple text areas manually and connecting them up, Pro X9 introduces a direct, easier way to create multi-column flowing text areas. With a Text Area selected, right click to display a Columns menu option, or click the icon on the right end of the Text Tool InfoBar , and the Columns dialog is displayed.
This allows you to convert a single text area into multiple linked ones. Or, if there are already multiple linked columns in a set then you can adjust the column count.
With the text cursor in the text, a new Insert right click menu is available, with a selection of page number styles.
The same right click Insert menu provides an option to insert a column or page break. Inserting a column break will move the following text to the start of the next column, inserting a page break will move the following text to the start of the following page.
Pro X9 can now act like a word processor so that when text flows off the bottom of one page (or out of a text area) it can automatically create a new page (a copy of the previous layout) and flow text into this new page.
