Clear up confusion

CLIP STUDIO PAINT is created by CELSYS, and is distributed to other countries by Smith Micro. At first Smith Micro distributed it with the name of Manga Studio 5, as a successor to Manga Studio 4 (which was originally called Comic Studio 4 in Japan). But because CLIP STUDIO PAINT was not technically part of the Comic Studio series, Manga Studio 5 slowly changed it's name to CLIP STUDIO PAINT (either it was something they did on their own or was forced by CELSYS, we probably will never know).

They changed it so the digital version of Manga Studio 5 would be called CLIP STUDIO PAINT while the physical edition would still be Manga Studio 5 (which resulted in mass confusion to people who didn't know that CLIP STUDIO PAINT = Manga Studio 5). Then as of ver 1.5.0+, they changed it so all versions would be called CLIP STUDIO PAINT.
