Please, make optional placement of quickmenu: how it works now and always centered. When menu appears always in one place, it’s easier to remember exact screen position of elements and tap it faster. Especially now when there are more buttons and it less size.


When I tap eraser and open brush panel, I see the same brush as it was in paint mode, but eraser is different. If you change eraser there and tap paint icon, you see this eraser in brushes panel, but actually paint brush didn’t change.


If you gonna fix this, please make also automatically turning off erase blending mode if new color was color-picking from canvas. This will seriously fasten my workflow.


Suggestions, Ideas, Bugs / Docked panels behavior
on: October 27, 2020, 03:59:36 PM
We have crosses on each panel which closes panel. Tap on panel icons in top right corner also closes panel. It's good when panel is undocked. But quite often when some of panels are already opened and docked to screen, I accidentaly by habit tap on panel icon in top right corner and it closes. After that you need to open it and move it to dock it back.
Would be good to check: if panel is docked on screen, then do nothing  by icon tapping. So, we can close docked panels only with crosses on panels. This will improve user experience.


Is it possible to add in settings position of canvas when you pinch out with two fingers to make it fill 100% height? Now it centered by width. It was good when there were no on top panels. Now I use all panels on left side. Color panel is always on. Other panels just show on left. So, would be good to have settings to move pinched out canvas to right side (or to left side for left handed people, or still centered for people who get used to it).

Suggestions, Ideas, Bugs / Suggestion: one line menu

Would be good for app to change interface a bit in landscape version if user have ipad 12.9. It has lots of free space in top bar and all of menus can be in one line. It would save one line of free space because I have menu opened all the time, and just looks better.

When you open second document from gallery, color panel can’t be opened.

I moved completely from Procreate to Artstudio and missing two functions here:

1. You can preview your artworks in gallery in full screen mode by pinch two fingers without spending time to open file in edit mode. Would be good to have smth like that in Artstudio.

2. Time counter. Procreate counts seconds that your artwork is opened and store it in statistics section of file. So, you always know how much time you worked on each illustration without other instruments like calendars/timers/etc. This function is really good and helpful. I think it is not that hard to implement it in Artstudio, you can just add number of seconds past from last autosave when you save/autosave file. If it’s possible, that would be great.

1. If you put tool option in QuickMenu, it open this window only once while tool activated. If you go to another tool like brush -> selecton -> brush, you can then open tool option from quickmenu once again and only once.

I believe that wide possibilities of interface customization can be real competitive advantage of the app in compare with other art apps. All artists have there own preferences and work flows.

1. Reduce height of color panels:

Users mostly use their favorites modes like hsv for example, others can be removed under option button. This will make whole interface cleaner and makes more space for canvas.

2. Make left bars consistent with width:

Atm, sliders are 64px, undo/redo are 46 px, selection bar is 100 px. Sliders are a bit narrow, bars a bit too wide. 80px for both would be ideal, look consistent in terms of design and wouldn’t move you color/layers panel if you dock them to sliders and then use selection (it goes right to 36px atm).

3. All most used actions in one menu

Everybody speaks about design of Procreate this day. I think it’s good, because mostly all most used actions are in one place. In Artstudio some elements are scattered in different menus. Less menus leads to easier and faster navigation.

4. More space in layers panel

5. Thumb size round button

Can be turned on/off in settings and be placed in any area of screen. Can be used for different configurable actions:
1. Color picker button (hold button and tap pencil)
2. Eraser button (hold button to erase)
3. Switch brush and eraser by tap
4. Size changer (pull up/down to change brush size)
5. Opacity changer (pull up/down to change brush opacity)
6. Size/opacity changer (pull up/down and left/right to change brush size and opacity)

6. Sliders are optionally on top

This will help a lot to people who doesn’t use their left hand to operate with size/opacity.

7. Erase blending

I use it as a replacement for regular eraser. But it should be turn off automatically when you color pick.

8. Box and circle selections

I use only pencil mode. Lasso tool works only with pencil which is should be. But box and circle selections work with fingers also which leads to many accidental touches. It should work only with pencil too.

Hope I spent my time with use. Thanks.

Suggestions, Ideas, Bugs / Some UI suggestions for Beta
on: August 12, 2020, 08:07:18 AM
Some suggestions about UI tweaks. 2 pictures: before and after. Imho, that makes visual aesthetics better and gives us more space.

And again speaking about color picking by double tap on apple pencil 2 gen. Color picking in full screen mode works better. I think these color swatches showing on the left side slow the picker work. Also, color picking by double tap in current 2.4 version works significantly faster then in 3.0. In stable version there is no lags at all. In beta its nightmare to work with it, seriosly. Hope this app would be perfect one day. Best wishes.

Suggestions, Ideas, Bugs / Reference panel
on: October 07, 2019, 06:05:43 AM
Reference panel is usable now with last update. Here are some suggestions to make it perfect:
1. Change size of it by just moving borders. That’s much more convenient and flexible way then choosing small, medium and big (which is only horizontal). Vertical window is better sometimes.
2. Add buttons 1-5, or better 1-10. Under each button is own image. So, you can put all needed reference images and easily and fast switch between them.


Suggestions, Ideas, Bugs / [Bug] Activate paint tool
on: September 06, 2019, 07:51:33 PM
Activate paint tool after changing color settings. It works well when you change color by tap and hold pencil. But doesn’t work if you change color by double tap on pencil 2nd gen.

After double tap on Apple pencil 2 gen color picker tool is activated. Would be good to go back to brush tool automatically right after pencil moved from screen. Now, to go back to brush tool you need to double tap on pencil again. That is really too long and inconvenient - for simple thing you need to do two actions. Thanks.

Suggestions, Ideas, Bugs / Bottom bar under top menu
on: April 29, 2019, 12:43:14 PM
Is it possible to have settings moving bottom bar with size, opacity, etc. to the top of the screen. Like it is in Photoshop, under menu. It would be much more convenient to change brush settings then it is now. Thanks.
