Suggestions, Ideas, Bugs / Re: Lasso tool bug?
on: January 04, 2022, 06:31:09 PM
For me this isn't a problem but when moving around a selection with the lasso tool it's noticeably slightly slower than when doing it with the polygonal lasso tool. I'm using an ipad pro so maybe it's even slower on older generations of ipad? I don't know if this is what they mean.

Don't worry, there's no controversy here, I stated multiple times that I'm not arguing for the removal of this feature, I just don't think it should be the default.

My point wasn't at all "I don't use the line tool to crosshatch, so this shouldn't be implemented". It's that I don't think crosshatching
*with the line tool* is a significant enough technique to change the default way the line tool works, since that seemed to me the reason for this change. This was especially because I've never heard of people using it to cross hatch; freehanding is the only method I've ever seen- in digital work as well. If you say many other artists use the line tool, then I'll take your word for it.

Again, I like the feature, I also think it's an improvement and I'm glad we got live preview as well. I just think it should be toggleable since having to change brush dynamics just to use it the old way (and the way every other program does it) would be a pain. Photoshop does have a very accessible toggle like this for brush tool sensitivity, and that would be a good solution.

I didn't want to make a new thread for this, but in the new beta the line tool doesn't work directly after autoshape. You have to autoshape and then draw a line freehand for the line tool to work.

About the main topic of the thread, honestly I would like to make a case against this change, or at least have there be an option to turn it off. I think this change is very interesting and experimentative, which is definitely something I love the app doing.

However, I don't think having this as the default is a very good idea. The only reason I've read so far for this change would be for hatching, and I do think it improves the line tool's practicality for it, but is it enough to justify fundamentally changing the line mode as a whole? I'm not so sure.

Mattnava provided examples of traditional work using crosshatching, but I don't really understand what any of those drawings have to do with the line tool. In my opinion those examples would be a good case against this change, as they are done with a pen/pencil, which is the equivalent of freehand. To be frank, I don't think anyone should use the line tool for cross hatching. I don't crosshatch or use it in my work very much, but to me using only straight lines leads to a very rigid effect when using it to shade rounded form, as cross contour lines are rarely ever straight. ​I could see it being used for a stylized effect, or rendering flat objects, but I don't think this justifies changing the line tool fundamentally.  I think you would have a great deal of trouble finding an example of a drawing crosshatched using the line tool. 

So why not change it? Let me reiterate really quick that I'm not advocating for the removal this change, but rather having it as an option, and not the default. I don't think there's anything too fundamentally wrong with this addition, I think it's great as my philosophy is the more features the merrier.

The first reason is that to my knowledge every other software doesn't have this function, and use hard lines as the default. I know this isn't the best reason, but I think a feeling of familiarity when using a new app is essential.
The second reason is that if this is the only option, it removes the ability of creating those consistent hard lines without changing brush settings which is very inconvenient.

I hope it is understood that I don't mean anything personal, and don't really have any stake in this but I just figured I would give my two cents about this change. Thank you!

Thanks for all remarks, we will fix them after Christmas. I consider removing long press Pencil Eyedropper gesture. So it will work with finger only
Oh god, PLEASE DON'T, this is my main way of blending: painting, holding with the pencil to eyedrop a color, and then continuing to paint.
It's very fluid, and one of my favorite things about this app. This would be one of the worst possible changes.

The reason this isn't working is because you are in pencil only mode.
I think this is a bit of an issue, since I work pretty much exclusively in pencil only mode and would like to be able to use drag autoshape.
Maybe I'm missing a preference that allows this though?

I think Transform should be "grayed" when selection is not closed...
Well I explained my reasoning the best I could, but I respect your decision wholeheartedly. I'm at least grateful there's an option to turn off autoclose  :P

Yea, after multikple users requests i changed that behaviour - now when lasso is not rendered, it will be canceled when changing active tool or for example tapping Edit > Transform.

I'd like to add on to the selection point, it would be nice if the selection auto closed when pressing transform. Right now it forgets the lasso and just selects the entire layer. I swear this was already a thing, was it removed in the most recent update or did I get some random muscle memory out of nowhere?

I understand cancelling lasso upon switching tools, because there's a larger chance I changed my mind about the selection. But surely no one wanted that when pressing transform... that doesn't really make sense to me. When I press transform while having a selection open I'd expect it to autocomplete the selection and then transform, I don't see any reason why it should cancel the selection and then transform. If I changed my mind about the selection I almost definitely wouldn't be pressing transform. But oh well, it's a small thing, just convenient when quickly moving things around. I'll get used to it.

layer > copy layers :P

what... these are just larger swatches? naming them seems like the only functional part of it but this feature doesn't seem necessary

Hello, I know there's been a lot of suggestions lately, but I'd like to throw in the one that I feel more strongly about.
I'm sorry if there's an option for this that I'm not aware of.

Often times a problem I have in many software is when trying to fill in a space, there's a small little gaps or even pixels that don't allow for a fill, and it ends up filling the entire page. So I have to hunt for these gaps and fill them in manually, which can be a bit tedious and inconvenient for line art.
So I was hoping to request some kind of feature that solves this. Here's a picture that should make it more clear what I mean.

Thank you for reading, and your hard work!

I'm using newest version and still got bugged lasso. Smoothing works even when I disable it, if I draw square selection by pointing corners it will turn into circle.
weirdly enough the bug is only fixed when you enable smoothing
if you set your smoothing to something like 5 or so it should be completely gone
