Then what was the point of having the option to blend with current and below layers for? There’s even a blend all layers option in there. I’ve always used current layer anyway but still was wondering how the blend current and below layer was supposed to work because i’ve never seen this done in an art piece. i’ve always used layers for masking…never for smudging colors as the only one that does this successfully is Clipstudio Paint…and that’s a high bar to reach.

I used the same parameters and can confirm…it doesn’t blend at all. Going back to Clipstudio Paint until this is fixed.

Clip Studio Paint already has this feature…unlimited references. The only thing I wish they did was allow you to scroll through them like in carousel mode like the iPhone.

At some point there’s going to come a time when users of these apps will have to sit down and decide which subscription to pay for. And for me, it’s Clipstudio Paint. I was happy to use Artstudio Pro for a while but when I compare the feature sets between these two it’s no comparison. Clipstudio Paint is way ahead in feature set and abilities. It has a superior layout and better color palette support that Artstudio Pro simply doesn’t have. For this reason alone my choice has been made for me. So if I’m forced between push and shove…I’m sticking with Clipstudio Paint. I’m deleting Artstudio Pro soon. Now if Procreate does the same thing I’ll have to sit down once again and make the same cold hard decision which app to stick to if I’m forced to pay annual fees for something I purchased. Most important in that decision will be file support…and Artstudio Pro simply doesn’t have that much file support that can be converted to. Not to mention brush library support is way behind Procreate.

C’mon Lucky Clan. I tried changing the default location where my documents can be stored in order to save my files. In this case I wanted to use Dropbox so I set the location in Settings. But when I tried to create a new document I get an error saying “Cannot import file”. And this was to create a NEW document so I’m being DENIED creating ANY new documents if the storage option is anything OTHER than iCloud.

This needs an unscheduled updated bug fix ASAP otherwise how can anybody create ANY document of ANY dimension unless they have document storage creation set ONLY to the iCloud?!

Edit: I’m using the LATEST possible iteration as of August 20th 2022. The exact error in the dialog box says “The operation couldn’t be completed. NSFileProviderError - Domain Error 1”

Why hasn’t Lucky Clan replied to this thread?

A search bar would be a fantastic solution to this issue of finding features that are hard to locate. The only fly in the ointment here is the issue of typing the terms themselves. The designers would need to “tag’ the different features in a way making it possible to quickly locate whatever it is you need to find otherwise you might end up looking for something you think isn’t there…but it’s there but is named differently. So there is a naming convention that needs addressing if this solution is chosen.

I haven’t been on the forums in a while because i’ve had issues with my health and other concerns. But now I’ve come back to digital art creation because of a new concern…inflation eating away my ability to purchase watercolor tubes of paint and other price increases causing me to back away from physical art work. This is now becoming a serious problem and it’s forcing me to become more attuned to the problems in digital art design and one issue I’m seeing right now involves Artstudio Pro and that is the program is still too darn confusing to look for different tools to get things done. I’m forced to go back to Procreate because I can easily find the Liquify tool instantly when I need to do quick work on an object while drawing. Using this as a baseline example…I can’t for the life of me find the liquify tool instantly on Artstudio Pro to do the same job. I have to hunt it down on the numerous menu selections to figure out where this is. You guys need to overhaul the program to simplify where we can find the most basic tools and hide the confusing menus but still allow us to find those items by making it intuitive to find when we need it. Borodante mentions this issue constantly in his Youtube reviews of Artstudio Pro and these concerns are still valid and still need fixing.

Suggestions, Ideas, Bugs / Artstudio Pro widget?

Procreate has a widget so i can put it in the Smart Stack in iOS 15. Why can’t we do the same thing for Artstudio Pro?

Suggestions, Ideas, Bugs / Copy Procreate’s new Card feature

I got the Procreate 5.2 update today and I’m impressed by the new Card feature in the color palette. Which essentially allows you to see the colors in larger squares making it easier to see and tap on during painting. I’d like to see this feature in Artstudio Pro.

Do you mean both export and import?
