yes, I use el capitan. Thanks for fixing it

The latest version of ASP, 2.1 has a nasty bug, which makes it crash almost every time I try to create a new document.

When it does not crash, I get a completely black background (instead of the white first layer, option "white plus transparant layer!). Whatever color I try to pick to change the color of the layer, it always remains black. Also any mark I try to make will always be black.

When I open an existing document I created with the previous version, everything works fine...

This is a very nasty bug, which makes ASP unusable at the moment. I hope you can fix this ASAP!

Thanks!  :)

Yes, I kind of overlooked that feature. However I think it is hard to control the effect, as it is applied after you make the selection. But still, good to be reminded of this option.

speaking only for me: both

I would love to see the abiility to have the stabilizer settings for the lasso selection tool. Clip studio has this feature, and it make creating smooth selections a lot easier.

I won‘t be using clip studio if i don‘t have to though, as ASP is so much easier to work with on the iPad, much better UI and much, much better performance. It is a joy to work with!

That would be quite nice, yes

Thanks for your reply.

I did indeed check the brushes out you marked with tilt, but the effect is not as organic as in the other apps I mentioned. The effect seems rather on/off, and not very gradual. I can set size to tilt, but I can find no other way to control the effect, for instance by a curve. If you check the notes pencil for instance, you can get a narrow line, a thicker line, and also a larger shading effect. So far I have not been able to replicate this effect in ASP. Perhaps I am overlooking some options? I basically would want a range from the normal mark of the "pencil crayon" (for example) to the tilted rage of the "shading tilt". I am not sure if this can be done right now?

Thanks for the reply

Today snapping seems to work as it should. Not sure why it was buggy yesterday. Would it be possible to implement it in pencil only mode too? I get problems with palm rejection in the other mode, where I get accidental triggering of features.

Thanks for your response:

for 2: I did not know this, and tried it now. It is nice that is there, but the one finger gestures (except long press) are triggered too easily so I often activate it when I don't want to. To have flawless palm-rejection I always use the pencil only mode. The good thing with the 3-finger gesture is, that you won't be triggering this accidentally, which is why I like it.

for 3: I am not sure if you understood me: what I mean is to have the color square which is currently in the bottom toolbar, and have it on the right color toolbar at the top. This will always be the current color.

for 4: I know what you mean with UI clutter. This is not an absolute must, but I have seen some nice implementations of it, which I like. But if it does not fit your vision, than so be it.

Some things i found out now: in the transform tool, you have to select multitouch in mode, this was not clear to me. It works now, as it should, although i prefer the non-multitouch version for precision.

As for snapping: i got it to work on selections, when using the rectangle and. Ircle mode, which is good.

As for using it with the brush tools: i got it to work once or twice when using the pen/finger mode, but most of the time it just freezes the line. It is hit and miss really and could not find any consistenency in the behaviour.

Perhaps having some of the ratio options that are in the rectangular and circular selection tool could be added to the context menu for brush?

One area where i think ASP is still lacking a bit, is tilt support for brushes. In other apps like proceate or infinite painter it is possible to create a nice pencil which tilts to create shading. Though it is possible in theory i cannot really get a result like the other apps mentioned, or apples own notes app. I would like to have more options or understanding how this could be done in ASP?

I have been using ASP for some time now, along with other art apps, like procreate, infinite painter, concepts, affinity etc. ASP is probably the closest to a complete art app for me, but somethings in other apps have a nicer implementation, which i think could improve ASP.

1. with the introduction of the full screen mode in the beta, i don‘t see much use for the painting mode. For my workflow i would either use the full ui, as i need selection and fill tools, and frequently go through the top menu for commands. When i want to concentrate on drawing only i would use the fullscreen mode, and switch back when i want to change tools or do other operations. The drawing mode offers not enough benefits to me to use it, it has too much UI for concentrated drawing, and too little for the rest. It would clean the UI too, if there would be only 2 modes. Perhaps a prefernces setting for the parts of the UI one wants to hide, like the one in the original AS, would be useful.

2. some more use of gestures could benefit the full screen mode. Infinite painter has the 3 finger swipe to the top or bottom to resize the brush, and left/right for opacity (or flow in ASP). This is quite elegant and works well.
A single finger swipe or swipe out gesture to expand or hide a palette could also be useful. Infinite painter has the minimal layers menu on the right, which can be expanding by swiping. I find this quite intuitive.

3. the color option would make more sense to me as it was in the original AS, at the top of the color bar, but not scrolling (like the favorite tools in the left tools bar)

4. i would like to see a permanent layers menu at the right, perhaps as a switch with the colors like the one you implemented in the latest beta between opacity/size sliders and colors. Expanding it could be done by swiping.

These are just some ideas. I think ASP already has great features, but a slightly cleaner and more logical UI would help improve even more.

Thanks for the work, i hope you can use my feedback!

Thanks for the new beta!

Unfortunatly, i can not get the multitouch features to work as described. I tried pen only mode, and pen and finger mode: in pen only mode nothing happens when i put a finger on the canvas. In pen and finger mode, the shape or line freezes when putting a finger on the canvas, but without snapping to an angle or ratio.

In the transform tool, gestures only move the canvas, but not the selection. Basically nothing happens, in neither drawing mode.  :-\

The new expand function does not seem to work. Whenever i set a pixel value other than zero, the fill tool does not do anything.

I like the color bar in drawing mode, the switch is quite ingenious and works well. What i find confusing in the drawing mode is the position of the brush and color editor. It would make more sense to me, when the brush editor window would pop up when clicking on the tool icon at the top. The color icon could perhaps be at the top of of the bar at the left (size and opacity) above the switcher and permanently visible. This would clean up the UI. The switch between pen only or pen/finger mode could be in preferences, as i don‘t believe you would switch between these modes frequently. What i miss is the „...more“ menu from the normal UI, which i use mostly for switching drawing mode or brush blend mode.

I have some more UI ideas, but i will post these in another thread.

About the loss of work because of saving a smaller copy: If you use iCoud you can browse versions of your document and return to a previous step. You could try this.
