Move and transform tool are two different tools used for different purposes so they should not be combined. If you you don’t need “move tool” you can simply remove it from your toolbar.

And to give “transform tool” an icon you can use “SF symbols” app on AppStore to browse for SF symbols, and most of them can be used to give different tools customized icons, you simply have to rename the tool to the according SF symbol name and it will change to that icon. For transform I can recommend “skew” symbol. I attached screenshot so you can see how it looks.

Hope that helps. :)

Same thing happened to me. But it doesn’t seem to happen every time

I know you can add “clear” to quick menu, but having it as gesture could free up a menu space for something else. I just suggested it because in Procreate they also added gestures for “clear layer”, so I thought having it in Artstudio Pro as gesture too, could be really nice! :)

And wow most things are fixed already , that was so fast!

Here are some continued bugs:
- snapping lines to perspective grid still not working
- autoshape rectangles still sometimes turn into ovals, but much better than before (maybe around 15% of time now)
- autoshape “perfect shape” with second finger works, but not that well right now. Especially when doing circles, it sometimes takes really long to recognize the second finger tap before it turns into perfect circle. And if you try to release the tap and go back and forth between your shape and perfect shape, it’s recognizes it really slow (especially if compared to the other drawing modes where switching back and forth with tapping is really fast(video attached for comparison)) And sometimes it “freezes” or lags completely and you can’t move the shape anymore with the pencil and just have to release. And other times it doesn’t recognize second finger tap at all (also with °90 lines and rectangles), so nothing happens at all. I attached a video showing what I mean with the circles too
- And if perspective grid line thickness and opacity can be implemented before official release it would amazing. But it’s already great that you can put these settings into toolbar and quick menu now!

And besides that everything seems to work fine right now. How long will the Beta continue before official release?

Edit: - perspective grid doesn’t always save the before set colors on new documents and instead resets to white color
-general suggestion for “grid“ would be that if “show grid” and “snap” are activated that all lines drawn on canvas snap to 90° lines (like in procreate), because right now it’s really hard to draw straight lines with grid. Also lines thickness and opacity setting would be great for grid and guides settings too, not just perspective grid)

After using Beta few more hours, I think new quick menu size is not a big deal after all, got used to it quickly. :) But I do like the way it is now, that it appears where-ever you tap on the screen, I don’t think it should be centered on middle, that should definitely be optional, if they ever decide to add something like that.

Also here’s a video showing that autoshape rectangles turn into ovals sometimes, couldn’t add more to the other one

I tried it now too and the first impression is awesome! I love that you can change the accent color, I’m really happy my suggestion was taken! :D it gives the whole app a new feel and all the small UI improvements also make the app look even better than before. I like the system integrated gallery too, it will make exporting, moving files etc much easier!

Anyway there are a few things I’ve noticed while using it so far.

Bugs and possible changes:
- snapping lines to perspective grid doesn’t work
- “cursor shape” shows up 2 times in settings preferences>interface and the top one isn’t clickable (screenshot is attached)
- autoshape circle and ovals don’t have expected size, the circles and ovals always “snap” way smaller than what was drawn (video attached) in the video to demonstrate i made a rectangle and inside it a circle touching the edges, so you would expect the circle to be roughly that size but instead it’s much smaller and inside the rectangle
- autoshape should NOT snap into perfect shape, unless you press down with second finger
- sometimes (~40% of time) when making a rectangle with autoshape, it switches into an oval instead, even if I made really clear edges
- all the other things here that were already mention about autoshape
- quick menu size is too big now (for small hands like mine) So it would be good to have an option to choose the size yourself
- deleting a color swatch via long pressing is not working (for some reason this opens the App gallery?)
- I think “gutter” setting from guide layout should be set to 0 by default, instead of 10
-crash when trying to play timelapse recording

Suggested features to add:
- Add option to “clear layer” in preferences > gestures. So for example you could set 3 finger swipe or tap to clear layer
- Already mentioned that one but gonna say again, I think being able to add perspective grid and guide settings to shortcut menu and toolbar would be really useful and also the option to change line thickness and opacity of perspective grid
- I think it would make sense that while you’re in “guide settings” you can add guidelines and move and delete the guidelines. So you don’t have to exit this setting and use “ show ruler” to add and “move tool” to remove or move a guide.

And auto hide 3 dots and home indicator is great but I think the time it takes to “hide” should be less, if that is something you can change.
And also it gets triggered every time you use “single tap” even on the middle of the the screen (to which I have set quick menu). So it keeps constantly showing up anyway and you would have to wait after every tap for it to disappear again. So if there’s an option for it to disappear, even if you keep drawing directly after tapping and don’t have to wait, or if the time for it to disappear could be set really really short, that would solve it I think. Otherwise it would still be on screen all the time, since I think its unrealistic that you wait so long after every “single tap”. (Also included a video with random scribbles to show that the 3dots and indicator won’t disappear if you continue drawing right after single tapping)

That’s all so far, hope it helps! :)
Thank you so much for the great development of this app!

Edit: tested on M1 iPad Pro 12.9 (512GB) and also attached screenshot of the document settings :)

I don’t use the Beta so I don’t really know how it is. But all of this sounds exciting! :D

Also agree on everything that was said about the auto shapes.

When using Autoshape does it still work to make perfect circle, rectangle and 90° lines when tapping with second finger?

+1 for optional Split View, if it’s possible :)

I think it’s only annoying if you were used to how it was before. But even then, after a few days you get used to it too. So I don’t think it’s a big issue after all and for now probably best solution the way it is currently. :)

But true, most people probably use Artstudio Pro in full screen most of the time. If I need second window I usually use the “floating” one that you can use in full screen apps too. But maybe some people still need split screen, I don’t know 🤷‍♀️ It’s hard to please everyone

 So I actually asked via email and got a response from the developer. I guess that makes it all clear now. Thought I’d post it here too, in case someone ever has the same question again :D

‘“Remember Resize Interpoation” - save “Interpolation” value used in in Image > Resize Image, even after you restart the app. If off - Interpolation will be set to “LInear” after app relaunch.
“Remember Transform Interpolation” - remember Interpolation used in Edit > Transform

Maximum Velocity - it is used when using brushes with “Velocity” dynamics, for example Pens > Velocipen. It says how fast you have to move your Pencil/Finger to achieve the max dynamics effect.
In Velocipen - how fast you have to paint to achieve the minimum stroke size.”

Oh I see, thanks for this explanation! But I tried just now with transform and resize tool and it didn't make difference. Like it remembered the interpolation that I used before even with the setting turned off? (Tried on current and new documents)

And I'm relieved I'm not the only one confused by the velocity setting lol

Help / What do these preference settings mean?
on: October 08, 2021, 01:49:18 PM

I just went through the preferences of Artstudio Pro again and I’m abit confused/ don’t understand what some of the options do or mean.

First one is Artstudio>Preferences>Tools>Remember resize/transform interpolation

What does that mean and how does it make a difference wether this options are turned on or off? And is it better to keep them on or off?

And the other one is Artstudio>Preferences>Apple Pencil>Maximum velocity

I tried it on maximum (100) and minimum (1). But I don’t understand what this setting does and I couldn’t feel a difference.

Thanks in advance :)

Usually if you can already see the banding on your screen, it will be even more obvious when printing

Color banding is generally a thing that happens with digitalart, mostly when painting large gradients without texture especially with the round brush or airbrush.

An easy way to fix it is to duplicate the layer or to select affected area and „add layer via copy“. Then add surface blur to it until most of the banding dissapears. Then you can add a mask, paint with black, to remove it from areas you don't want the blur, and then if needed, add a new layer to paint back in any details that might have been lost.

Another/additional way already mentioned is to add a new layer on top, fill with 50% grey, set to overlay, and add noise until banding mostly dissapears, then add mask again to remove from unwanted areas, and adjust layer opacity if needed.

Next way is to add any grey textured layer on top, set to overlay and adjust opacity, erase, adjust or add mask as needed.

Final and most time consuming way is to paint over affected area with smaller or more texture brushes.

And to generally prevent it from happening again, you can either avoid painting gradients with very large brushes, and paint in with smaller strokes instead, or use more textured brushes.

Hope that helps :)
