Post  weashell on Wed 14 Sep 2016, 9:02 pm

Greetings! Thanks for that amazing software. Im experimenting and trying to learn what is going on. My problem is, im using wacom intuos4. When i use eraser of pencil(back of pencil), software detecting that im gonna use erase function but i cant get back to brush function after i use front side of pencil again. Not only with my pencil, even if i click to "brush" button after this, its still not working so now all i can do is erase Very Happy I wonder if im missing anything..

Thank you!

Thanks for your message. I just tested with intuos 3 and intuos pro (wacom driver version 6.3.15-3), and returning from the eraser tip worked for me (except I realized the tilting is horizontally flipped. Will fix it soon). I have a Surface Pro 4 just arrived yesterday and I found that I can't get back to painting mode after flipping the pen to use the eraser. But now it's working fine (not sure if there's because of some updates, the machine has been auto-installing updates).

As for the on-screen icons, well it's a dilemma actually. I want to have the brush to have an eraser mode in which we keep using the same brush tip for organic shapes instead of switching to just a circle like some other apps do. So, it's 'eraser mode' instead of 'eraser tool'. I know people are used to 'eraser tool' from so many other apps, but I really want to keep using that brush tip that gives you vastly different footprints according to how you hold the brush.

And those icons are for switching brush and toggling eraser mode.

BTW, it's quicker to use hotkey 'E' to toggle eraser, if you have a keyboard.

I value your feedback and let's see how we can shape Expresii in the future.
