Ignore this. Copy merged does exactly what I want. I just haven't explored it before.

And, yes, there is a room for the third slider on the bottom...

These are new things. I was talking about less than perfect existing features. It'd make sense to separate them. For me there are two:

1. Textured brush unpredictable behavior. Size behavior laregly depends on the canvas size. Because one practically always work in non-100% magnification, same brush "feels" different. This is a major problem of working on a small screen: you always work on a part of it (see my request for a quick "in and out" button). The only solution for this would be the ability to set brush size in %% of the screen rather than in px. Texture starts working only when brush size is comparable together pattern size. As the result, I always try and undo few times before it gets right. When it does, I save it to favs.

2. Because of that, favs have to have more sophisticated management. There is no way one can scroll through hundreds of them. They need groups and categories. There is no use having opaque brushes, smudges and erasers in one long list.

3. Transformation tools are awkward. Why can't I just use cross hairs tool to do it all? In reality moving and scaling/rotating are almost always done together. The only other option for such tool would be a switch at the bottom: "proportional/free".

4. Ability to re-arrange tools (I believe, it's coming): add/remove tools, move toolbox to where you need it (more important for those working with one hand and using pencil to change tool).

5. Why redo button is buried so deep? And away from "undo"?

6. Palette on the right. Believe it or not, I haven't used it once for getting the color. Either creating mini color scheme somewhere in the corner or (more often) picking it from the existing ones on the canvas. So it's a total waste of so precious screen real estate for me.

7. Doing art on iPad is a very new thing and, therefore, there are very few "success stories". We're learning it. For example, one always tend to work in the center of the screen, because moving art is so easy with fingers. This means it's OK to use screen corners for something useful: mod button(s), palettes, thumbnail of the canvas, reference images, etc.

8. I remove finished works from iPad (no unlimited storage) and keep them in iCould (it's cheap). Why are they all in my ASP thumbnail library? For nostalgic purposes? I have photogram and Files for that. I'd rather have all reference, sketches, trials, parts in that thumbnail library. People rarely work on more that 2-3 things in parallel. If this meant to be a replacement for Apple photos, then it needs all the goodies of it: albums, tags, metadata, etc.

In Artstudio Pro reset does not make sense because you cannot modify builtin brushes.
I mean after you modify it, app automatically creates new group, leaving original builtin group unchanged.

Just write you worst things here.
I think one of them is "Elastify" filter (aka Liquify, Warp) from old ArtStudio - we are working on this now, it is almost ready.
The other one can be missing User's Manual - we are working on this as well, however we need time to finish it.

Rotation is snapped only when the angle is close to zero, so you can easily go back to standard, not-rotated view.

I think, rather than suggesting new (and sometimes unnecessary) features, it'd be more informative to the developers if each one list the worst 3-5 things in the current app. This way it'd become less of a personal preference and more of the vox populi, a real usability issue. Maybe it'd be better if there was a separate section for that with some voting mechanism.

This post relates to the following:

..... Art Studio Pro v.1.1.6 (March 12, 2018)
..... iPad Pro 10.0.2
..... Apple Pencil

My last post was basically ignored. Tim answered, but either he didn't try my step-by-step to reproduce my problem, or he... I don't know.

So I'll spare myself some time and just ask when you think the brushes might work.

By that I mean that each and every preset can be individually reset, the settings function as they are supposed to, the settings don't ALL go back to defaults when you only want to reset one item to defaults, and they don't keep reverting to presets you've never used, or at least not in months, every time you blink, etc., etc., etc.

I've been pretty patient, but a lot of time has gone by, and, in my opinion, this isn't even ready for beta testing (at least in the brush area), let alone several months in public release.

Having said that, I've made use of it for cropping. That works well.


But to do art, to sketch and paint, I continue to use Procreate. All I really wanted was to have some fun with this and sketch a few things. But that is IMPOSSIBLE for me, given that I tend to make my own brushes for everything, and your entire brush system is chaos, in my opinion.

Thanks for the response
Good to know some of the suggestions are already planned :)
Regarding number 3, I meant canvas rotation.

Thanks for the tip regarding number 4, it wasn't obvious but i like the duplicate layer trick!
