I love it

I love it, but it won’t work when I use my stylus

Drawings keep disappearing

I used the first version of Brushes and loved it so was thrilled when it came back. However, making a drawing with layers, the second layer keeps disappearing whenever I stop drawing. This is just no good anymore.
