Bought the Pro But Can’t Access The Ruler Options

I loved using the free version, so decided to upgrade. However, I’m disappointed as I’m trying to use the ruler to get shapes and mirror images but for some reason this is not an option. I’m not sure if this is because I’m working on my MacBook Air and the other ruler options are for ipad use only. This needs to be made clear when purchasing. The help online isn’t really useful for asking questions and finding specific answers. I’d just like to be able to use the ruler fully!!

Could be great, but falls short

The idea behind it and the interface are great, simple, the results that the brushes provide are also pretty good and realistic. What ruins is that it’s very buggy. Keeps messing up the synchronicity with my Intuos tablet (it only happens with this app), and sometimes it becomes unresponsive and crashes. It needs an overhaul. I’d also suggest incorporating updates (like different brushes or textures), in the style of SketchBook.

Fantastic capability but keeps crashing

I love this app but it keeps crashing and loosing work and so I saved every few mins or for each step I did thinking I wouldnt loose things but saving doesnt even seem to make a difference, I've lost so much of my work Im now reluctant to use it as I’m fed up of going back several steps on each peice of work. If they fixed the bug I would give it 5 stars and use it all the time. So fustrating as it could be amazing.
