Love the app, but have a problem

I have been using this app for years, mostly for isolating subjects of interest on photographs. So I predominantly use the eraser function. Since the last update I find it frustrating because I can’t readily change to a color because I seem to be stuck with the erasing function. I use iPad Pro and the Apple Pencil.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for review. Is last update ver2.3.5? In ver2.x later, Could you try to flick pencil icon which change to erase function (and back to pencil). If detailed consultation is necessary, can you mail me? Thank you. (tiziano at

Looks like this app is working much better on iPad Pro

Looks like your app is working better, now!
Have not experience any crashing with the new update.
Worked on two sketches for over 30 minutes with no crash.
I’ll continue using this as it seems your app is working much better, even with my third party Adonit stylus.
Thank You for tracking down the issue.
I will keep you updated here if I find any other issues!
I use your app a lot through the years!

Developer Response ,

Eye dropper

I am having trouble finding the eye dropper if there is one.
When I press on a color in my painting one colored spot will
color but the lines of the rest of them remain the color they
were before.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for review.
Please press and hold the eye dropper without moving your finger.
When the color of the pencil icon changes, colors are extracted.
Please release your fingers and draw a line.
Thank you.
