Amazing surprise update! 2 Stars added!

My review has been stuck at 2 stars for years now because while this app has always offered unmatched functionality, it remained crippled by its lack of keyboard support and convoluted UI. The latest update finally made this app useable so I’ve added 2 extra stars to my review.
- Keyboard support. Thank you SO much for adding keyboard support. This completely reinvigorates the usefulness of this app. Pixelmator on iPad is finally desktop-class.
- Convoluted UI saved by keyboard shortcuts. The UI remains unchanged and is still convoluted. Having all options tucked into one drop down menu is insane. To do one or two simple tasks I have to click and scroll through SO MANY drop downs...BUT, the latest update added keyboard shortcuts for just about everything I’d ever do in Pixelmator. This means I’ll never have to sift through that dreaded paintbrush-shaped drop down menu again as soon as I memorize all my favorite commands. So while the UI should still be rethought for people that don’t use a keyboard with their iPad, this keyboard-using Pixelmator-fanatic is beyond pleased.
Great job and thank you so much for this fantastic FREE update!

New update is awesome, but still a few missing things

Really love the new keyboard and trackpad support—really makes it feel like a pro app. Thanks for fixing the issues with selection editing with the keyboard too!

As some of the other reviews mentioned, the UI is definitely a little clunky especially on big iPad screens—especially the two modal screens you have to go through to choose a specific brush or selection type. The keyboard shortcuts make this a lot easier, but I don’t always have access to a keyboard (like when I’m drawing with Apple Pencil). Would love to have a tool sidebar kind of like the desktop Pixelmator app!

There’s also some keyboard functionality missing like being able to select multiple layers/objects on the canvas with Shift or Command.

A nice little bonus would be to have enhanced pointer shapes with brushes, erasers, etc. What if we had bigger pointers for larger brush sizes? Maybe a crosshair for more precise sizes? How about a unique pointer shape for the pixel brush tool, which also has pointer snapping to each pixel for even more precision? So many possibilities to make this a really unique experience for the iPad.

It would also be nice to have support for multiple windows to make working with multiple docs at the same time easier. Totally understand if this can’t be done due to app memory limits though…

Developer Response ,

Hey there, keyboard shortcuts with selections should be working just as you expect — could you email us at support@pixelmator.com about this with more details about your device and workflows? We'd love to take a closer look at why it's not working for you!
