Cutter acting weird

I honestly love this app so much but I’ve been facing a weird problem lately with the cutter. It will select things in a square shape when it usually selected according to the way I drew it(idk whether this is the way it’s supposed to happen) and also won’t let me duplicate or copy or paste. Please fix!

Moderately good

I purchased this app yesterday and from what I’ve learned, the app is a great use to share your art with others and has unique features such as playing a sound when you use different tools etc. I want to point out the flaws only so you can improve your app. First, the layers. I find it really hard to draw without them, only if you buy the pro version can you do so, which I find unfair. I’m not sure if you get unlimited layers on the pro version or not, but how about you give a free 3 layers and if you buy the pro version you get unlimited? Layers is a key subject to digital art, because it is hard to colour in between the outline as in traditional art, it is much easier in my opinion. Second, I love the unique ‘community’ page, but you can’t really find the people’s art you love... once they’re there and next time it’s all just luck to see their other posts. Maybe create a search bar so you can find your favorite artist, or even find art related to the subject, eg. apple
or birds. Another thing is that the same art stays up for so long and then you have to scroll all the way to find new art, maybe make a refresh button or something else? Otherwise, great app, useful tools and really unique features. Keep it up!
