Dear community, i have difficulties while using standard tools for drawing in Designer. Usually I have a pixel layer selected and switch between brush and erase tool with the keyboard (b and e key). In 50% of the usage the brush tool doesn't work after switching back from erase. It just doesn't paint at all no matter how I switch brushes, sizes or colors, my drawing is "empty". When I move the layer I "painted" on on top of my artboard and switch around the tools sometimes it works again, my drawing becomes visible and I can move my layer to the place it was before where it works for another minute. It seems like a bug to me and if it is on purpose it is really annoying because there is no obvious logic behind it. I also switched my assistant to "share brushes" when I switch tools, this doesn't make any difference. Also when I type "e" for erase and start erasing on my selected layer the selection changes to a random layer on the bottom of my document and I have to scroll back find my original layer. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you in advance! Devendra
Ok I was requested to start a new thread if this still existed so here it goes. The issue is that shortcuts like b or v sometimes select layers by that name instead of the tool. Initially it seemed related to floating windows, but I have found a way to consistently reproduce this issue without the floating windows or separate mode! Enable "Shift to cycle tools" Create a few layers. Group them and name this group "B layer" Add a few layers below this group Group these layers. No need to name the lower group but for the purpose of this explanation I will refer to this as the LOWER group. Now select the bottom most layer in this lower group Add a new layer with the shortcut (cmd shift N)- Now a new layer is created above the bottom layer. Drag this layer to be the bottom layer in its group now press "b". Expected: Brush tool selected (or alert sound if brush tool is already selected). Instead: TOP group named "B Layer" is now selected. Check the attached movie OSX Mojave - MPB 2018 - AP Beta 229 Keyboard_Shortcut_Bug.mov
