Beta 1.8.0.526 Wacom pen, cannot switch to eraser

Recommended Posts

In the latest Beta turning the Wacom pen upside down in order to switch to the eraser does not work anymore. In the stable version it still works as expected.

What tablet you've got? With my tablet (Wacom Intuos Pro Small, standard pen that came with it) it does not work. But as soon as I switch back to the stable version it works again as expected.

Sorry, I thought that's the name of the pen. Apparently it's dependent on the tablet model. With my tablet switching to the eraser (and back to the previous tool) is the only thing that does not work, everything else is fine. I realized that the switch for high precision tablet input in the settings is gone, maybe it has something to do with this change. Well, it's a beta after all...

Wacom CTL-4100, Mac, Current 1.9.0 AP

Pen-Button is set to Eraser in Wacom Settings.  Eraser works in Microsoft OneNote but not in Affinity Photo.

Is there some additional Setting I have to do in AP?

Hi @cusertrumpl,

It seems that the "erase" function is not coming through correctly when mapped to a button. However, this works fine with an eraser tip pen. 

As a workaround, you would need to set the button to a keystroke (E). That will switch to the brush tool. Issue now logged. 

(macOS only issue, Windows is not affected)
