Eraser size the same as paint brush unwanted.

Recommended Posts

I would like to have my eraser size larger than my paint brush size, but alas I can not achieve this. 

from what I read I should pick a brush and size for my eraser then switch to the paint brush and select a brush and a size.

This I have done but when I switch between Paint brush and eraser the eraser stays the same size as the paint brush.

What am I doing wrong? Is there some setting in the preferences I have set wrong or over looked.

Thanks

Hi uncle808us :)

My apologies, I'm a little confused by your question here - the Brush Tool and Eraser Tool are separate tools and hold their own properties.

You can select the Paint Brush and set it's size on the Context Toolbar, then select the Eraser Tool and you can set the size in the same location - these are independent of each other and should retain their own size when changing between tools.

Could you please provide a screen recording showing what you're referring to?

This is affected by your Assistant Manager setting. You can have Tools share the same size or retain separate sizes for each tool

Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be worried about.

The assistant Manager must be set for this to work.
