Colour picker doesn't work anymore :/


Recommended Posts

Hi all!

I have a similar issue with the brush.

A long press actually paints a dot before picking a color, which influences the color I am trying to select. A second long press erases the unwanted dot, but the color picker still mixes both the color of the brush and of the image.

If, with the brush still selected, I tap on the color swath in the bottom tool bar (to the right of the protect alpha button) to bring up the color selection pop-up menu and then tap and drag the color picker icon in the upper left corner of the pop-up, the color selection is accurate and there is no involuntary painting, but the pop-up flickers and the cursor’s movement is very jittery and not at all accurate.

Related issue: in the liquify persona, when using the freeze tool, pinching to zoom leaves one dot frozen of the size of the brush.

Wow! Still no fix? Does anybody actually work there? Or explanation? Maybe Infinity is now a ghost company??

@Iggy13 hey don’t blame the staff blame the pandemic  some things take time and this would have been fixed if there wasn’t any pandemic or anything that was keeping the hold up so be patient OK

Isn’t UK back in ‘lockdown'? That wouldn’t help.
In Victoria we are just coming out of a 110 day lockdown, restricted to home for 22hrs a day, no visitors! Harsh but hopefully effective. Required due to incompetent government, setting up a failed quarantine system. Businesses suffer as a result.

How is this bug not fixed yet? This is such a critical bug. Painting without being able to color pick off the screen directly makes it an excruciatingly slow process. It's been nearly 2 months now and this bug is not fixed in the beta build either.

Can we please get some hotfixes to address critical bugs like this? People have been waiting for so long already.

Well it’s January 7 the year 2021. I have to say a couple of times in the last two weeks the colour picker actually worked! 😆👏🏽👏🏽 I was happily surprised because it’s been almost a year now since it was broken for me. But it stopped working again! 😭😭😭Anyway I wonder about all the people who used to use this formerly great app. I’d like to know if they all went back on to Photoshop or Procreate? It’s been a long time broken. ☹️

Sadly I had to switch to Procreate. And it’s a mystery to me why this is still not fixed. Really sad as I used AP on daily bases in my workflow.

I’ve tried this is in 1.8.6.198 and in beta 1.9.0.211 and can’t fault it. Have you tried the beta?

but as I have a lot of commercial work

Beta definitely not good for commercial work as it’s  files won’t open in earlier versions. The beta does install totally separately though so you would still have your 'for work' version. It should be ok to install and test to see if the issue is still there. I have an older model iPad Pro and maybe that makes a difference?
