No symmetry option for pixel tool

Recommended Posts

I wonder why the 2.0 version of Photo on iPad does not have a symmetry option for the pixel tool? I can not check the v2 dektop version yet, as I don't have a newer Mac. However on v1, I could have symmetry in the brush and the pixel tool, but in v2 on iPad, symmetry is only available for the brush? Is this a bug or is there reasoning behind this omission?

Possible workaround for the meantime (but I cannot test it on an iPad):

  1. Create a pixel layer.
  2. Draw a random placeholder.
  3. In the top menu go do Layer → Duplicate Linked.
  4. Move/rotate/scale/mirror the linked layer.
  5. This is repeatable as often as you like.
  6. If you edit on one layer, all other layers get updated as well.

Maybe this helps? 😉

Edit: I also noticed that the official symmetry feature with brushes doesn't have an option to create odd symmetries – like a three or five leafed/bladed/planed (or whatever you call it) symmetry, as shown in my attachment. I used the above technique.

Edit Edit: Resizing with the workaround kind of breaks the links. @LeeThorpe, I guess this is a bug as well?
