It would help to see the Layers panel, so we can tell  the layer structure.

Some more testing. 2.2.1 Photo and Designer does the light/dark flashing thing in the 2nd video but not the broken, not visible thing in the first.  2.3 Designer does both, just like Photo does. 
i also tested on Retrosupply’s Color lab, which is the same type of layer thing, and got the results.

i do think it’s a memory management issue. These template files are quite large: 4000x6000 px at 600 dpi. If I cut that down to 1000 x 1500 x 72 dpi and drop the paper texture image file the brushes paint properly. Somewhere in between the apps seem to run out out men and 2.3 is a little worse.

This is a known problem, https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/search/&tags=AF-489

The way that the True Grit layers are setup in that template, your artwork is part of a Group. You should be able to select the group layer (named Colors) and from the Edit menu click Ungroup. Your brush should work properly after that.

Thanks for the links. That fixes the broken line issue but not the highight-half-of-the-screen issue in the 2nd video.  I’ll probably have to stick to the desktop for this.  It looks like a longstanding bug. 

incidentally, when I ungrounded the colors, I inadvertently started painting on all four layers at the same time because they were all selected.  I didn’t know I could do that, so I learned two things today 😃
