Brush Tool not working

Recommended Posts

Hi there - can anyone tell me why the brush tool isnt working all the sudden? 


I tried moving the layer to top, chaning colour, restarting the app... nothing. Y? 

The actions are showing , but nothing actually painting.

Please post questions about the iPad version of Affinity Photo to the iPad Questions sub-forum. You will get more & better help if you do because users of that app are more likely to read it.

Hey Nada,


You don't have Touch for gestures only enabled in Preferences > Tools do you? 

I use an Apple Pencil quite a bit and often get caught out by this when I try and use my finger to paint.

Hey guys I was experiencing this too. I see there was never a resolution. It took me awhile but I realized this button was selected on the brushes options. (See Photo) 


Does anybody know what exactly that button means? It kept me from being able to see any brushes at all.
