I am on my second day of AD and I'm enjoying it, but I have seem to run into a problem that is really bugging me.

I have a vector object (red circle) on a layer with another layer nestled under it that is being used for brushes (white) in Pixel Persona so that the brushes are constrained to that object (red circle) only, and all this is on a white background.

There seems to be an issue of the brushes not fully coloring the edges of the red object. You can see a thin red line at the outer perimeter of the red object. It's visible at all distances of zoom. There is also no stroke on the object. 

I've included screenshots of the thin line issue and how the layers are setup.

How do I get rid of this? Is this common? Any ideas on a fix that isn't a janky work around? I'd like to be able to constrain the brushes to a specific object without having the unsightly edge.

Thanks for your time,

I think what you are seeing is probably the snapping candidate indicator. Try either temporarily disabling Snapping (by clicking on the magnet icon in the main toolbar) or disable the "Show snapping candidates" option (shown when you click on the triangle icon next to the magnet icon).


This indicator is not saved with the document; it is just a visual aid you can turn on or off.

Thanks for the suggestion, but it seems that the issue still remains a mystery.

EDIT: Also, it doesn't seem to be showing up in exporting, but it's still pretty distracting…at least to me. :P
