Hi ynsongcn,

Welcome to the forums!

I have recently imported 20 brushes into Designer in .abr format in the Pixel Persona without error, so the issue may be file specific. If possible, could you provide me with a copy of your .abr brushes? Feel fee to PM them to me if you do not wish for the file to be public :)

I've loaded lots of .abr files, but a few have failed, and a few work, but incorrectly. My guess from looking at the files, and or download sources, is that there was a format change in .abr. Ones made recently seem to be fine, but ones from some years ago seem to break up, and become a bunch of streaks.

Thanks for the further info gdenby, if possible could you provide me with a few samples of those that work and those that don't so we can investigate this further and log it with out developers? :)

I tossed those that I had problems w., but still had a d-load file. They are in a set called georgeguo. Some seem to work OK, others have this odd striping effect. Attached is a screen shot of a vertical stroke made w. one, and the brush settings dialog. I notice the usual S-curve stroke illustration is partial. Others long discarded were much worse.
