Selecting curves w/Apple pen ( lack precision selecting)

Thanks for the confirmation. I was a bit confused because this topic was posted in the Bugs On iPad forum, so I was trying to figure out how much of this is caused by bugs on the iPad app vs. bugs that affect both versions, & what if any workaround would work on the iPad. O.o

I remember reading about this problem on the Desktop version a while ago but did not investigate it then, so I decided to take a look now as I had some time on my hand this morning and it looked like the iPad version was suffering the same symptoms.

I made a copy of the Slanted Ink Pen (in app ADi brush) and changed the  size variance.
@carl123 : The brush image doesn’t look the same on the iPad? My pressure curves are not flat either. Here is a screen grab of what is displayed;

When I get back from work I will exporting the work that has already been done, flattened, into an new blank canvas and continue from there. Hopefully the area 51 (that’s hilarious btw) won’t be a reoccurring issue. Maybe it’s a corrupted file from importing it from ADm? 
(I will also avoid drawing any triangles where lines may start disappearing mysteriously.. :10_wink:  )

Thank you all for looking into this :)

The symptoms certainly suggest the same underlying problem, but there is one difference: at least on my iPad the suggested workaround of switching to outline view mode does not work -- the curve selected on the canvas is often not the one I tap on, either with a finger or the Apple Pencil.

I am not sure what to make of that, but I wonder if the issue is more about pressure curves that don't reach 100% of the stroke width than just the properties of the brush used, or how the two interact, but I am not at all clear on how they should interact so I don't know how to test for that.

Strange things happen in Area 51, I guess we may never know the true story

But I suspect the Devs will fix it in a future update
