If you have a recommendation for an alternate tutorial, or care to explain the process yourself, I'd be open to that. I then tried opening a new page and the same border was there and I couldn't use the same tools. Ah well, on to the paintbrush. My problem is after a few times doing this the eraser stops working and I can't see a way around it. Because each end of the stylus is treated as a separate input device, and each input device has its own separate tool assignment, the reverse end will then continue to function as an Eraser as long as you don't select a different tool with it. I do not know how to change that or even if it is possible. Back to the pen tip, you will see that it will automatically switched to the previous tool you were using…! Pixels can use combinations of these channels, basically mixing colors to make other colors like you did in elementary school.
The red line that you're seeing is supposed to disappear when you release the mouse, and at the same time, the part you erase should disappear. Whenever I try to mask something in quick mask mode and then erase the background around it I can erase the background successfully, however it also fades the part of the image that I am trying to mask. Very strange that the mouse is also affected. So, make sure you have the correct layer selected or don't have a small selection elsewhere that you cannot see. If you have any odd behavior, such as it seems to be out of your control, you might have Snapping enabled. Try out several just to be sure. In the meantime, it would be great if someone could give us one consistent answer regarding how to get it functioning normally again.
Thanks for this—I just got caught out by the same problem! Instead it acts like a weird paintbrush, filling transparent areas with the foreground color. I've tried different images, even ones that I have done successfully previously. I'll take a screenshot on my next photo tonight. A menu of options will appear. Check select in the menu and if none is highlighted it means you have one. Strangely, if I select black as the colour, there is a low opacity effect even though settings are at 100, but with any other colour.
I can do this 10 or 20 time when for some reason the eraser does nothing. Jan 29, 2014 20:27 Terry50 Wrote: Oh, wow, I opened another and the opacity was 100% and the eraser wouldn't erase. And humour me and tell us what the background colour is set to. And normally, keyboard shortcuts should set the tool for the currently active device. It would have to be something quite specific like color from gradient or speed-size-opacity. Mode settings seem to be active on every other tool that has a mode setting.
All I need is for the program to function properly when I send it a command. The image has an Alpha channel. But guaranteed I will be coming back to this again and again for reference! Well, if you have Wacom tablet, you should know that our pen have eraser on the top. That's because the Eraser wants to close the path the new straight segment. I guess since the Eraser tool all of Inkscape, technically can't edit the raster image, it's probably no interest as far as bugs that the red line doesn't disappear.
I've deleted and started again with the layer and close and reopened the file. The background colour isn't really relevant. Sorry I went into such detail on what I do. I initially learned it from the video below, to cut to the chase go to about 4 minutes in. The problem is that even after reinstalling Gimp the erase key fails to work. If the Layers Dialog was already open it will blink. The eraser tool does not work on a layer mask.
For example: if I were to rename my current profile. Don't forget also, that any tool will only work in a specific selection. Once you rename your current user profile. Note that on some systems, the Alt key is trapped by the Window Manager. This is similar to , but this is occurring using a mouse. I've uninstalled and reinstalled, deleted my user profile, tried enlarging the layer, matching the layer to size but still nothing. Combining channels in different ways basically gives you every color of the rainbow.
I switched to eraser - but it is acting like I'm trying to erase something off the transparency layer and won't erase anything. By the way, I just noticed my profile says version 2. Another thing I can think of: do you have several layer and are you erasing the right one? Now when I erase I no longer get white, I get a checkered background. I have the correct layer selected in the layers window.
