help my pixel brush editor will not open
« on: June 08, 2019, 03:05:07 AM »
hi
i wanted to change  a pixel brush slightly
and found that my AD locks up and crashes if i double click on  a brush in the brush panel

these are the steps i took would someone have a go and tell me i its me or AD.



i make a new doc.

i go to the pixel persona

i choose the brush tool

open the brushes and choose a brush

i double left click on the brush in the brush panel library

and AD locks up completely sometime unresponsive .(after 45 minutes nothing)

sometimes milky screen and each time i have to use the Task manager to shut down

the vector brushes work as they should     :dunno2:

I'm up teejay, and I just opened AD and tried to replicate your problem.  I tried more than a few brushes  on the pixel side but could not get your problem to show here.  They all worked as they should.  Sorry.

Teejay, I only had time to try it out and, unlike Linda, AD immediately blocked and I had to stop her with the task manager (almost 2000 mb of memory alone!).
I never double-click in the brush panel so it never happened to me.

Yikes!  Sorry to hear this but happy you are able to reinstall things.  I hate it when something such as this starts my day off.....Good luck.

Teejay, I just did another test and the result is the same, AD freezes (1993 mO of memory usage). It looks like (less radical since the whole computer doesn't lock) what happens when I want to install the brushes provided with version 1.7, I think it comes from my small configuration.
Good luck with your reinstallations!

What a pita Teejay. Good luck with all the reinstallations. I haven't installed all of my programmes yet after a crash a few months ago.


Having a few issues with getting my tablet & Pen to work propertly in AD over past few weeks so not playing as much as I would like to...don't like using the mouse, feels clumsy.
Tomorrow is another day. Today is now, live it to the full!.
