iPad eraser opacity not working

  • VIEW 212

I downloaded clip studio for mobile on my iPad. I have a problem with the eraser tool. It doesn't offer any opacity settings that actually work. Other software usually has options where I can change the opacity of the eraser so that I can lighten up lines like I would with a kneaded eraser.

The clip studio mobile app seems to be unable to provide any opacity. There are settings for pen pressure and tilt opacity,not really how I'd want to use opacity, but they don't work either.

I would prefer a straight up opacity slider that allows me to emulate an eraser to lighten up the lines.

If its something I am missing could someone please advise?

If its not in the design, will it be implemented at some point? I'm really surprised it doesn't work like most other packages.

    Yes, we have it
    I don't know what the iPad palette looks like
    Although the explanation is not accurate
    If you choose the eraser of the sub tool
    Check the tool properties
    If you can't see it in the tool properties
    Check the sub tool details
    Select the sub tool details category "Ink"

    The opacity is shown as a slider. Like brush size etc.
    The problem is it performs no function. I can change the opacity but it makes no difference to the opacity of the eraser.

    I have just checked again and it appears that the opacity slider doesn't not perform any action even on the pen tool, not just the eraser tool!
    I hadnt noticed cause I dont usually alter the opacity of my brushes or pens unless I am colouring.

    Anyway, the opacity can not be altered on the iPad as far as I can see.

    If you could tel me how to lower the opacity on the eraser or pen I would be very happy

    Try restarting your iPad
    It seems that it is often fixed by restarting

    Thanks. I was thinking that.

    I restarted but nothings changed. its so weird. If I reduce opacity the tool shape icon/image shows the opacity reducing, it goes feint, but the actual opacity doesn't alter. It erases clean and full opacity. How annoying! Its making it almost unusable. I was hoping for a nice manga toolkit other than Ibis.

    Any other ideas?

    It's possible with Ibis
    I can't think of a cause
    I can only think of contacting CELSYS support

    Actually it isn't working as I expect!!! agh.

    It works perfectly on illustration canvases but not on comic pages!

    I thought I'd fixed it cause it opened an illustration page on startup. But when I went to my saved comic page, the opacity doesn't work. Very strange.

    In the new illustration, the layer whose expression color is color is used.
    New comics use layers with monochrome expression colors
    The color layer also contains opacity,
    There are only three monochrome layers, "white", "black" and "transparent".
    There is no intermediate color such as "semi-transparent black" or "semi-transparent white"

    Ok, Soooo it appears to be to do with a comic page being monochrome by default.

    If I change the 'basic expression color' setting to colour it gives me opacity.

    In my existing comic I changed the setting in 'canvas properties', but this didn't really help, I had to change the actual layer, with 'convert layer' option.

    Phew, it works so i can stick with it for my manga.

    If you select "Layer Properties" from the "Window" menu
    The Layer Properties palette is displayed
    You can easily change the expression color of the layer to color, gray, or monochrome.
    The "Layer Properties" palette is
    There are some other settings you can make for a layer, depending on the type of layer.
    Tones and borders
    have fun
