Fluid Brush sometimes works, most of the time it doesn't respond

I haven't used Animate for years, so finding out there is now a fluid brush was great for me, since the brushes have always been a disaster in this program.

 

But, of course, it just doesn't work right away. It sometimes works. When I tap with my pen a couple of times it can sometimes draw a line. All other times it doesn't. 

 

Thinkpad with Wacom pen. Drawing for years on programs which are not Animate works great. Once I decide to use Aimate again, years later after the last time - brush problems again. Incredible.

I haven't experienced any issues with the Fluid Brush tool yet and I've tested it with the tackpad on my MacBook Pro, Wacom Intuos, Cintiq displays, XP-Pen displays and an Xencelabs drawing tablet. Have you tested the Wacom drivers? I assume they are up to date if you haven't experienced issues in other drawing programs. But it just may not be Animate. Perhaps your system resources?

Hi there--

I am having fluid brush issues in Animate 2022 as well. I am trying to follow along with Intro to Adobe Animate https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-woaDyBXkyU , but when I try using the fluid brush at 11:44 in video, whether I use my wacom tablet or mouse, the part I paint shows up until I stop painting and then disappears from the screen. The brush tool works, however. Have spent over an hour trying to troubleshoot, research, reboot. 

Anybody else have this issue? Solution?

Thanks.
