it would be good to be able to manage the eraser, or better as in ADOBE DRAW, to be able to modify it. Like the rest of the brushes, make it become thinner (and not just big or small) in few words like the conical brush.

we hope fresh Adobe will update this solution.

I've moved this post to the Fresco board.  In Fresco, if you use the Eraser tool, you can control size and flow. However, you can turn any brush you're currently using into an eraser temporarily by pressing your finger on the touch control button (circle in the lower left of the screen). This is the shortcut for "Erase with brush." You can also double-tap the touch control to toggle between erase and brush mode, if you prefer not to hold your finger on the control as you erase.

I actually prefer the puck turing the brush into an eraser option.  It also makes things great to draw in a reductive manner

you haven't?  That's what happens when you use activate the little circle thing.  Its the equivalent in Photoshop,  if you set your brush to "clear" instead of normal or multiply

I'm afraid to say I can't get this to work for me - much like the lady in another post.  Whether I press & hold the control button or double press the brush continues to paint rather than erase.  I've checked to see whether touch shortcut and erase are selected in settings

If in doubt - keep trying.  After many attempts to make this work for me I shut down the app and then re-launched it and in so doing the app defaulted to a pixel brush rather than the flow brush that I had been using.  Lo and behold the touch control worked with the pixel brush as advertised, i.e. erase with brush.

 

I still can't get either erase or erase with brush to work when using a flow brush but maybe my expectations are wrong?

Ok, hands up, my expectations were wrong and Fresco is doing what it says on the tin.  For pixel & vector brushes touch control can be set to erase with brush but for flow brushes touch control enables a 'clear' brush.  If in doubt RTFM

Hi, I find it annoying that if I paused for a second, my brush turns into erasure. Is there any way not to have this automatically.

Hi Ragvy. 

 

Your brush should not be turning into an eraser when drawing is pause. A couple of questions:

* Are you by any chance using an Apple Pencil 2? If you are, could you be activating the double-tap function?

* Or is it possible you're activating the Touch Shortcut?

 

Please let me know what you find.

 

Sue.

Thanks for your help. I am using finger tips so it might be the shortcut issue. Do you know how to disable Touch shortcut please. Thanks in advance.

Hi Ragvy. 

 

To toggle off the Touch Shortcut, open a drawing, then tap the gear icon in the top nav. Then from the Layer settings menu tap the Touch Shortcut toggle. 

 

Let me know if that keeps the brush from becoming an eraser. 

 

Sue.

But how do you modify the behavior of the "Eraser" as opposed to erase with brush.   If you select "Eraser" for your top button or touch control, it defaults to a hard edge circle that erases 100%.  Is there a way to modify that, I would like a softer edge with erasing 50% or so with each pass.  So more like a paper eraser works.

Okay, figured it out: the "Eraser" defaults to the tool "Hard Round Variable" in the eraser palette.  So you can modify that.
