Hi, my Apple Pencil does not work with live brushes or pixel brushes. I have to use my fingers for those but I can use the Apple Pencil for vector brush and other features though. Is there anything I need to do to make it work with all brushes?

I'm sorry it took me so long to report the results. At the end, it looks that it was a bug from the 13.1 iOS. When the next update came, more brushes started to work and with the latest one, I am able to use almost 80% of the brushes. It was bizarre because the pencil seemed to work with other applications but fresco. But now it is fine. Thanks for your help!

That is a strange one that I haven't heard before.

Can you verify the tip is tightly screwed in to the pencil? Loose tips create intermittent performance and I've seen that issue before.

 

What kind of iPad are you using?

Hi. I checked the pencil´s tip and it seems good.  Pencil works fine with adobe sketch or other applications. I am using Apple pro 3rd generation. In adobe fresco it works with the other functions but those brushes.

Hi. 

 

This is very strange; Pencils usually either work or don't work. A few things I'd like you to do:

* Please first make sure it it's fully charged. 

* Then, unpair it from your device (Settings > Bluetooth > Forget This Device) then re-pair it. 

* Before you try it again, create a new Pixel Layer (do that with a tap-and-hold on the + icon and choose Pixel Layer), then choose either a Pixel Brush or a Live Brush and try drawing. 

 

Please let me know if this continues. 

 

Sue.
