Cursor shapes are different?

My pencil pixel brush cursor is a crosshair after the latest update. Other pixel brushes look like the brush shape and size, as expected. Eraser and vector brush are circles. Live brush is showing no cursor at all (78 px). How do I get the brush sized cursor back for all tools? 
thanks, newbie here, working on iPad Pro.

Hi. Let me check with the team about this; I suspect it's working as intended (so people can have some indication of where a mark will be made). Sue.

Hi, 

 

The pencil and  pen do  not show a brush stamp preview, but the rest of your brushes should. 

 

The brush stamp preview seems to be working as expected for me. (That said, some of  them are quite difficult to see especially with grayscale colors.) Have you tried going in to App  Settings > Input > Brush Preview and turning off the setting, then force-quitting Fresco, relaunching it, then turning the setting back on?

 

Let me know if you start seeing it consistently.

 

Sue,

Hi Sue. Finally got a chance to try out your advice. And I even restarted the iPad for good measure. No luck. If I turn off the brush preview I don't see the crosshairs for the pencil. If I turn on the crosshairs, I see crosshairs for everything. If I keep brush preview on I have crosshairs for the pencil, but the normal preview for other brushes. 

 

Next thing I will try is uninstall/force reboot/reinstall. Sometimes a force reboot can work wonders. Will let you know if that changes anything. And if you have any other ideas please share.

Following up: no change with uninstall/restart/reinstall. 

 

Is it a bug?

Hi.

 

There are no brush stamps for the pen and pencil.

 

But are they working for all of your other brushes?

Yes, they are working for all the other brushes.

 

The only thing I want is to not have the crosshairs for the pencil when the brush stamp preview is turned on. The only way to turn it off is to turn off preview and crosshairs for all brushes.

Hi dDembicki. 

 

It is expected behavior. So in order to not have the crosshairs you'd have to turn  off the Brush Preview. Which, wouldn't bee too bad if you're using the Pen or the Pencil for a long period of time (as opposed to switching back-and-forth between other brushes). 

 

I leave the Brush Preview off but checked it to see what you were seeing... I can see why it might be sort of, er, bothersome (it seems to move faster than the stroke).  🙂

 

Sue.
