Need help with eraser tool in PE 19

#1) The brush tool ("type") doesn't work with the eraser tool. Only the pencil and block work.

 

#2) So I use the pencil tool and it has brushes, but I'm used to GIMP which has these really dispersed brushes where it's easy to kind of feather the things I erase. I can't find a way of doing that with PE. Yes, I can lower the opacity, but however I erase in PE there is a clean line of demarcation, which is what I don't want. How can I get that feathering effect with the eraser tool?

 

Thank you

Thanks very much, Jeff. That reset did the trick. I can now use the brush with the eraser tool. And erasing with the brush seems much more nuanced, more feathered if you will, than it did with the pencil. I think you've answered both my questions with the reset. Many thanks.

What happens when you try to use The Eraser in Brush mode?

 

Have you tried resetting the Eraser Tool by clicking on Reset Tool as pictured below?
