    I like to use the Brush tool in small sizes.
    With size on 0-15% it produces white spots in my black lines or even interrupts.
    On bigger sizes it works as it should.

    I’m not saying it couldn’t be a bug, but it sure sounds like you do not have your pen working correctly. I mean, is pressure working? Often this is an indicator that your pen is only working with mouse coordinates. This means low resolution and therefore jaggies – especially visible when the line it thin.

    Sorry if I am misunderstanding the situation?

    Yes pressure is working.
    It could be my old scratched wacom. Put in a new nib though, for this test.
    Doesnt have many levels of pressure either.

    Thanks a lot for these testshots, Nathan! Very helpful. Something is going on, I see that. But I have never seen this before – weird “pauses” in the line. Very interesting. I will have to show these shots to Frederik (programmer). Cool! Thanks again!

    Hi again Nathan,

    So we studied your shots. Very peculiar to us.

    We see that the holes in the lines occur ONLY when the line are either horizontal or vertical.

    Also we notice that the bold strokes are not continuous along the edge, they are sort of bulgy. That is not normal.

    Could you help us with a small test? Do this:

    Start with a clean project (New). Draw just one not too long stroke with the problem (hole) in it. You can undo lines until you get a small stroke with the problem in it. Then save and send me the .ap file! (niels at animationpaper.com) We can look at the data structure to see if something gives us a clue. Thank you!

    Thanks to Nathan who just sent me the test .ap file – featuring a line with a hole in it 🙂
