Changing brush size lag

I noticed this and I think since the last patch it got somehow worse.

Sometimes when I shift + click+drag to change brush size krita hangs for a few seconds. I have this mostly on soft airbrush. It’s very annoying.

Anyone have the same issue?

I did have it on the first resize I do when I run the program. But it’s gone since 4.2.4 IIRC. I have a mac, and krita and apple don’t get along so may not be related at all.

I have it on mac and pc, (work on both). And it seems using mouse isn’t the same issue. It happend at first and then again after a white. Now with latest version it happens almost all the time and it throws me off so much.

If it doesn’t do it with the mouse, maybe there’s a driver issue with your tablet ? (I don’t dev krita, just throwing ideas)

It might be this bug that you are experiencing.

Same here, with airbrush for example, when it get smaller it’s smooth but before it jump…

i dont know if this will help. it helped me. i went to direct3d 11 driver instead of open gl. with modern graphics cards i cant for the life of me figure out why anyone would want open gl. this post from reddit helped me. https://www.reddit.com/r/krita/comments/a10qe4/krita_brush_lag_fix/

I have the same issue (4.2.8 on Windows 10), luckily I am used to using decrease/increase brush size shortcuts so I don’t experience it. But trying out Shift to change brush sizes I experience the lag you are describing. Shift + Mouse work more smoothly, weird.

Tested it on todays Krita Next build, and it’s fixed for me at least! :grin: Works super smooth compared to 4.2.8!

It was a bug exclusive to 4.2.8 and it should be already fixed on both Krita Next (active development version). and Krita Plus (next release, stable version).

are those builds available for download somewhere? thanks.

Yes. I would suggest trying out the beta version here: https://krita.org/en/item/krita-4-2-9-beta-released/ which is basically Krita Plus, but that way if you find a bug, it’ll be easier for you to tell us which exact version you’re using :slight_smile: If we don’t find bugs that weren’t in previous versions, we’ll release this build in one and a half week.

I can confirm it seems a LOT faster and wihtout lag in new 2.8.9 beta. Thx for fixing. :smiley:

Yes it works in 4.2.9:)
