@EyeOdin Well for one, it won’t work for small brush sizes. For the second it adds clutter to centre where you want to decently see what you are doing . I could imagine an E symbol or something to lower/upper right/left that would make more sense as it doesn’t compromise the view and doesn’t depend on the brush size.
@pablo Interface red button would work only for people who don’t work in canvas only mode, there are also huge display sizes (especially wacom) where interface at the top gets really out of view. So I think the change to shape/cursor is probably the most reasonable here
I personally think XOR which @Deevad has a gif of combined with something @ramskulls @Rebecca and @Andreich_DMBL suggest looks like the best option for me. Especially if you can turn it on/off in settings.
And if possibly you could turn on/off them separately - two options one for outline and one for cursor, there are already two options in settings for cursor and outline so it wouldn’t be out of line too much - this could satisfy: only cursor people, only outline people, cursor + outline people who would have option for cusor or outline or cursor + outline erase mode indications, it would work for other tools too - line, …, why I suggest both options being able to turn on/off separately is not only for this but also with smaller brush sizes the outline can easily get lost for some people especially if you have some problems with vision while adding an icon would be a particularly good option for these cases (but people who don’t want it could turn it off) while also working in canvas mode.
(a note from previous discussion in case someone doesn’t know, unlike outline the cursor are images)
So my vote would be for XOR + cursor icon indicator with both being optional in settings and definitely would love to see something happen, can we possibly add this to the poll please?
Now, whether this is feasible for the devs or not I’ll leave up to them I think that’s something only devs can tell us so I’ll be going with a generous option and maybe see what you guys and the devs think about it?
