Not switch between Pen tip and Eraser on Brush panel

Type of device* : Pen display
Brand and version of the device: Wacom Cintiq 16 DTK-1660
System** : Windows10Home ver.2004+ 2-in-1 laptop /w AES stylus + Wacom driver 6.3.42-2 + Krita 4.4.2 using Win-tab

  • graphics tablet/display tablet/2-in-1 laptop/Android tablet
    ** Windows/Linux/Mac/Android, + version (you’ll find it in Help -> Show system information for bug reports)

Description of the issue (you can include screenshots):
Procedure to reproduce the issue.

  1. Use Eraser (or Pen tip) on canvas window
  2. Move a pointer on Brush panel
  3. Rotate stylus 180degree on Brush panel
  4. Brush Icon selected for Pen tip (or Eraser) is not focused.

If this is the correct behavior, I’m very sorry. However, I wish Brush icon to switch according to Pen tip/Eraser detected. Are there any workaround to overcome this issue?

Hi. Yes, I can confirm one has to hover the canvas for the brush to change between tip and eraser. (not specific to the brush panel) macOS, intuos4 tablet

So the workaround would be to hover the canvas when rotating your pen or use hotkeys.

Personally I use hotkeys with Ten Brushes to switch brush: Configure Krita → Python Plugin Manager → Check Ten Brushes. Then you’ll find it under the menu Tools → Scripts → Ten Brushes.

Or you could use the / key to toggle between last used preset.

Thank you so much!

As you wrote, the solution is rotating stylus when pointer is on canvas window. I already adopted this and is still searching for preferable method. I will try Python script.

Thank you, again! :smiley:
