    Adding features to the eraser

    It would be great to have a more complete and versatile eraser. In Photoshop for instance you can use any brush for the eraser and it's an immensely useful feature.

    I think a nice solution would be to have :

    real-world presets : based on the existing pressure and softness settings but also adding basic shape control, so that we could imitate common eraser, kneaded eraser, soft vinyl erasers, etc

    and also

    using any tool (or at least stickers) as erasers : maybe adding a "turn into eraser" option to the settings panel of various tools

    The eraser can be a valuable drawing tool and really improve the creative process in many ways

    Ditto for needing a better eraser. The main thing that is bugging me is the directionality feature. I really want to be able to turn this off and have just a basic round directionless eraser. Pleeeeeease m(_ _)m

    Please add my vote for a more versatile eraser

    Agreed. I think the Stencils are great, and add certain possibilities that are difficult to do in other programs, but for an art program that aims to emulate the process of really painting and drawing, Artage should really feature a more sophisticated Eraser tool that allows for better textural effects.

    So...is it available now (artrage4?) It would be verrrrrry useful for lineless artwork...being able to make textured outlines with the eraser would be awesome!
