    Pencil problem

    I have a problem, when I select pencil it won't work, the lines look like crayon but really thin with somethimes gaps in it- This only happens with one of my paintings but it really bothers me because I use the pencil for all my paintings and I can't get the same smooth lines with other tools- Does anybody know how to fix this?

    Hi Eva

    It sounds as though your pencil is interacting with the canvas texture (this is normal)

    If you wish no texture in the pencil mark try the following:-

    View Menu > Canvas Settings

    Set the 'Roughness' Value = 0

    Try your pencil on the canvas again.

    Hopefully this solves your issue

    There's also the Precise setting for the Pencil Tool itself. With it active, the Pencil doesn't interact with the canvas or layer grains and the Tilt Angle is swapped for a Smoothing setting, to assist with line wobble.

    Nothing is easy to the unwilling.
