    Problem with fill into areas drawn in line

    Hi, Can anyone suggest settings to solve the following problem? When I draw a closed shape with any of the line tools and then use the fill tool, I always get a fine white line between the fill and the originally drawn line . I have tried setting paper texture to 0 % depth on fine paper, but makes no difference . I want to be able to draw shapes with the coloured line and fill with the same colour. I've played a bit with settings on the various tools, pencil , marker fine , pen and so on but I can't come up with a solution that works . I am using a 9.5 inch iPad Pro and Apple Pencil . But it makes no difference if I use an ordinary stylus or my fingers .
    Be grateful if anyone has a suggestion. Many thanks. Izzi

    This is exactly the problem we updated the Fill tool in ArtRage 5 to solve, unfortunately (which means it's not in the iPad app). It's a common issue with digital art - there's a nearly invisible border around the edge of your paint smoothing out the edges (anti-aliasing). Without it, everything looks block and pixelated.

    So steps to fix it are:

    - go to the Fill tool settings and turn of anti-alias edge and see what that looks like
    - increase Spread (so it ignores the subtle color change)
    - toggle 'current layer only' so you can fill on the layer below and tidy up manually with the ink pen


    How well Spread & Anti-alias work depends on your image. Spread 10% will tell it to ignore color changes up to 10%, for example, so if you're working with very similar colors, it won't work well. If you have very different colors, it will work very well.

    This is not my signature.

    Go forth and read the tutorials. Also, check out the featured artists!

    Thanks Hannah, I will try all of that.
