Thread: Can no longer draw while canvas is flipped horizontally or vertically

    Can no longer draw while canvas is flipped horizontally or vertically

    Hi All.

    I've just updated to version 5.0.6 and I can no longer pan, zoom or draw while the screen is flipped (via the 'H' or 'V' keys).

    Working while the canvas is flipped is something I use a lot in my workflow, so I'm hoping this feature has simply been turned off by default rather than removed, and that some kind soul can tell me which settings I need to diddle with in order to turn it back on.

    Thanks in advance.

    The Transform tool allows flipping.

    Oh God of homeless things, look down
    And try to ease the way
    Of all the little weary paws
    That walk the world

    I'm afraid it was removed intentionally. It was never supposed to work that way, and apparently caused a lot of background issues.

    Thanks for the quick replies.

    I'm a little disappointed to hear that it's been removed, as it made directional hatching and correcting perspectives quick and easy, although I obviously understand that software stability has to take preference. Could I humbly ask the dev team to look at ways of re-implementing it in a future release?

    It's on the suggestions list, but it was never intentionally added, it only stuck around this long because nobody ever reported it as a bug. There are a lot of issues with the fact it worked at all, so there may not be a good way to re-add it. But we will certainly be considering it for the future.

    Hello Infinatepixel,
    Perhaps my post in another thread might be of help as a workaround for you:
    Also my last post in that thread explains why using the transform tool always flips my paintings around the true centre of the canvas:

    Thanks for the tip markw, that worked a treat.

    I've gotten so used to my tablet layout that I forget I can alter the keybinds on it. One of the lesser used function is now set to transform all
