Join John Derry for an in-depth discussion in this video Troubleshooting when a brush won't paint, part of Painter 2017 Essential Training.
- [Instructor] Painter is a very complex application…due to the fact that it has multiple brush engines…within it.…If I open up the brush palette, you can see right away…that there are just rows and rows of tabs…that you can open up that are specific…to the various brush engines within Painter.…As a result, things can happen that sometimes…for unknown reasons your brush just won't paint…on your image and you can't figure it out.…So, what I've done to help alleviate that a bit…is I've created a PDF file and you're going to find it…within your Chapter Five folder right here.…
