What's New

Now that Procreate 5 has been born and is out in the wild, it's time to deliver the afterbirth of life-giving bug fixes and improvements.

* The annoying snap while using colors is no more
* Importing CMYK PSDs with transparency got a whole lot more transparent
* Rotating and inverting grains now works for Texturized grains as well
* If you had backed up your swatches from Procreate 4 and tried to reimport them you received squat
* Have no fear moving from Brush Studio straight to Gallery. The bug has been vanquished
* Background colour is now cool with you jumping back to Gallery
* Combine modes should remain same for primary and secondary brush (was showing normal and not updating for secondary)
* Straya and Blighty localisations got some attention
* Full screen wasn't particularly full screen with the painting toolbar hanging around, and also wouldn't return automatically. lol.
* Back by popular demand, larger iPads now display all Liquify options and settings
* Copying and Pasting while the Color Companion is open no longer harms your ability to Transform
* Just because you reset your custom brush didn't necessarily mean you wanted to remove all your author information
* Smudging with symmetry now smudges with symmetry
* Custom brushes in the QuickMenu were replaced with Round Brush if you reset them
* Fixed a crash when setting a Background Color
* Gallery Preview got a good kick in the diaper to make it go faster
* For pixel art people, we've fixed 1px brushes so that they paint at 1px
* Lots of little ABR support improvements
* Some lovely improvements to stroke end taper
* Brush spacing is now the same as it was in Procreate 4

We haven't cut the umbilical cord on Procreate 5 just yet. Still a few more little surprises and bug fixes to come.
