Wacom Erase setting to work for all tooltypes

Post by Peter Wassink » 15 Mar 2018, 12:50

The wacom erase setting on the penswitch works perfectly in tvpaint.
i'm refering to choosing the erase option on the wacompenswitch in the wacom driver software.
Within TVPaint this gives you a toggle for a different toolchoice and setting for each drawingmode type.

And it works for :
One point dot
Stroke.
Dot stroke
Line

However....
i would like it to also work for other functions like the freehand fill and the paintbucket.

What is this option and where can it be found in the Wacom driver software...? Can you post a screenshot?

I think he means setting the Wacom pen button to Right-Click , which activates Erase mode when pressed , but when released returns to the previous drawing mode. This works for stroke, line, dot stroke, one point dot , but he is requesting that the Right-Click to enable Erase mode would also work for freehand fill and paint bucket.

So it's just the right click function for the pen button.
That's so far off from...

I don't know ... perhaps I don't understand what Peter is referring to ?

Maybe it is this ? --

I think both your suggestions make sense, David. :) (And thanks, btw)
It was Peter's confusing post that I was commenting on.

Mmmmh...are you calling my post confusing?
I used two whole sentences to explain exactly what i meant and you still managed to misread... :P

i was indeed referring to what you see in Davids second screenshot.
