The original editor cut my question off: I have used Adobe Draw since they forced us to move from Ideas. I have grown used to it and I like it for the most part (especially now that I can name my layers). I recently bought the iPad Pro with Apple Pencil and they work well with the app... Except when I try to fill objects. It is very inconsistent. It may fill right away or it may take a few long presses, or it may not work at all. Am I missing something?

Sorry about the fill trouble. A couple of things:
* Definitely be sure that the fill area is entirely closed; shapes in Draw will not fill even if there's a microscopic gap in the outline.
* And, filling can be slow in a complicated drawing (although, you shouldn't have to cancel out because it's taking so long). One thing that might help: Filling only considers the current layer, so if you limit the complexity of each layer that should cut down on the required fill-time.
Let me know if that helps.
i appreciate the answer. I was aware of most of those things, but sometimes it seems it will falter for no reason for 4 times and work the fifth. Or not at all. Anyway, still a cool program and I will keep using it, as long as I don't get frustrated.
The information I've gotten from one of our engineers is that fill is a much more complicated process (for software) than people believe it to be. That said, I know the team is always trying to improve it, so I'll pass these comments on to them.
