Sorry that function's being problematic. A couple of things:
What version of the app and iOS are you using? And which iPad?
Also, if you like to uninstall/reinstall the app, first check that your work has synced to Creative Cloud. You can do that by logging-in, with your Adobe ID, to http://assets.adobe.com (My Assets - Mobile Creations - Sketch). If all your work, including your current project, is up-to-date there, you're safe to uninstall and reinstall the app.
But let me know what versions you're using.
Thank you for replying so quickly! I have the iPad Mini 3: Version 9.3.1
and the App version is 3.3.1
I will double check to be 100% sure that my projects are backed up on the CC before I try the reinstall. I will let you know if that helps!
I haven't heard any other comments about the watercolor brush lagging in this version of Sketch but I can certainly check with the product team if you continue to have trouble after reinstalling, so let me know.
You might, after checking on your work, just try a force-quit of the app, a device restart, then a relaunch. Sometimes that's all it takes. But... I still like to make sure work is synced before doing that.
Hello, so I backed up my sketches and reinstalled the app. It was working fine for the first few strokes but then went back to lagging really bad. Even changing the size/flow is very slow. I am actually begining to think that it is the actual sketch file. I went to a different project and there was no lag. Do you think I should just save the file seperately and just paint over it (like flattening in Photoshop)? I'm not too sure how that would work either.
If you're going to import it as a a photo layer, which, I think, is what you're saying, just make sure you preserve your original art so that you have it to go back to if you want to. And, while we're on THAT topic, would you mind sharing the file with me (I wanted to pass it along to one of our engineers who's interested to see the art that could be causing the lag you're describing). It's a pretty easy process if you're okay with doing it.
These are the steps:
Sign in to https://assets.adobe.com/ with your Adobe ID (you went there to check on your files)
Navigate to Assets/Files/Mobile Creations/Sketch and select the project to share
Click on Share/Send Link, then the button Create Public Link
Then, send the link to me at susang at adobe dot com
Yes of course. I just sent the file to you. Incase it sends all of the sketches, it is the one with the girl and kitty.
Just got it. And, yep, it actually sends the entire project. I'll send this to the engineer and drop you a note when I hear back from him.
Thank you! I really appreciate you for helping me figure this out!
