Hi! I've had this problem for every update after ver. 2.2.10, where my brush strokes lag behind slowly and then jump to the pen tip when I lift my pen back up. It is extremely annoying and hard to get work done, and not only does it do that but the stroke will just jump to any area near my pen tip when I lift my pen up. I really want to use their amazing new features, but I've had to reinstall ver. 2.2.10 many times because when I tried the new updates each recent update had the same problem.

I'm sorry if I didn't describe the problem well, it's a little hard to explain. My brush strokes just don't line up with what I did with my pen.

Hello, I recently had a problem with FireAlpaca

In the last few weeks he has not wanted to save the mdp format drawings with a "could not save" or something like that. Since last week when doing something common like moving a layer it sticks and then closes causing me to lose my drawings


What could it be? I suspect it is because my computer is old but I'm not sure. Sorry for my bad english

Soo, I got a photoshop file from someone but when I try to open it, all layers appear blank. They are there and are named, but the layers have nothing on it! What goes wrong? xD

Hi. I want to ask if it's possible to install Fonts to Alpaca? One person said that i can install fonts if the program allows it. Another person said that i can install fonts in any program.

Beginneratart's avatar
It should be! As long as you've installed the font into your computer's font book, you should be able to access it (though you may need to restart the program first if it was open when you installed the font).

Thanks for the answer.

Sorry: where are you finding these features? Is this for the mobile or desktop version of FireAlpaca?
uncle808us's avatar

On the Mac desktop I did not know there was a Fire Alpaca mobil version. Do you medibang? Under the layers window. (right click on a layer.)

Here

Ah, apologies! I haven't drawn in quite a while. Sorry for the late reply as well. To be honest, I'm not sure what that does. You can always look around google or experiment yourself.

What's new in 2.2.4?

Beginneratart's avatar
You can check it on FireAlpaca's website. Though we are a group dedicated to the program, we are in no ways affiliated FireAlpaca or officially represent them.

I found the information it is on the download page not the main page.

Thanks.

I did not see any info about what's new. Maybe I don't know where to look or I over looked it. I'll look again. Thanks

A hyperlink to the updates or a summary of it usually appears when opening the program. The link says something along the lines of "See what's new". Maybe you can try that. You're welcome.

For My first question.

Is there anyway to change the pivot point in rotation transform?

Thank you for any and all help.

Beginneratart's avatar
Yes, if I'm not mistaken. The top bar should have a checkbox called 'select from centre' somewhere on the right. 
uncle808us's avatar

I get that choice when using the select tool.

But not the transform I see nothing that would let me change the point at which the objects rotates.

Beginneratart's avatar
Unfortunately, I don't think there is a way to change this. Everything will rotate from its centre. Sorry!
uncle808us's avatar

I can live with that. Thank you for you time and help.
