Hey guys,

Here's link to a gif: ... o.gif?dl=0

Also how do I create a pixel perfect eraser?

Regarding the GIF, it's because you have the opacity of the eraser set to 0%. Push that back up to 100% and it should work fine.

And about pixel-perfect eraser. It's a feature that I missed in the original Pixelmator, too. My work-around is to create a mask on the layer and paint on the mask with a black pixel-brush. You can always merge the mask when you're done.

Hope this helps.

Same issue here - not being able to delete pixels without the annoying anti-aliasing messing up nearby pixels is a real problem. I'll have to keep using regular Pixelmator for a lot of my work, easier to use for what I need anyway.

Well... that was a well-timed comment. Pixelmator Pro 1.2, which came out today has an eraser mode in the Pixel Paint tool.

Nope. Opacity set to 100%. There's something wrong with Pixelmator every time I open it.
