    Painter X - problem of video refresh with iMac 27

    Hi, I've switched from Windows to Mac but now when I use Painter X and I do some fast brush strokes I can see the shape of some of them on the image (see attached image).

    This is very annoying because it cover some part of the painting and the only thing I can do to let them disappear is to paint over them or turn of the level I'm painting in and then turn it on again.

    Do you have any advice on how to solve this problem?

    Thank you very much.

    it's a very old and a very frequent painter bug;
    those cursor marks go away if you quickly zoom in/out, or make any other operation that will make a screen redraw.
    For me, switching the tool from brush to eraser (hotkeys B and N respectively) and back did the trick, same thing with hitting tab twice to hide and show menus and panels.

    alternatively, disable any kind of brush ghosting, it also worked for me.

    This happens to me as well. I found that if you use the keyboard shortcut for rotating the canvas, I believe that if you double click the canvas very rapidly (to recenter the image while in rotation mode) it will get rid of all of these marks. This works pretty quick to get rid of the lines.

    happens the same to me on a pc, the best way to clear them, its to press caps so the menus dissapears and press it again, and wuaaala refreshed with no need to paint or switch tools.
    There are no such things as bad art, just tight deadlines.
