  • Thank you for posting your observations, feedback and suggested workarounds for the brush lag after undo issue in Painter 12.1. We are very aware of the issue and the team is working on a hotfix for Painter 12.1 that we expect to have out in the coming few weeks. Other projects are on hold until this is resolved.

    To alleviate brush lag after undo, please consider taking the following steps or workarounds

    Use the eraser tool instead of undo

    Minimize the number of documents you have open in Painter

    Free up as much memory as you can by closing other applications 

    Turn off the high quality display feature 

    As a last resort, save your work and restart Painter

    We do apologize for the inconvenience associated with this performance problem. Thank you again for bringing this issue to the Painter Factory.
