I doubt this is an issue that has any solution, but I thought I’d come here to voice an issue I’ve been facing anyway.
I rarely use the oekaki boards anymore, because I always draw digitally using my iPad, which while ChickenPaint does support, is far from optimized for.

I like a good challenge with my art sometimes though, I like to see how far I can get with drawing on programs I am either not accustomed to or aren’t as well optimized for my device. Unfortunately, I think due to the IPadOS update, the oekaki boards are now essentially rendered completely unusable. If I try to zoom in (on the iPad I’d usually have to use the outside of the page or else it would just draw weird zigzags across the screen, and there’s no way to zoom in on the canvas properly without it being far too big or small) it now just thinks I’m drawing when I zoom, and I get stuck making incomplete lines that cannot be undone because the program thinks I am still drawing said line.

Apologies if that made like zero sense, I’m not entirely sure how to explain it.
It’s not a huge deal, I don’t have to use oekaki, I just thought it might be fun to try and use it again.
Hopefully in the future there may be more optimization for mobile devices, but I understand there’s a lot more important things with the program and website that need to be focused on first.

Edit: went to try again just now to make sure it wasn’t just my iPad being weird that day, and while the problem still persists it’s now doing something even weirder. It lags out whenever I try to draw at all, and no matter what size the brush is set to, it always shows up as the smallest setting.

Again, not a huge deal, oekaki isn’t even that optimized in the slightest for this device and I never used it much for that reason, but just something that’s kinda rendered it basically unusable now.
this is signature is a wip lol
Apologies if I don’t respond/immediately respond to trades and PM’s.
Going through a lot of stress right now and might not be able to/want to at the time because of my anxiety.
Please don’t think It’s anything you did, I’m just a big sad stupid dumb dumb head sometimes :’)

Sometimes I go by the name tiny_ii on different websites
I really love Deltarune and Undertale rn hecc yes

I clicked color-in on one of my adoptables, however it will only allow me to edit the drawing and not post anything new. This has resulted in losing the lines for my adoptables with the edits I had made to the lines. Is there any way to fix the oekaki so that it will allow me to post color-ins again?

Edit: I've now also tested it on another section of my adopts and it will not allow me to color-in and post a drawing. It only lets me save as an edit to the drawing.

I've recently rejoined CS and painted an Oekaki or ten since and something caught my eye. I don't know if this is how it's always been or if something's wrong, but currently, anytime I'm using Chickenpaint, the resolution is way off and I have to kind of guess how things are going to look based on the pixel-y image I see. (Here is an example of what I see when drawing anything.) I've tried messing with all of my settings, zooming in and out, and still, nothing has worked. The resolution does appear fine though after I upload it, I'm so confused.

Another question- What are the new folder options I keep seeing when coloring in other people's templates?

I'm having the same problem with the resolution! Any help would be appreciated.

(also, I think the folders are new to ChickenPaint 2.0? I'm using that and that's how I've gotten them)

I am wanting to work on the Oekaki again to see if I could get the pen pressure to work, but I can't seem to find a button to even start? I can only find a button to edit one of my own and not start a new one.

Trying to edit one of my own and the pen tool just moves the canvas for some reason. I'm not holding down a key at all. This is only with my tablet. Currently using firefox as a browser.

I downloaded chrome but I wanted to avoid that, but everything seems to work fine on it. I still don't know how to make a new drawing though. It seems like the new drawing button is missing from "sketches and experiments" but it's there on all other ones.

I can't help with the first two questions, but as for making a new drawing, I can!
go into any oekaki forum and click "new drawing". it should say "Please choose a canvas size for this drawing" along with two options "standard" and "new larger size (50% bigger!). click one, and then oekaki will load.

sketches and experiments, along with the old forums of oekaki, have all been retired in favor of new forums. read more here!

i'm not sure if this thread's being checked much anymore, but it's worth a shot:
i recently factory reset my computer for unrelated reasons & thought it'd be a good opportunity to switch from chrome to firefox. however, despite just having set up my tablet (& confirming that it's set up correctly by testing it in other programs like clip studio paint), i'm having a strange issue.
if pen pressure is enabled for any option (brush size, opacity, or scattering), it'll stay stuck at the lowest possible value for that option. for example, if the "brush size" is set to 13 & i don't have pen pressure enabled for it, the brush is 13 pixels big, but if i enable pen pressure, it'll be stuck at 1. the pressure sensitivity/etc in clip studio paint works perfectly normally, so it seems to be a problem with oekaki?

i installed chrome to test it, and it works normally in chrome. but i would really like to get it to work in firefox, because i would really like to not have to use chrome ever again let alone switch over just for oekaki drawings lol :')

i'm using a surface pro 4 with windows 10
