There just might be a bright side to almost anything after all, sometimes you just have to use a bigger magnifying glass to see it!

Noticed another deviation from the IDE.
In the IDE you can actually see the brush you use, on mobile you don't see it.
But it does work, meaning you can draw and erase.
I added it to the bug report.

I'm not sure that's possible since there's no cursor.

Is the image not the cursor then?
Or am i misinterpreting that?

A cursor is an OS function that displays a persistent image. Under normal use, mobile doesn't support the hooks to draw a cursor at all. Where would it be on screen when the user is not touching it?

The one exception, at least on Android, is when a Bluetooth mouse is connected. In that case the OS does implement desktop mouse behavior. It can do that because a mouse always has a persistent screen location.

The brushes you installed will probably show up if you attach a Bluetooth mouse.

Thanks Jacque for the explanation.

Indeed you're correct, i have an Odroid C2 with android on it as a mediaplayer for my daughter and it has also a blue tooth mouse attached and has indeed an arrow as cursor.

Maybe there is a trick to force it to display the cursor when touched.
Some other touch based drawing programs (java)(windows/mac) also show the cursor (like a circle when erasing) but only when touched.

I had thought about that but I haven't ever seen an example on my phone. Maybe the team will respond in your bug report. It would be a nice thing to implement.

In Android under Developer Options, you can enable Visual Feedback for touch movements.A little circle.
Also only visible when touched.
So it would be something like that.
