    On a tablet computer, I can’t use the brush or eraser tools with the mouse (or touchscreen) on a bitmap layer.
    Is this a design feature (use the pen), or is there a setting somewhere I have missed?

    Other bitmap layer tools work.
    Mouse and touch work fine with the vector pen on a vector layer.

    Never mind. A computer restart fixed the problem, whatever was causing it.

    Actually you do need tablet pen for the brush tool and the vector pen tool. The mouse works if you don’t have a tablet or if you have a tablet but didn’t use the tablet pen. After you use the tablet pen, the mouse no longer works with these two tools. It is a bit strange yes, but this was done to fix issues with tablet drivers I got. (Not all tablet signals were received by application and in some situation I couldn’t tell if the pressing signal comes from the mouse or from the tablet pen, which is needed for getting the correct pressure).

    Thank you for clarifying the situation!

    Now that I understand it, the behaviour is predictable – I can work with that.

    Not that I am happy with the current solution. Will look more if I can get a better way…

    Ok, I think I solved this. The mouse now works whenever used. Will be in the next update.
