I got this software as a bundle and have been using it for five years. Love it on the laptop, not a huge fan with a drawing tablet, and hate the way it works on the phone. I have a Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, which comes with a stylus. After some trial and error, I upgraded my subscription to access different drawing settings, but turns out I paid $2 more for the exact same thing. Don't know why the pen pressure is only usable during the trial period and completely inaccessible when paid.

The drawing aspect is fine. The app tricks you into a false sense of security about your artwork being backed up (it probably isn't so be careful). I had problems with the downloaded pens not staying. I can't find any information on how to fix it. OK so I go through the steps to figure it out myself. I delete and re-download the app and all of my artwork is gone......because your profile isnt enough, you HAVE to have it backed up to your cloud, thanks for making that known.

i just got clipstudio on my computer ( chromebook) and it wont even open..i tried looking for solutions but nothing has worked. I dont know whats going on with it but i hope they can fix it soon. There isnt alot of art apps or programs ( that are decent or good ) for chromebook an i had high hopes , which quickly plummeted when i clicked on it and it showed a black screen then closed out of itself and thats all it does when you click on it..

What's new

・The home page on the smartphone app has been redesigned. You will be able to create canvases and resume existing projects straight away, as well as access the latest news more easily.
・The Eyedropper tool has been redesigned so that the current and new drawing colors appear in a circle around the selected area as you drag. The area around the cursor is also enlarged and shown inside the circle so you can easily pick colors.
