Eraser Tool Options
When you select the Eraser tool, its properties and options appear in the Tool Properties view.
This is where you set the minimum and maximum sizes of your drawing tool which will produce the thick and thin effect on your stroke. This works with the pressure sensitivity of a pen tablet.
|‣||Maximum and Minimum Size: Defines the maximum and minimum width of the stroke.|
|‣||Smoothing: Defines the number of control points added to the centre line.|
Eraser presets are created by saving the properties of the current eraser to a new preset, which you can reuse for repeated tasks. You can create as many eraser presets as you need—see Erasing Parts of a Drawing.
The Eraser tool uses its own preset list, separated from the Brush tool. Toon Boom Harmony provides a variety of eraser styles and allows you to create and save your own. It is a good idea to create and save eraser with precise sizes and parameters to draw and design.
Since Harmony lets you draw with textured lines and create feathered edges on them, you may also want to erase with smooth edges instead of the solid vector based eraser. The Eraser Blur Parameters allow you to adjust the smoothness of your eraser for the textured lines—see How to erase textured lines
The Apply to Line and Colour Art option uses the concept of Line Art and Colour Art layers. Use this option to apply an action such as selecting or resizing a drawing on both Line Art and Colour Art layers, as well as the Overlay and Underlay layers.
Use the Tip Style option to customize the tip of the pencil line you are cutting.
