About Eraser Presets

Once you have found the correct settings for your eraser, you might want to reuse it throughout your project for consistency. You can do that by creating and using eraser presets.

Harmony comes preloaded with a few eraser presets which you can select from the Tool Properties view. It is also possible to create your own eraser presets by configuring your eraser then saving it as a preset.

Like eraser tips and paper textures, eraser presets are saved in your preferences. You can also export your eraser presets into an .xml file, and import them on a different workstation, allowing you to share your eraser presets between the different people collaborating on your project.

  • Eraser presets are not to be confused with eraser tips and paper textures. Eraser tips and paper textures are one of the many properties of an eraser, whereas an eraser preset contains all the properties of a brush.
  • Eraser presets for vector layers and for bitmap layers are separate. An eraser preset created while working on a vector layer cannot be used when working on a bitmap layer, and vice versa.
