Selected Test Results

What works

  • All brushes and tools work as expected
  • Fonts installed in the OS are detected normally
  • No problem with saving images
  • Like in Windows, this too can't check for any updates

What does not

  • Intro pop-up window on first opening of the program will only show blank screen, probably due to not being able to connect to any server from Autodesk
  • Sketchbook extras won't load also so it's impossible to download any community brushes
  • Brush palette is always on top and won't disappear when switching to other programs unless you close the Sketchbook program. I haven't tested if other floating windows have this problem. So far, I can confirm that the following disappears normally upon switching windows:
    • Toolbar (the top bar below the menu)
    • Lagoon
    • the 2 pucks
    • Layer Editor
  • Alt-tabbing shows the floating windows as individual windows separate from the program so if you're planning to switch windows while sketching, better use your mouse instead


What was not tested

  • Drawing using a tablet or device with touchscreen
  • Canvas rotation (I don't have a touchscreen)

Hardware tested


  • GPU: AMD
  • Driver: unknown

Additional Comments

I didn't use any workarounds to install the program. Just click the installer and the install will proceed as normal. After that, open the program. A pop-up window which should show the intro of the program won't load since the program can't connect to any server. Just close that window then sketch away.
