Both dots and squares don't work in stroke mode.


Both gradient and texture don't work in fill mode.

Something must have went wrong after adding the vertex color feature.

Seems you are right. I've just tested it on windows platform and it works with no issues.

Probably it is a Mac only bug?

@guzu (guzu) can you test in a second Mac machine? maybe is configuration/driver problem.

Unfortunately, it is the only Mac device I have. And Mac doesn't have much options to play with the drivers like in windows and linux.

I've changed something in the task. Blender 2.82 had a bug of disappearing grease pencil strokes, so the version that I was actually using is 2.83 Alpha and it had no issues.

I think it effects only on OSX system with Intel GPU. On my Macbook(Intel GPU, Catalina, 2012) Grease Pencil with dots, gradients (T75061) and texture doesn't work.

hey, there is one more problem while inserting texture to the material for GP, the blending option does not work properly, it worked fine in 2.82 as it did not have the blending option. i saw a tutorial in which blending option was working fine, i guess he was using windows but in mac we have this issue.
