Matias Mendiola (mendio) added a comment to D6046: UI: Replace CROSS by DOT cursor.

I would like to keep the cross cursor in sculpt mode. It is not an issue with screen pen tablets, but it can be confusing with regular tablets. During a stroke, the cursor preview shows the last updated step position, so it can lag way behind the mouse.

  1. when you create a new Grease Pencil object there is no materials in the list and all the strokes are using the default material, if you create a new material all the strokes using the default material should be linked with this new first created material.
Aug 29 2019, 5:23 PM · Grease Pencil
Matias Mendiola (mendio) added a reviewer for D5625: GPencil: Use default material when slot material is empty: Daniel Martinez Lara (pepeland).

I have fixed the review comment and set the default color to black.
About default color in black I have a totally opposite opinion. When you are drawing with GPencil, the more logic color to use is black, so if you add more colors(materials) to your drawing and you delete one of them and the "wrong" strokes get black, you cannot see it in the viewport. The second reason is the list of materials in meshes are usually shorter than GPencil list of materials, so it's easy to don't see the wrong material in the list. My understanding is Blender 2.80 tries to focus all work in the viewport and here we are forcing the user to look at the material panel (not visible in full screen drawing mode).
About default color pink when you add a blank grease pencil, really drawing without adding a material is a mistake and the system "would" warning about that. In mesh the material is used for rendering, but in GPencil, the material is used to manage the scene with a lot of operator that don't exist in meshes... if we leave the users to make drawings without materials, we encourage them to do the things in the wrong way. IMHO, the logic would be to show pink as a notice of "you are missing something important".
Of course, when I talk of pink color, this could be changed to anything with high contrast in drawings, but for me Black is the worst of the options.

Aug 29 2019, 4:44 PM · Grease Pencil
D5625: GPencil: Use default material when slot material is empty now requires changes to proceed.

My main concern with this solution is that when you add a Blank Grease Pencil object, you are drawing with a pink material by default
In my opinion the default material should be Black for Grease Pencil.

Matias Mendiola (mendio) added a comment to D5615: GPencil: Display only stroke lines when material is NULL.

I really don't like this approach. Pink in Blender means missing texture, we should not add another meaning for that.
What is wrong with following Blender default behaviour for mesh objects (i.e., to have a default material used instead)?

Matias Mendiola (mendio) added a comment to D5615: GPencil: Display only stroke lines when material is NULL.

The lines are editable, but the edit points are not visible. While drawing, the lines are not visible because they are incompatible with the fast drawing.
I'm not sure we must work in these areas... if you have something in pink lines, you must fix it... not follow working with the damaged material. Make all functions and modules work with these pink lines would add more overhead to the drawing engine for something that it does not worth it.
The solution to create a material is also a bad solution because the user will remove a material and suddenly would appear a new one created automatically.

Aug 28 2019, 8:39 PM
Matias Mendiola (mendio) added a comment to D5615: GPencil: Display only stroke lines when material is NULL.

In the proposed solution the line without material is not editable in Edit Mode, and also it disappear while drawing in Draw Mode.
Is this intentional or could be improved?

I don't see the Interpolation operator in the menu redundant, it is just another way to reach the tool and also give more discoverability of the operator shortcut (Many tools in Blender are also on menus, toolbar or header, just think of Move, Rotate, Scale)
There is also no reason to force the user/artist to change to edit mode for interpolate strokes, when the tool works perfectly in drawing mode too. It would only slow down the 2D animation workflow.
