- Fixed a bug that causes the app crash when you reorder custom brushes in the Brush window or favorite gradations in the Gradation Map filter.
- Fixed a bug where the app may crash if multiple alert boxes are displayed at the same time.

- Fixed a bug of the "Reordering artworks" feature where the artwork you are holding is displayed away from the position of your finger if you have been touching the display with two fingers and touched up one finger.
