• Keeping brush size fixed

    From Charlie Roberts@21:1/5 to All on Sat Jan 1 20:06:27 2022
    Is there a way keeping the size of the brush fixed as
    you move between brushes? In my set up of GIMP 2.10
    any change results in a different size, depending on
    which brush to choose to go to.

    This is very irritating when, say, moving between
    brusheds of different hardness.

    Thanks.

    if I right click on the paintbrush group ( P N A K Y )
    all brushes are linked to the brush defaults.
    If the paintbrush is set to 60, changing from brush also results in 60
    for the other brushes in that group.

    I prefer that. I wish I could set my airbrush to very different values
    as my paintbrush and switching between them didn't effect the brush
    settings . I think I have to ungroup the brushes to realize that ( the
    way it was in earlier Gimp versions ). Your problem is my solution :D

    What do P N A K Y stand for? And, what does one

    The way the world is. I find that when doing minor painting, I like
    to vary the hardness to soften the edges by switching to a softer
    brush. As the level of detail is smaller, it would be nice if the
    brush at least stayed the same size instead of blowing up to 51
    again.

    Can you point me towards any material on how one may set the
    defaults and see what the "groups' are?

    thanks

    (P)paintbrush (N)pencil (A)airbrush (K) ink
    (Y) my paintbrsh

    right clcik with your mouse on the groups brush icon and you can
    change your brush in this brush group typing another character
    or easier
    put the mouse pointer on it and wait until the submenu appears and
    type a character to change your brush

    Can't upload a picture to this server to show it to you
    If nothing shows up with your mouse pointer on a brush icon?
    Maybe you use an older version of Gimp as I do (latest)
