Request: Tap+hold selects same brush.
on: June 19, 2018, 05:16:33 AM
Hey congrats on the latest update! Lots of improvements! Thanks for the left handed option! I can finally enjoy full screen mode. :)

One thing I find myself missing a lot (while painting specifically), is the ability to quickly select the same brush I’m using at any given moment as an eraser or smudge tool in order to keep things visually consistent and natural looking.

I know it can already be done, but if you have lots of brushes, going back and forth through brush lists can bring your workflow to a halt.

Procreate has a quick solution to this by tapping and holding the eraser or smudge tool to load up the same brush you currently paint with. It could be something else altogether as long as it can get this job done quicker. It would be greatly appreciated!

I will think about it.
How about adding global setting, for example 'Common brush for all tools'. If enabled - setting brush for one tool would set it also for all others.
What do you think?

That would definitely do the trick!

If the option to toggle it on/off is kept somewhat easily accessible even from the full screen mode, (maybe within the brush editor?) it would be a sweet solution.

One more solution - adding Eraser Mode in Paint tool (available in More... popover), like in legacy ArtStudio. What do you think?

Paint > erase is not necessarily the most common pair. Paint > smudge is used more often.

I think the global common brush toggle sounds like a much better solution.
