  1. Being able to customize shortcuts would be incredibly useful, but if that is not posible then a Mixer brush shortcut would be nice, I use the Mixer brush quite often, and I also use the eye dropper as often, however having a shortcut for the eye dropper seems redundant to me, as I have to touch the screen again for the mixer brush, so I had an idea

    Have the Alt/Option key change the shortcut thing

    B : Brush

    Alt+B : Pixel Brush

    Alt+B * 2 : Mixer Brush

    Alt+B * 3 : Colour replacement Brush


    And if the "- * 2" or "- * 3" cant be coded in, lets instead use the other keys we have, "alt + shift + [key]", "alt + ctrl + [key]", "shift + ctrl + [key]"


    Thank you

    I don’t think the Affinity apps can read Procreate’s *.brush format. Changing the extension doesn’t change the internal format of the file, and zipping the file merely creates a compressed archive of the contents.


    But I managed to add it another way

    Despite not looking pretty (and time consuming if you are trying to import all the Paraline Brush set, or any brush set), you could do this

    Take a screenshot in the brush for menu (procreate), open it in AP,     Crop it so that there is only the brush shape,     Add a contrast filter and invert the image colours(to black),     Export it as an image,    and then add it as an intensity brush, and then add the settings for the brush, for example, to make this nebula brush look like it is really bright it is needed to change the blending mode to "add" 

    Looks close enough

    Have you tried renaming the file from ".brush" to ".afbrush"

    If it is a brushset maybe ".afbrushes"

    Edit--Just tried it and it didnt work

    I just found out that procreate exports brushes as    .brush  file.

    Hi @ibrahimaljada,

    Welcome to the forums. 

    What file type is it? Have you tried to save that file to the local storage and then import it?




    The brushes (individually) save as .brush, while the group of brushes save as .brushset, I tried importing them on those file types, aswell as .abr and .afbrushes but it doesnt work, it still shows dimmed in both dropbox and local storage


    Edit-- I also tried zipping the files, didnt work

  4. I used to do pixel art animation with the app, so I used the arrow keys a lot to move pixels for the animation as it makes it easier to move, when I updated the app I was unable of using the arrow keys to move or transform the object, please bring it back.


    Also I would like to see a ruler tool or something like that.
