    For any lengthy text I use a word processor as I find they are quicker and have more functions. I save the file, or multiple files, and then bring it into Publisher. This can be handy if you are working for a client or department and someone wants to amend the text. Send them the text file and then re-flow when returned. It’s REALLY handy if you faf things up, as we all have. You won’t have to retype it again.

    Hi @im140.6,
    Sorry but I'm still confused. Firstly are you using a layer mask? it looks like it but you didn't explain that in the original post but not  a problem. 
    I think you are wanting a large bush with 0% hardness to behave the same as a small one with 0% hardness. That won't happen.
    Let's pretend that if you set hardness at 0% the soft edge, or feather, it is 10% of the total brush size. So, a large brush of 4000px would have a soft edge of 400px which you could easily see. If you then change the brush size to 20px the soft edge would still be 10% therefore 2px which you would not see so it looks like a 100% hard brush.
    After studying your sceen shots, thank you, I believe you are changing the background with a gradient light and or a blur, which you have put on a layer below and then add a mask to the top layer and 'paint' in the new background. Hope I'm right on this. Suggestion: Start around the dogs, not the sky and trees.  Start with 1000px 0% hardness brush and adjust as required. It's a bit of trial and error. When you happy with the result around the dogs finish the rest off with a brush 100% hardness, size to suit. If I am right you could also try putting the background to the top, masking that and 'paint' in the dogs. it may be easier.
    Masking round fur can be blinking difficult so you may want to try 'cutting' the dogs out using the Selection Brush Tool and the Refine facility then put them on a layer(s) on their own on the top.
    HTH, sorry if I got it all wrong.

    I’m not sure the best place to post this, so this will do. I do feel it would be beneficial to everyone if this forum was split into three. Photo, Publisher and Designer. As the forum gets bigger it can take ages to trawl through to a point of despondency. The titles that posters use tend to be a bit meaningless and we have to open and read the whole post. If I was looking for an answer regarding AP I would look in that forum. It would probably help posters get an answer quicker.
    What do others think?

    Hi im140.6,
    Welcome to Affinity forum.
    I was a bit confused by your explaination and I am also unsure what you are trying to achieve but I hope I have it.
    If you set the hardness of a brush at 0% that is the softest and 100% is the hardness. The softer the brush, the further it will 'fade'. So if you want an edge with a sharp defined edge use 100%.
    Now to the bit as to why it looks harder when using a small brush. It's to do with the 'feather' or softness as a  percentage of the brush stroke. If you set the hardness to 0% and brush to 2000px you will see the feathered edge but if the brush size is 80px it looks solid.
    Hope this makes sense. Sorry if it doesn't
