When using the brush tool in Affinity apps I always get very odd brush size increments when using the square bracket ( [ ] ) keys to change the brush size. If I use a 10px brush and use "]" to size it up one increment, it doesn't go to the expected 15px, but rather to 11,5 px. And then, if I press the "[" key to size the brush back down to 10px from 11,5px, it randomly ends up at 9,8px (?). Pressing "]" three times from 9px results in 9px, 10,4px, 11,9px, and 13,7px, instead of the expected 9px, 10px, 15px, and 20px values. I find this a bit strange, as I feel that decimal pixel values for brush sizes make little to no difference, and it's just generally odd that using the square brackets to change brush sizes doesn't just use rounded increments - I hate mentioning Photoshop as a reference example, but if if ain't broke... For instance, using the brackets between the values 1px and 10px should only change the brush size in increments of 1px (1,2,3,4,5px...), anything between 10px and 50px should change in increments of 5px (10, 15, 20, 25, 30px...), anything between 50px and 100px should change in increments of 10px (50, 60, 70, 80, 90px...), anything between 100px and 200px should change in increments of 25px (100, 125, 150, 200px), then 50px, and anything above 300px should change in increments of 100px every time you press the square bracket(s). Is there a significance to these weird, decimal pixel increment values? If so, is there a way to change it back to something more normal/user friendly?
Hi evereryone, Few questions about AP that bothers me for quite some time. Firstly, shortcuts. It seems like by default numbers are set to change the opacity of layer and brush. I would like to change it, but I can't find that shortcuts in the preferences. I want to set decrease/increase size brush to 1 and 2 respectively (it's just how I used to work in different software, it's easy for my workflow). Even though AP allows me to set those numbers in shortcuts, it still changes the opacity of brush instead of it's size. Is there some workaround for that? Secondly, more annoying is that decrease and increase size brush have some strange jump sizes. I would like it to change by 1px (especially when i am working with small brushes 2-6px range), but it jumps by 0.6 or 0.4 or 0.5 every time different. If i start with 4px size and then decrease it and increase I can't even go back to the original 4px. It's always 4.3 or 4.2 or 4.5 etc. Very frustrating Is there a way to set the decrease/increase size increments by 1px all the time ? Lastly, is there a way to keep brush cursor a small circle instead of cross when using small brushes. It's changing to cross when the brush is small and i dont really like it. Thank you.
