Thank you for your video, @Multi4G! For opacity, is there a way to have multiple strokes with a low opacity (say, 25%) behave as if they were only one continuous stroke? Sometimes I will be colouring in a drawing and I will want to keep a consistent opacity for my brush strokes. This way I can change the opacity of my brush on the fly to achieve control over a wide range of opacities rather than being forced to just draw at 100% opacity and move the layer's entire opacity down to, for example, 50% to achieve a consistent shading experience.

A different program I've used has called this kind of operation a "marker style blending option".
