So I've recently encountered a problem where I'm unable to rotate brushes a full 360 degrees

This is making it impossible to rotate my brushes fully around since they rotate only 180 degrees

Is this a bug or am i missing something ?

Try this setting (with the General tab setting for Rotation at 0 (zero)). You may want something other than Direction set.

I found out, if you press:  cmd + both mouse buttons at the same time.  you can change between the "width" , the perspective and the rotation of the brush.    Yu can rotate the brush 360°

Hopefully I could explane it good enough in english (its not my mother tongue) ^^

I just wonder why the limitation ? and was it always a thing ?

No idea.  I reported it HERE in 2016, but they stuck with 50%.

Although the slider only goes up to 50%, it's possible to manually type a value greater than 50% in the box.  It's also now possible to use the left and right arrow keys on the keyboard to rotate a brush 360°, which was a useful addition.  In addition, for something like a cloud, it's now possible to save objects as an asset in the 'Assets' panel too.  However, it's still not possible to flip a brush on the X or Y axis though.

Bless your heart mate , thanks for the fix !

I was using like a billion copies all in "erase" mode just to get the effect right
