The brushes panel is very basic in Affinity Photo with scant no, capabilities for organisation.

Once the brushes are imported you cannot move them to another category - which in reality is a brush set, nor can you rearrange the categories nor sort them by name or size. You can move the individual brushes by dragging them up or down within the category but that's it.

I think the word category is misleading because you cannot have several brush sub-sets within a category called watercolour brushes, a category only stores individual brushes not sub-sets of brushes.

Me confused?

Brushes can be moved or copied to any other category.

Or did you mean something else?

Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be worried about.

I meant en masse, not individually, it would get very tedious very quickly moving brushes one by one, I honestly cannot see the logic nor the reason for such a limited panel, and to only include a method for moving a single brush is baffling. I think it's possibly because there is no hierarchy so the only option you have is to move a brush from a category to a category, even then it seems a waste of time to do that.

To me a category is a group of brush subsets not a group of individual brushes

  • Watercolour Brushes <-- category
    • Wet brushes <-- subset
      • wet brush 1 <-- brush
      • wet brush 2
    • Dry brushes <-- subset
      • dry brush 1 <-- brush
      • dry brush 2
