Square bracket stroke width adjustment expanded functionality

Recommended Posts

Apps: All
Platforms: Windows, macOS and iPad

In Version 2 we added the use of square brackets to increase and decrease stroke weight on the fly in the pen, pencil and move tools. By request we have now activated this while in any of the shape tools, as well as the node tool. In the case of the node tool square brackets will only change stroke weight if you do not have a node selection (in which case square brackets adopts previous behaviour of selecting next / previous node).

thank you. That is very useful.

One additional thing regarding stroke width shortcuts. When the stroke is 0 pt width (often by default), the right bracket shortcut doesn't seem to work. It starts working from 0.1 pt onward. Looks like the shortcut is multiplicative (adds/removes a percentage of current value), maybe it's the reason it doesn't work with 0 pt, just guessing

It would be great if this limitation could be removed, unless there is a good reason for it

Seconding this request. Really useful, but with this limitation it is not so useful "right away", without additional toolbar clicks
