Show brush names permanently

Recommended Posts



I have just a small question (Affinity Designer): 

Is there any way to show the brush names permanently inside the preview area (instead of the tooltip)? 


Right now I have to mouse over all of them to find a brush..


Thank you!

Hey Maria, welcome to the Affinity Forums.

Unfortunately this isn't possible at the moment. It has been requested that we implement a list view or a breadcrumb trail (to inform you which brushes you have recently used for the current project) so hopefully at some point we could see this. 


The only workaround (and I use that term loosely) is to create your own category of favourite brushes. At least that way you won't have to wade through that many to find the one you want.

Thank you, Chris!


A list view or a breadcrumb trail would be great. I really love Affinity Designer and it would be great to have something like this in the future.


Until then I will create my own categories of favourite brushes to find them quicker.
