I have been using the brush creation window recently much more and I noticed interacting with it is pretty hard by the simple fact some of the widgets are tiny.
- First of all the window to edit brushes is rather small and very keen to be temporary. This is one of those things that has always puzzled me. Would it not make more sense if it had its own existence as a window so you could rescale the window? Also being locked to the widget I don’t feel it to be too necessary for a user, if anything it feels more of a restriction I might be wrong here but it is how I feel towards the window over all. Also if this was a docker it would not be something I would say no too.
Now for the meat and potatoes, widget size.
Brush sample preview - I love the sample but considering the total size of the window it feels small overall. I would consider it taking the full header. Moving the buttons of the header to be under it. Also it would be cool perhaps some reference to the graphic of the amount of pressure or opacity or flow being applied on the sample being bigger would allow to display such information too being similar to the graphs for the inputs below. Also changes to the settings can’t be seen as well for being such a tiny stroke.
Brush tip smoothness graph - this one is problematic in my opinion. It is too small. A couple of pixels to the side and the brush starts doing really different things visually. The thing that puzzles me the most is that the window has even free space considering it has a fixed size and it is not being used for no reason. Also fixing this should not be too hard I assume. The others points are kinda meh to do or not but this would be the one I give more attention to mind and it is also the easiest to fix if I am looking at this right.
Well that is my silly FR.
