Ello, first time here on KA. hopefully im not posting things that have already been discussed …
Not all tablets support tilt direction, so I believe anyone using a flat brush would benefit from a on-the-go, on canvas, dab angle “slider”, comparable with the Shift+Left click Krita already has.
The Alt is not a default canvas input keybind, so Alt+Left Click could control this “draggable”, discretly (every 15°) or smoothly. I imagine this working by:
- Locking the preview outline in place,
- Making a circle with an arrow on it (see 2nd img)
- Then letting the user control it (like 3rd img)
I’m aware that the pop-up pallete already has a slider for the angle, and it works perfectly. but it’s not as intuitive, because the user doesnt have live feedback, they have to guess it.
So, for example, this dab shape:
When pressing Alt…
…And pressing Left click, the arrow follows the cursor:
Also, It would be nice to have one of these “draggables” for opacity too, again, very similar to the Shift+left click .
This time without a default keybind (or maybe Ctrl+Shift+Left Click) and a solid brush tip preview appear on the cursor. dragging up and down increases and decreases opacity, respectively (but it could be left and right as well)
note: I’m not familliar with coding, so i cant provide technical details, unfornately. these are just ideas i had… Also, if this is too difficult or even impossible to do, please do let me know
