Clamps...Grethe

I think it is called clamps [ ] ?
Anyway, I use them often to increase and decrease in AD, but now and then it doesn't work!  :scratch3: :pullhair: Others that have the same experience?

mmmmmmmmmm   it works most of the time for me

have you tried holding  Alt and the left and right held down together on your mouse (while  moving the mouse ) to increase and decrease
i use that more often

i have just had a quick play and
while holding ALT and your left and right clicks down on your mouse
If you move up and down the Hardness is changed
if you move from left to right  the size of the brush is changed

if you hold alt and  left click down on the mouse  your cursor becomes a colour picker  :stars: :stars:

I used ALT GR to change the size, but that doesn't work....right now.
I will try what you suggest and see what happens…

Although they do resemble clamps, they are called "square brackets", Grethe.

Thanks Lynn!

And I still can't get it to work like it used to. ALT GR and clamps/brackets works in AP but not in AD......and it works when I write here

Greth, are you saying you use the brackets to zoom in and out?   I use my mouse wheel for that.. is super fast!

All I do is click on [ to decrease and click ] to enlarge the brushes youd do not need to use any other key from the keyboard.

As I use this all the time when using brushes or selection brush.

What does one do with the selection brush?  I've only ventured over to the pixel side when I want a brush.  Have never used that tool

Do get the brackets to work, I need to use ALT GR....remember I have a Nordic keyboard. Wait a moment, I take a photo of the keyboard

Here is my keyboard

Selection Brush Tool is in the Pixel Persona...I use it to select parts to either delet it or change colours

WHAT??!!
How do you get the brackets to work?
8888 (((((((( [[[[[[[[[[ On the last one I use that ALT Gr. If I want the dollar sign I also have to use ALT GR $ £ and also for this on @. It works like it should in AP.
I understand less and less!  :madbeatcomp: :pullhair: I go take a carrot... :lol05:
