having been a user of gimp for several years and several versions, i
have a few habits "hardcoded" into my work flow.
for these examples, i actually opened the stroke dialog, closed the
stroke dialog, chose the brush from the brush dialog and then reopened
the stroke dialog, just to be certain. meaning, i did not even rely on
the dialog noticing that i had changed the brush.
i was quite careful to choose the 7px fuzzy brush also, as i wanted to
compare the "custom stroking" from the top of the dialog with the brush
stroking at the bottom. i understood that choosing a fuzzy 7 px brush
was not going to look the same; however, i tried to make it as
consistant as possible so i would not waste the time of these valuable
volunteers that work on gimp.
if you have any further questions about the method i used to tell this
dialog which brush to use, i will be more than happy to answer them.
