Why not?
IMHO, If it was the same as a truetype font and the bitmap brush was 300x300 pixels, maybe; because we'd always scale down and there'd be no attempt to up-scale and try and make a better brush from a brush with less data. [Loss of quality is another issue, meaning that you can only have so much data there...] If you have a 8x8 brush and want to draw something that is 80x80, that is a completely different matter. Of course, scaling would make so much sense with SVG/Vector brushes -- but then, GIMP is a raster graphics program. No-win situation. *sigh* If the code is there, and it is possible to get at it using another device; it doesn't seem to me for it to be unreasonable to provide mice-based and/or keyboard-based ways of providing the same funcationality... but that said, it has to be done within limits or users will simply get confused and/or complain about weird things. -- ~Mike - Just my two cents - No man is an island, and no man is unable. _______________________________________________ Gimp-user mailing list Gimp-user@lists.XCF.Berkeley.EDU https://lists.XCF.Berkeley.EDU/mailman/listinfo/gimp-user
