3.3. MyPaint Brushes Dialog

The MyPaint Brushes dialog

The « MyPaint Brushes » dialog is used to select a MyPaint brush, for use with painting tools: see the MyPaint Brush tool section for more information on MyPaint brushes and how they are used in GIMP. The dialog also gives you access to several functions for manipulating brushes. You can select a brush by clicking on it in the list: it will then be shown in the Tool Options area of the Toolbox when the MyPaint Brush is the active tool.

3.3.1. Accès au dialogue

The « MyPaint Brushes » dialog is a dockable dialog. See the section Dialogs and Docking for help on manipulating it.

Vous pouvez y accéder :

  • From an image menu: WindowsDockable DialogsMyPaint Brushes.

  • From the Tab menu in any dockable dialog by clicking on and selecting Add TabMyPaint Brushes.

  • From the Tool Options dialog for any of the paint tools, by clicking on the MyPaint Brush icon button, you get a popup with similar functionality that permits you to quickly choose a brush from the list; if you click on the button present on the right bottom of the popup, you open the real MyPaint brush dialog.

    La fenêtre de dialogue des « Brosses » simplifiée

    Cette fenêtre possède cinq boutons, clairement expliqués par des bulles d’aide.

    • Aperçus plus petits

    • Aperçus plus grands

    • Afficher en liste

    • Afficher en grille

    • Open the MyPaint brush selection dialog

    Notez que, selon vos Préférences, une brosse sélectionnée ne s’appliquera qu’à l’outil en cours. Voyez la section Tool Option Preferences pour plus d’informations.

3.3.2. Using the « MyPaint Brushes » dialog Mode Grille et mode Liste

Dans le menu Onglets, vous avez le choix entre Voir comme une liste et Voir comme une grille. En mode grille, les motifs sont disposés dans un agréable tableau rectangulaire. En mode Liste, les motifs sont alignés verticalement avec leur nom.

Dans le menu d’onglets, l’option Taille des aperçus vous permet d’adapter la taille des aperçus des motifs à votre goût.

En mode grille

At the top of the dialog appears a filter box where you can filter the MyPaint brushes shown based on their tags; and the name of the currently selected brush.

In the center a grid view of all available brushes is shown, with the currently selected one outlined. Below the grid is a box that shows the tags assigned to the currently selected brush.

Mode Grille et mode Liste

For the most part, the dialog works the same way in List mode as in Grid mode, with the following exception: the name of the current brush isn't shown at the top. MyPaint Brush previews

When you click on a brush preview, it becomes the current brush and it gets selected in the MyPaint Brush Tool Options. You can also click on buttons at the bottom of the dialog to perform various actions. Mots-clés

You can use tags to reorganize the MyPaint brushes display. See Section 3.7, « Mots-clés ». Les boutons en bas de la fenêtre

At the bottom of the dialog you find the following buttons:

Edit MyPaint Brush

This is currently always disabled since GIMP does not support editing MyPaint brushes. This is also the reason why there is no create new brush button.

Dupliquer la brosse

This button is also always disabled.

Supprimer la brosse

This option is always disabled as far as I have seen.

Actualiser les brosses

If you add brushes to your personal MyPaint brushes folder or any other folder in your MyPaint brushes search path, this button causes the list to be reloaded, so that the new entries will be available in the dialog.

Some of functions performed by these buttons can also be accessed from the dialog pop-up menu, activated by right-clicking anywhere in the brush grid/list, or by choosing the top item, MyPaint Brushes menu, from the dialog Tab menu. The « MyPaint Brushes » context menu
