New feature or functionality

Autosave! Earlier versions had it, why not 2023? It's crazy.

Not only should it be a no-brainer, but Painter is prone to crashing...at least for me on Mac OS Ventura 13. If you don't remember to regularly save manually, you can lose hours-worth of work.

View font thumbnail

I would love to have a view of the font when using the text tool. I believe all graphics programs have this ability. It would be helpful if the last three fonts that was used were listed at the top so you could easily find them. Also maybe have a ...

Sample multiple colors on the canvas and reference

While working with brushes that can sample multiple colors with the mixer pad, I think it would be useful to be able to sample on the canvas and reference as well

Have Fill tool remember last setting

I use the fill with color very often with the bucket tool, but it defaults to texture on me often, so I would like it to stay with the last setting I "used" it with, not other things I did in the program with textures or other tools.

Have Brush Icon show Direction or Rotation of stroke like Enhanced Brush Ghost

I like to be able to use the brush icon but it doesn't show the the direction or rotation of the stroke. It would be a plus if it could be set to direction or rotation and follow the stroke as it paints

Combining Dab Effects

After watching a video on Dab Effects, which look really useful, it occurred to me that being able to combine the effects within one dab would be useful. For example, Add Erosion along with Feathering. I'm sure there's many more combination that w...
