Merge brush looks into the actual brush settings

Creating brush looks so that it remembers what texture your brush has is a tedious extra step. All other painting programs allow you to save the texture as part of the variant, without this extra step.

Clean up the code. Start-up time is glacial after adding papers and brushes

Out of the box, Painter 2023 will start within 30 seconds on my PC. After adding 8 paper packs and 15 brush packs, I can go make coffee and take a bathroom break before the welcome screen appears. Seriously, it takes 4 minutes and 10 seconds. The ...

Currently, I am unable to adjust opacity of layers or strokes with my WACOM Intuos without specifying a keypress for each Opacity Value (0-9). In addition (or replacing) current Opacity control of a keyboard number, I propose an Opacity Up and Dow...

saving to folders

Make a Painter Essentials for Android

I think it would be great if Painter Essentials were made for Android phones. That way people with drawing/painting tablets can take the tablets anywhere and still be able to use Painter Essentials.

Multiple dabs for a single brush

I think it would be nice to be able to use a list of dabs (ideally with customizable chance of each being used) instead of a single one. It would be especially useful for painterly brushes or brushes meant to fill in parts of the background rather...
