We need to spec a new slider with the following properties: show state as a fill move the state to the position the user clicks inside the slider change state by tilt allow manual input of numbers no drop-down misc remove COPY composite mode from the user's view brush size slider: change diameter/scale for current brush for preset Retrieved from "https://community.kde.org/index.php?title=Krita/Usability&oldid=3836" This page was last edited on 7 July 2010, at 10:20.
