In Photoshop and many other programs, the bracket keys [] are used to increase and decrease the brush Radius respectively

Does Blender's Grease Pencil have this functionaltiy? I can't seem to find anything of the sort in the User Preferences.

If nothing exists, how would I go about creating it?

  • $\begingroup$ The blender manual only mentions tablet/touch pressure as a means to vary the thickness of the brush. You would need to implement your own key combination for this functionality. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ No options for this seem to be visible in User Preferences. Where would be a good place to learn how to implement this functionality? $\endgroup$ Jun 11 '18 at 17:54
  • $\begingroup$ I am also curious. The closest data path is wm.radial_control with tool_settings.gpencil_vertex_paint.brush.size , but it will popup a ring like 'F'. $\endgroup$ Mar 15 at 4:04

In Blender 2.80, while you are in draw mode for the grease pencil object and have Draw tool as active tool.

You can press F on keyboard and drag the mouse/tablet pen to increase or decrease the radius of the brush.

As for version 2.8 radius can be changed by using the keyboard shortcut F

In 2.9.3 pressing F switches to the Fill Tool in Draw Mode. The hotkey for Brush Size is S and U for Opacity.

These can be set in Edit > Preferences > Keymap > Grease Pencil > Stroke Paint mode > Radial Control.

  • $\begingroup$ I am on 2.93.5. In Draw-mode <F> gives me the size-control, I'd have to go <shift>+<spacebar> 1 to get the fill-tool. I can't recognize what you are saying at all? $\endgroup$
