All the brushes have this oblong shaped profile(blue) when I select the radius via "F" keyword even though the face is parallel to the XZ plane. Is there a setting that I have accidentally changed?

    $\begingroup$ go to object mode, press ctrl+A and apply scale, your brush should be normal $\endgroup$

Just to explain why this happened in the first place... this is the default cube with a normal brush: enter image description here

And when you scale your object in only 1 axis, for example, axis Z, this happens: enter image description here

This is simply due to the reason that you scaled it... it even gives you this warning message: enter image description here

It simply warns you that you scaled your object not in all axis but only in 1 or 2. Solution is to apply scale by pressing Ctrl+A and selecting Scale, this will set your object to 1/1/1 and your object will be uniform once again

  • $\begingroup$ the warning message is very subtle as I hardly ever notice it! I have to pay more attention to it. Im assuming it cannot be moved to a more line of sign view? $\endgroup$ Commented Oct 22, 2021 at 15:57
