Gravit Designer discussion

Various brush and pen strokes

I assume this has been posted already but haven’t seen it anywhere, and this is something that I wish Gravit offered virtually every time I use it. I know it might be considered more of a Photoshop tool than for a vector program, but I would really really love to have different strokes available.
For example, in order to do this:

I have to use a regular pen stroke, vectorise it, and edit each node manually to get the thicker-thinner effect I want.
Having a tool that does this would save me hours of work!

Hi @Squirrell,

yes, brushes have been requested before and it is already on the roadmap but unfortunately, there’s no ETA for this feature.

Your workaround is nice but I know, very time consuming.

I’ve been playing with start and end arrows to create an effect at the line tips: https://share.getcloudapp.com/rRu7g1yw - I know it won’t fix the line width issue but at least the ends can be shaped to “simulate a vector brush”. - https://share.getcloudapp.com/o0u8YR4q

Problem is that if you convert to path(or create an outline…), the tips disappear(we’re aware of that). :pensive:

I believe it´s not so much about the ends but the dynamic stroke like for instance the “Powerstroke” effect in Inkscape:

That’s why I said:

Yesss - but I couldn´t resist with a small “hint hint”. :laughing:
