Creating an eraser pack
If you want all the erasers in one place, create an eraser pack.
- Follow the instructions in Creating a new brush set to create a new brush set.
- Follow the steps in Renaming brushes and brush sets to rename the pack.
- To add erasers to the pack, do one of two things:
- If you don’t want to remove the selected eraser from its current set, make a duplicate using (found in the Brush Library marking menu). Once you have a copy, drag it to the new set.
- Drag an eraser directly into the brush pack. This removes the eraser from its original pack and moves it to the new pack.
Convert a brush to an eraser
If you have a favorite brush and want an eraser just like it:
- in the Brush Library, use the marking menu to duplicate the brush
- open the duplicated brush's Brush Properties
- from the drop-down menu just underneath the brush name, change the brush type to Eraser
