Exporting brush sets

Jump to Mobile or Windows 10


Now that you’ve made one or more sets of brushes, we recommend you save them. Once you export brush sets, they can be shared with people working on different platforms or even sell them. If you haven’t created your own brush icons, before exporting, you might want to make your own icons. Take a look at How to import brush icons.

One thing to keep in mind, if someone wants to open a brush created in a newer version of Sketchbook than they have, they will need to update the app to do so.
