Resetting brush properties

Jump to Mobile or Windows 10


When you reset brush properties, you are deleting all customization you made a brush. So, why would you do this? Maybe you need to delete custom proprietary brushes from a client, once the project is finished or want to reset some brushes to their defaults because you don’t like the customized settings.

There are two options for resetting brushes to their default settings, you can reset one brush or all.
