Renaming brushes and brush sets

Once you have created a brush or brush set, it's nice to be able to assign a name to it that actually reflects what it is, making it easier to distinguish it from others. By renaming the brush or brush set, you can do just that.


IMPORTANT: Sketchbook doesn't currently support the renaming of brushes on mobile devices.


If you want to go one step further, try rearranging your brushes and brush sets, placing your favorites at the top of the Brush Palette and Brush Library. If you want to go even one step further, why not create a new brush set‍  with your favorite brushes in it, then pin it to the Brush Palette.
