Bad design of new sculpting/texture painting widget for Size and Strength.
Closed, DuplicatePublic


System Information
Operating system: Win10/Win7
Graphics card:Gtx1070/hd620

Blender Version
Broken: (example: 2.82.1, 2019-26-10)
Worked: 2.79/2.80

Short description of error
Thats not and error, its just a bad design decision. When used with screen tablet there is an issue when we want to make small brush from bigger(for righthanded people and left handed it will be a problem when going from small to big). The thing is that while doing this, we are covering the screen with our palm.
Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Go into sculpt mode or texture paint mode, type F or shift F. Make biggest possible brush, hit F for size widget and make it smaller, your hand will cover tablet screen.

Im not sure why 2.79/2.8 widget was removed but it was perfect for left or right handed people. If its not possible to revert this change than please add 2.79/2.8 widget as option for people with screen tablets and people who prefer old design. Ive made a video for those of you who did not understand what im writing here.

Event Timeline

I believe this is still being iterated on (D6020), and although I can't find this in writing anywhere, I heard that there are plans to bring back the old behaviour as an option. @Pablo Dobarro (pablodp606) can you confirm? (And close, if you think it should be closed)

@Brecht Van Lommel (brecht) I wouldnt call this a duplicate cause the problem is not make any size of brush but the problem is that while i make brush/any size of strenght im covering screen with my palm.


The bug tracker is strictly for bug reports, user feedback on design goes elsewhere and so we normally just close reports like this.

That other bug report is the closest to a discussion on a usability, so best to leave a comment there if you have suggestions to change the design.

Bump, problem still exists in 2.82. @Pablo Dobarro (pablodp606) Can you give pre 2.81 cursor back as option?
