Brush control

The Size, Opacity, Thickness, Direction, Interval, Spray Area, and Density of the pattern brush can be adjusted even further if you want to. If you look closely at the titles of these options, they're actually buttons you can click with your mouse or stylus. Clicking any of them brings up the Brush Control dialog box. You can switch between any of the options by clicking on their respective tab.

The controls you can set vary, depending on the option you're adjusting. So I complied a list covering the various controls you can adjust the option with:

v* None: The option is left unchanged.

f Stroke Speed: The option is affected by how fast or slow you draw a line.

f Pressure: The option is affected by the amount of pressure placed on the tablet by the stylus. This works only with tablets that support pen pressure. The pressure can be further tweaked by adjusting the Fixed settings graph, located to the right of the Select Control list, e* Tilt: The option is affected by the way the stylus is tilted on the drawing tablet. The tilt can be further tweaked by adjusting the Fixed settings graph, located to the right of the Select Control list. This control works only with tablets that support pen tilt.

f* Orientation: The option is affected by the orientation of the pen on the tablet. This works only with tablets that support pen orientation.

V Rotation: The option is affected by the rotation of the stylus on the drawing tablet. This works only with tablets that support pen rotation.

f Stroke Direction: The option is affected by the direction you draw.

Random: The option is altered randomly. If you're working with a mouse or a tablet that doesn't support the above options, you can always select this to try and simulate a tablet that can support them.
