    Default Suggestion : Improvement on strokes

    Hi,

    Iíve been using Art brushes a lot lately and they are amazing, very useful in many situations.

    It would be nice to be able to offset the stroke. (like in the scatter brush)

    For example, trying to do a curved shading is very hard, changing the stroke size messes up the shape requires much adjustments (for example with contour->Inset path).
    This occurs in many situations.

    Also a variable width editor would very much expand the flexibility of art brushes and all other.
    A simple editor where one can add some points would be very nice.

    All things considered this is one of the major improvements I would like to see in the pro version.

    Thanks

    Since Illustrator had this function built in, I've also suggested it for Xara. But from the other side there is only silence.
    Baut also +1.

    The Expression 3.3 method was also good with a point-based approach graph :

    Such feature would really improve on art brush possibilities.
