Digital Scrapper


Do you know the super-secret keyboard shortcut for moving brush strokes on the fly? This is a new one to me, so I thought I’d pass it along to you!

Open up your program and give it a try:

  • Create a new document.
  • Make black the Foreground Color Chip.
  • Create a new layer (always brush on a new layer).
  • Get the Brush tool.
  • Brush on the document.

Okay, here’s the shortcut:

  • Hold down the Ctrl key (Mac: Cmd key) and click and drag on the brush strokes to move them around. Let go of the Ctrl/Cmd key and you are back on the Brush tool.

Note: This shortcut works best if you uncheck Auto-Select in the Tool Options of the Move tool.
