Pushed. I tested this on my surface pro 4 as well. It seems it is much more common if the steps are done with the mouse. Applying this patch seemed to fix the issue.

I removed a qWarning() that I was using for testing. I also made it so you can only lock/unlock with a right click.

After talking with Wolthera and further testing, I think the random brush tips are ok. I think there is a problem with exporting out GIH brushes in Krita, so it is marking those brushes as incremental. We can't see that on the UI anywhere so I was assuming the brush tip was correct with how it was made.
I talked with Wolthera and Radian a bit. They both do not use the lock feature much. With how little this feature is used, I am thinking we might want to only enable it with a right click button now (like you can do already). It is simpler to access if you can click on the lock, but it doesn't sound like we want people easily enabling this feature.
I talked with @timotheegiet a bit over IRC. We are either thinking two directions
This wad pushed out and I forgot to close it
@animtim. So you think we should make it a double click I'd you are clicking the icon?. Before you could double click anywhere, not just by the lock icon to deactivate it

- @ramonmiranda can speak to the thumbnails more. He has been doing quite a bit with these
- Saying things like "useless" isn't convincing anyone . It is better to get feedback from multiple artists asking questions like "Maybe we have too many FX presets?" I am sure you realize different people have different work flows with how they work, so what you think is just part of the answer. I think some of these were originally taken from the Krita 3.0 set. Maybe it just needs more discussion. We haven't really discussed the FX ones much. The main thing is that we at least need one preset from an engine. I think FX Smoke Particles is the only brush preset that is using the Particle Engine.
- Please provide a few KPP files. As long as it gives noticeably different results than anything we have, it should be ok
@razvanr The work flow for this process has been pretty much entirely on this forum thread. As you can see, it is a very long forum thread. Uploading a ZIP/KPP file is what we have been doing. Brush sizes around 50-250 seem to be the target we are going for with these defaults. Of course things like inking brushes will be smaller. A few presets need to be updated to fit this pattern.

@razvanr That google docs is not used any more. It was a hassle to try to keep that straight. There was so much stuff people wanted to change that we thought it would be better to start from scratch.
in regards to new presets being proposed, I see some of them have "auto" spacing turned on. Is this still frowned upon or does someone know something I don't? I thought it really hurt performance. We have even gone out of our way to turn auto spacing off for the presets that previously had it on.
@razvanr - you said there is no way to modify the thumbnail once created. It sounds like you are looking for a certain workflow. Most brush creators want A LOT of control over exactly how their brush images look (layers with different elements, changing the brush size, changing the color, manual placement of different elements, text overlays, different backgrounds, etc). Some even want auto-generated stroke previews so they don't have to make them.

@radianart - thanks. I will take a look at those.

@woltherav I din't see the wet vs dry had similar colors. Maybe the wet brushes could be pink. We don' t have a ton of wet brushes, so I don't know how useful it would be to give them two colors based on a property like dull or smearing.

@ramonmiranda thanks for the stuff!

Color coding the presets....

@ramonmiranda which brush tips did you use for the pencil presets. I tried loading them in, but it said the tips were missing. Also when you showed me last time, the brush tip looked like a gradient (which we don't have right now in the defaults). We either need to add the new tip, or point to the newly renamed tips. The tips were renamed last Saturday, so there shouldn't be any more renaming for them if you have the latest nightly.

@ramonmiranda thanks for the preset icons. I wonder if there is a better way to do text overlays than putting it directly in the image. Doing that for every brush would be tedious...and it doesn't take into account localization and how some people might make brushes in other languages like Japanese.
@ramonmiranda spent a while playing with your brushes. I pretty much added almost all of them. The new stuff should all appear in the nightly windows build when it runs on Friday. Thanks for all your hard work on it.

@ramonmiranda great review video and thanks for the updated presets! I can update all of these. The color smudge engine is slower at bigger brush sizes, so these optimizations are great. Most people have no ideas how to optimize brushes like this...so people will just think "wow, krita is faster".
@ramonmiranda - I remember when we had a small video chat, you had a large document with all kinds of testing and brushes. Are you done with that and able to share anything?
- I am not sure a good way to rename GBR brushes. Just changing the file name doesn't seem to change the name in the brush editor. Is there a good way to rename those. I could try to make some updates to those to give them better names. I would prefer better descriptions for the names instead of alphabet prefixes

This looks good to me Dmitry! Good job.

I think it would be neat to look through our support tickets and see if we can add links to commonly asked questions. The goal would be to add a few links, or section, to minimize questions a lot of beginners have like not having pressure sensitivity or why Krita "lags".

One of the settings that was mentioned on IRC was to potentially see and change the shortcut configuration here. It is a bit hard to find and know about from where it is now
Another idea... Not sure if this is possible, but could we potentially hide the toolbox if there are no documents open. Right now some people start playing around with those tools and don't realize that they won't actually do anything.
One use case quiralta came up with is that he just wants to create a canvas and get sketching. Right now you have to see the New document dialog, then hit create before being able to do this.
- One potential thing we could add to this would be a "Start Sketching" link, or something like that. It would automatically create a custom document at a specific size without bringing up the new image dialog.
I think for the flow of this... we can potentially remove the splash screen staying visible once Krita is loaded. I think if we move the stuff like recent document to this new area, there is no need to keep the splash screen visible after Krita loads. One less popup that appears as I see it.

@ramonmiranda sure. we can discuss here. I took quite a few of the brush presets...but maybe there are some other ones that would be good too.
