Hey there, Pixelmator Pro shows you a live preview of your brush if you double-click to edit it, but it might be nice to have it visible even when you're not editing brush presets.

As for blending mode previews, that's a nice idea. We'll see what we can do.

Im not sure you got what i meant, like if your painting (or erasing) it should show you what would happen if you choose to paint, like over the canvas.. or do you mean that i can activate that somehow?

Yeah, I think I might be getting confused here — here's an image of what I'm talking about: Image



You can also paint in that preview to test out a brush. Is that more or less what you're looking for?

You see how it shows you what will happen when you click? Sorry for my English hehe but hovering gives you a preview of paiting/erasing..

Oh, no worries, I see what you mean now — you'd like to see a live preview inside the brush cursor. Well, we already have this for the Clone tool, so I think this shouldn't be too difficult from a technical standpoint. I've added it to the feature request list and we'll think about it!
