Krita 3.0.1 Highlights

  • Smarter input boxes that can accept simple maths! Unit conversion is still coming! This feature was created by Laurent Jospin.
  • Per-stroke fuzziness sensor, called “Fuzzy: Stroke”, perfect for all those grassblades that need to be subtly different.
  • Added “Ratio” property to the brush editor. This allows you to map the brush width and height aspect ratio to your pen. This feature was created by Nishant Rodriguez
  • Gradient Maps can now be added as filter layers.
  • New option to convert a group into an animated layer
  • Added showing coordinates when using the Move Tool. Enable this feature from the tool options.
  • Added Japanese animation template (by Saisho Kazuki)
  • Snap free transform tool with the Shift key
  • Improved Pixel 1 Preset
  • Improved default onion skin settings to make it easier to use
  • Use relative zooming so you zoom based off your cursor instead of the center of the screen
  • Add ability to enter groups with PgUp/PgDown shortcuts
  • Gray out sliders for disabled onion skin columns
  • Added Breeze color themes
  • re-organized the layers menu and layer context-click menu so they take up less space
  • Improved verbiage for “paste to simple source” dialog. It is now called “Missing Color Profile”. Added option to remember your selection.
  • Visibility of status bar is now saved
  • Show previous color in Advanced Colors Selector docker
  • Retired the support for the little-used OpenJPEG export format. (Note: this has nothing to do with JPEG support!)
  • There is an optional button available for the toolbars to switch pressure sensitivity off and on (patch by Grigory Tantsevov)
