To create a new brush type:
- Design your desired brush shape in Xara, then select it and go into the Freehand and Brush Tool.
- Click Create Brush
A dialogue box will appear - give your brush an appropriate name and then decide whether it is to be a Scatter or Art brush.
This dialog displays the options for version 11. V10 and below versions will show a slightly different dialog without the additional art option.
- Click Create. Your new brush will be in the brush dropdown list to choose from.
