Wassup guys, this is my first post on this site!
Does anyone can tell me how to install the 50 free brushes package on a mac?
many many thanx in advance
I took a while for me to find out how it's done... but I managed to do it.
There's a symbol on top right hand corner of the brush palette. Symbol has several small circles placed on a circle path. Click on that, hold down the mouse and choose new brush(plus sign and a brush) from the menu. It opens up a dialog box. On bottom left you find a button called: import. Click on it - now you can navigate to the folder where brushes are situated. It is a bit painful to bring in brushes one by one. The system doesn't seem to allow to import them all at one go. Also some of the thumbnails seem to be missing.
I tried several times to use the import feature, but it kept all brushes unavailable for import. Hopefully there's a fix for this coming up soon. On iPad version of this software you have many more brushes as a preset. I wonder, why the same couldn't happen here.
I am using Mac OSX - it could be different if you have another OS.
Thanks for the info bro!. I was just wondering how to import the brushes and I came to check out for an answer and saw your post.
Sketchbook allows to install brush sets. The problem with the Bentley free brushes is that there is no much information available on how to properly import this files into sketch book pro. I found out that SBP reads zip files, so I compresed each folder in my mac. The problem I had initially and it may be your problem too, is that I compressed the folder with the files inside of it. Sketchbook couldn't read the files and gave me an error. To avoid this just select all the tiff and the xml files inside the folder and right click and select "compress all selected files". It should result in a zip file, I have a mac but I remember windows also allows you to zip files this way. Now just import the brush set as mention in the previous post by selecting the resulting zip file.
I was having the same problem but with windows 7 instead of mac. Thanks to you, it was the exact same way to import brushes. In the window version of SketchBook Pro there is only an option to import a "brush set" which worked out great!
Anyway, just wantedto say thanks for Inadvertently helping me!
