Hi all,

Just wanted to ask if there was a way of applying a brush stroke style to a pen tool shape.
I do this often in Photoshop where I would trace a graphic with the pen tool, then whatever brush style I had attached to the Pen tool would then be applied.

So can Pixelmator do something similar? e.g Applying the Jimbo Chisel brush to the Pen tool stroke? All I can see to adjust the stroke type is width, position, colour and opacity. Would be cool to see another dropdown to say "Brush type" showing all the available brushes.

Maybe there is and I'm just blind

Hey Chris. That's not something you can currently do in Pixelmator Pro but we've got a few requests of this feature already so I'll add your vote for it!

I’m also looking for some way to turn shapes into brush strokes.

As far as I know, there are already some things in development! We'll just have to wait and see how it goes.
