Hi, I've made my own custom art brushes in Illustrator by "drag and dropping" the objects on the left to the brush window/panel on the right. But the thing is, I plan to do more custom art brushes and it might become disorganized later on if I just continue "drag and dropping" this here on this particular brush window/panel.

Pic 1.JPGI've just made one set of my custom art brushes, I plan to do more sets of custom brushes in the future. How can I make it organized that each brush set I make is separated? I want each set to have it's own brush window/panel with only the custom brushes I want in it, I don't know how to remove the preset brushes. I also want to know how to rename a particular brush window panel.

I want to make my set of custom brushes look like the ones I've arranged on the right of my user interface (the preset brush libraries, ex: decorative banners... etc.) . Please help.

Delete the brushes you don't want by selecting them and clicking on the trash can in the brush panel. Then go to 'Save brush library' in the brush panel menu, and save it to C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Illustrator Settings\en_GB\x64\Brushes

 

It will then be available from the brush panel itself (Libraries menu > User Defined) or from the Window menu (Window > Brush libraries > User defined).
