Tool Settings Used, Recall, Log, Layer Notes, etc.

This post may be better suited for "Idea: Share and vote for app improvements," however, I'll try Discussion first to see if there's a lesson here to be learned.

 

I'm fairly new to Substance Painter, so this question may already have an answer. I searched, but I couldn't find anything.  Intuitively, noticing that SP doesn't recall a brush's setting or a tool's setting (e.g., size, flow, stroke opacity, angle, jitters, spacing, etc.), I right-clicked on a layer wondering if I could add a note.  But I didn't see a way to do that.  So, I've been keeping a text log of all of my layers and the brush or alpha I used and all of its settings.  This just in case I lost something and wanted to repeat it on another layer.

 

I am surprised that there's no way of making a note within SP. I believe I saw a place to create presets.  Is this the only way to do this?

 

Thanks to everyone for their consideration.

You could certainely create a brush preset to save your brush settings.

As for the ability to add note on a layer , then it is not a bad idea. I could see a use for it. You might want to separate that part out and post it under 'Ideas'. I'd vote for it.

I just played around with the presets. Works well. That will be added to my process for sure.  And thanks for the future vote! 🙂
