The Brush Creator is covered in some detail in Chapter 4, but gets a quick mention here as it is used in a few step-by-step examples in earlier chapters.
The Brush Creator.
This palette, which is accessed by the Ctrl/Cmd + B shortcut or from Window>Show Brush Creator, houses the controls for customizing brushes. Clicking on a category from the list on the left opens the relevant sub palette and reveals the sliders and options available. On the right is the Scratch Pad where brushes can be tried out prior to use.
In Painter X all the sub palettes are also available as separate palettes that can be brought on the screen individually which is very useful as many of the palettes are rarely used. One palette I recommend you keep on screen is the General palette and this is available from Window> Brush Controls> General. In some earlier versions of Painter this is not available separately but it can be accessed from the Brush Creator.
