New Moving and Copying Brush Variants within a Library

Updated brush variants and category creation bring more design flexibility and fewer steps when saving variants. Now, you can quickly move or copy a brush variant to any category by simply dragging the variant within the brush selector.

New Workspace Management

Workspaces can now be deleted! An active workspace that is being deleted will allow you to select another workspace or a default workspace. In addition, brush libraries can also be removed from Painter 12.
