Manga Studio Hothouse Orientation Day Five.
I'm going to go out on a limb and say I've cracked the line weight problem by choosing one size of brush and sticking to it, at least for all the figure work (a smaller line weight for backgrounds isn't so much of an issue). Sort of getting there, I think?
The lettering, on the other hand, is driving me insane. PJ Holden has a very good tutorial on lettering where he says you can save your font and size settings as pre-saved settings, or "sub tools" (?), but doesn't say how you go about doing that. So I looked it up (I forget if it was in a book or on the web now) and I tried saving a few settings, but I haven't been able to make them work – except the very first one, which I'm pretty sure I did exactly the same as the others, but the others didn't work and this one did. Why? I don't know! Answers on a postcard please (or just point me at some tutorial that spells it out for us slow ones at the back of the class).
