brush stroke preview area
Submitted by Adrian Likins
Not sure where exactly to put it, but probablt at least the brush dialog should have a preview of what the currently selected brush+paint options will look like.
Painter and PS both do this, and it's very handy for quickly selecting an approriate brush/tool/etc.
See http://www.tiemdesign.com/tabindex-32/tabid-27/itemid-1927/DesktopDefault.aspx or http://www.myjanee.com/tuts/brush7/intro/brush7.htm for tutorials that show the brush selection dialog for ps/painter and the stroke preview window (the "swish" looking preview at the bottom of the dialog).
If we start adding more flexible paint tools, this will be fairly essentially to make the added flexibility useable.
