    @vectoradmin This is an awesome update! It's obvious a lot of hard work went into this (and every update)

    @vectoradmin said in update 1.0.044:

    Improved: multiple new select similar and select attribute options.

    Is this related to the taper outlines we spoke about a while back? Being able to expand tapered strokes and then remove the taper guides? If not, it's ok, not rushing you

    @Boldline yes, the Select -> Outline -> Variable Width Brushes will select brushes with variable width profiles (tapered included).
