A brush stroke applied to the page is fully editable and can be modified, while the stroke is selected, via options on the context toolbar.
For more advanced brush settings you can also use the Edit button on the Brushes panel, with the option to save your brush stroke setting as a new brush preset.
The following settings are available in the Brush dialog's Stroke section:
Brush Width—sets the size of the stroke.
Size Variance—sets the amount of brush width deviation allowed as a stroke is painted.
Opacity Variance—sets the amount of transparency deviation allowed as a stroke is painted.
The controller pop-up menu varies the brush size and opacity according to a particular input: 'Pressure' for pen tablets and Force Touch-enabled devices, and 'Velocity' or 'Velocity Inversed' for mice/Trackpads.
