# note symmetry does not flip shapes, only x,y coordinates.
– Seamless (seamless tiling of square and circle shapes – functions are not 100% supported)

# seamless and symmetry is sometimes broken when using zoom.

Radius
– Taper radius (draws shape from current radius to 0 – speed adjustable)
– Pulse radius (draws shape from current radius to 1 to current radius and repeats – speed adjustable)
– Random Radius (sets random radius between min and max values, refreshes each brush iteration)
