Procreate has the most versatile digital Brush Library – you can sketch, paint, smudge, and erase with hundreds of different brushes. But what is absolutely amazing about Procreate Brush Library is that you can create your own brushes!
And when it comes to your custom-created brushes, there are many things you can do to keep them organized. One of those things (I think, a bit underrated) is the ability to rename brushes. In this tutorial, I will show you how to rename your custom brushes to keep your Brush Library organized.
Rename an individual brush
1. Go to your Brush Library
First of all, go to your Brush Library – tap on the brush icon on the top right of your toolbar. Choose the brush that you would like to rename and tap on it. Doing this will take you to the Brush Studio where you can edit this specific brush.
2. Tap “About this brush”
Once you are in the Brush Studio, you would see many options to choose from on the left side – all of these options change something about the brush. Go to the very bottom and tap “About this brush.”
3. Change the brush title
Now when you are in the “About this brush” section, at the top you will see the current brush name. To change it simply tap the current name – it will bring up the keyboard.
Once you typed the new name, click “done” to save the new name. To exit the Brush Studio and save the changes you’ve made to your brush click “done” at the top right corner of your screen.
Rename a brush set
1. Go to the Brush Library
Your first step would be going to the Brush Library – tap on the brush icon on the top right of your toolbar. Now, pick the brush set you would like to rename and tap on it to select.
Now, tap on the brush set one more time – it will bring up the Options menu with rename, delete, share, and duplicate options. Tap Rename, and it will bring up the keyboard.
Once you typed the new name, tap anywhere on the screen to exit.
One thing you need to remember is that you can’t rename Procreate’s default brush sets and individual brushes. After all, Procreate still owns them. However, you can duplicate a default brush set or brush and rename the copy.
I hope you liked this tutorial – now you can give your brushes and sets memorable names to keep your Brush Library well organized. Please consider checking out my other Procreate tutorials and subscribing to Procreate Member Area, where you will find the biggest Procreate Resources Library.
