    I would love to see Ribbet add this feature – having the mouse wheel control the brush size would save lots of time when editing.

    Hi Tanya,

    Thanks for contacting us!

    This is an excellent suggestion – only issue is that the mouse wheel is currently used for zooming in and out of your image, which is also handy when editing. We do currently have a keyboard shortcut for changing the brush size: you can use the [ and ] keys to change the brush size.

    Let us know if you have any other suggestions or questions. Thanks!

    Yes, good point. Okay, great, I didn’t know about the keyboard shortcut – I’ll give it a try! Thank you!

    About that zooming in and out on your image . . . That feature can be really handy when you want to get a good look up close. The rest of the time, though, it makes me nuts because my image won’t stay in one place; it flies in my face and then whirls away with the slightest touch of the mouse, when what I really need is a steady hand. Is there something I can do to temporarily lock the screen? I hope there is! Thank you!

    Hi Soveery,

    Thanks for reaching out to us! This looks like a bit of a bug with the Mac “magic mouse” on our program version. You can overcome it right now by using our web version, however we will fix it in an update soon.

    In the meantime while we work on the update, you can also avoid it by being conscious that if you scroll something, such as the effects list, then if you move over the main image straight away that zooming can carry on and zoom into the image unintentionally. So by waiting for the scrolling to stop, you can avoid it.

    If you have any further questions or feedback, please let us know!

    – Regards, The Ribbet Team
