The spacing for a custom brush tip is 25% by default, and although you can adjust it each time you use it, you can't adjust the spacing or other settings of a brush before defining it. To save the settings for a brush using a custom brush tip, click the Brush Preset tab on the left side of the Brushes palette. Then, click the triangle in the upper-right corner of the palette (or next to the palette name) and choose New Brush. The new brush will be defined and saved in the Brush Preset window, as discussed in the following tip, "Create and Save Custom Brushes."
TRY IT To use a custom brush, shape, or pattern, access the appropriate palette—Brushes, Custom Shape Picker, or pattern picker—and select your new item from the list.
