== Interface == <!--T:20-->

+
<!--T:21-->
+
'''Krita''' has a highly flexible and user-friendly interface. It grants users the liberty to customize its toolbar, shortcuts and specific tool options via drag-and-grop dockable tabbed-panels. A nice right-click splash ring enables quick access to color selector, color history and favorite brush sets, providing a convenient and immersive<!--This is not a typo.--> user experience. Customized workspace can be saved and loaded according to different tasks.
+
 
+
=== Toolbars ===
+
 
+
Krita allows users to easily right-click and customize its toolbars. There are two toolbars in Krita: "Files" toolbar and "Brushes and Stuff" toolbar. You may add or remove whatever functions of the toolbars, change text position, icon size and ordering. Texts on the button can be changed or even overlapped by assigning any desirable icons to them (with KDE plasma workspace installed) . While customizing toolbars, the function list is searchable.
+
 
+
=== Shortcuts ===
+
 
+
Shortcuts can be easily modified in Krita. You may assign a main shortcut and also an alternative shortcut to a single command. While customizing shortcuts, the command list is searchable. User will be notified for conflicting commands.
+
 
+
=== Dockers ===
+
 
+
Dockers are tool option panels which can be drag-and-dropped in Krita. You may put them wherever you want and resize them horizontally and vertically. Mutiple dockers can be grouped in a shared space and switch between them by tabs. By right-clicking on the title area of any panels you can easily add or remove panels from a complete list. A docker can also be collapsed to save space while not used.
+
 
+
=== Palette ===
+
 
+
There are two kinds of palettes in Krita: the ordinary palette for color presents which is a docker, and the not-so-ordinary palette for quick access to color selector, color history and favorite brushes. This quick access palette can be called up by right-clicking anywhere on the canvas, which liberate the artist from interruption in switching among colors and tools, thus provides an immersive user experience. Favorite brushes can be added to the palette by clicking on the toolbar option: "Save to Palette".
+
 
+
=== Brush System ===
+
 
+
Krita has a powerful and highly adjustable brush system modeled on various existing real-world drawing tools. In brush settings different genre of tools are grouped separately, each of them has tens of specified options which allow artists to adjust them throughly.
+
 
+
On the right-side area of the brush setting window is a sketchpad to test the current brush settings, you may assign any background color and gradient to the sketchpad by clicking the icons below it.
+
 
+
While using brush tool ("Paint with brushes" in toolbox), brush size can be easily adjusted by holding Shift and drag brush-tip horizontally on the canvas, by holding Ctrl while using brush tool you may quick-switch to pick a color. Right-click for quick palette, holding middle-click to move canvas. Quick sliders for Opacity, Flow and Size  can be found on Krita's brush toolbar.
