- The Stop Rec button is used to stop the recording of a script.
- The Save button will save the current Script Brush script into the standard script folder for later reuse. See the topics on Scripts for more details.

Using the Script Brush : Part 4 - Painting the the Script Brush
- Still with the Script Brush tool selected.
- Click and drag to paint with the recorded stroked.
- Single click to place just one occurrence of the recorded script.
- Besides recording objects as shown here, the Script Brush can be very useful for automating a series of strokes that may be used for texturing. Especially when using the Rec Stroke option so that different brushes and colors can be selected.
- Do note that while the results can look similar to a Clip Brush the Script Brush tool is very different in that the strokes are bring painted each time rather than a image being stamped into place.
