Yes!!! :star_struck: :green_heart: :tada: :confetti_ball:
Thanks for the awesome update, guys!!
(And I’ve already joined the Discord!)

Edit: I found a bug with the brush. I started the editor with zoom at 67% (that’s what it was at last time I was there, so my browser remembered), then zoomed to about 90% and started drawing. The brush strokes were clipped into a specific region of the stage, and became pixilated after I released the mouse button. I tried zooming to 100%, but that didn’t help. So I recorded this GIF (at 100%):

Setting zoom to 100% and then refreshing fixed the issue.
Edit 2: The path cursor lacks a hotkey.
