do you mean making your own custom brushes? - If so, yes -- take a look at: viewtopic.php?f=13&t=32558&p=185907

Unfortunately, no.

As a workaround. I usually make guide lines (using Add Points) or grids (using the Grid tool) in their own layers so I can scale and position them over or under the art points/shapes/layers I'm aligning. Unfortunately, no snapping but it works well enough most of the time.

Tip: If you enable Paths in the layer's Quick Settings, the guides are visible even where they're not stroked and not selected.

For guides I use a lot, I keep a folder for them so I don't have to keep re-creating them, and I can import them into any project.

As mentioned above, there is an editable Grid that has snapping. It's fine for quickly aligning elements at regular intervals but it's also awkward to edit. And because every layer has its own local grid settings, it's use is somewhat limited between multiple layers. I use like to use it to align my SBDs but not for much else.

Hope this helps.
