Re-trying some of the exercises I did by hand, in Krita with Wacom
I tried not to ctrl+z as much as possible, though it's hard to resist!
At first in krita I was rotating the canvas using 4-6, and I also tried using fingers on the Wacom trackpad. However, I found that using:
space + click => pan
space + shift + click => spin
worked much more smoothly and allowing me to keep the pen hand active.
