About one year ago, I asked EM about the feature of painting a selection with a brush.
They answered, to take this into consideration... I was in good hope, this would show up in version 7, but unfortunatelly – no.
This would really speed up the painting process and creativity without fiddling around and having a mess with selections.
E.g PS, Affinity Photo and CLSP have it. You can paint a selection and by lifting off the pen, it automatically generates a selection. Further brushing adds to it and with the alt/option - key you paint remove it. (Craig Mullins is constantly using this when painting in PS ...!)
So please, please, implement it, too. Don't wait until version 8.
