Brush Hardness Question

Brush Hardness Question
I'm extremely new to using GIMP, so bear with me. I'm trying to figure out how you can adjust the exact hardness of a brush. I see that you can select a brush with a hard edge, or a fuzzy edge, but what if I'd like some middle ground?

While I'm at it, I may as well ask another question as well. I'm used to Jasc Paint Shop Pro 8, and on there you could adjust the "step" of a brush. Is there a way to do that on GIMP?

Also, is there a shape tool where you can create spheres or squares?

RE: Brush Hardness Question
There is a brush editor, to create the "simple" brushes (circles, squares, and some more complicate shapes), and set their "hardness", and their "spacing" (what you call the "step", I think).

- Windows/Dockable Dialogs/Brushes (or Ctrl-Shift-B)
- Click on the "New brush" icon at the bottom

RE: Brush Hardness Question
So I have to go through making a whole new brush, just to change the hardness? Well that's inconvenient.

Matter of taste... this also means that you can have brushes of various hardness and pick the one you want... If you have played with Gimp already, you should be used to select between the various sizes of round brushes, and between the hard and fuzzy ones... same idea, same origin.
