Can't set brush to even number of pixels [SOLVED]
I'm trying to set a new rectangle brush to have an exact size of 2x2 pixels. I've tried a variation of both brush editor radius and tool options brush size combinations to no avail. When I increase the brush size, the brush skips from a rectangle of size 1x1 to 3x3 to 5x5 and so on. Any ideas on how to achieve a 2x2 square brush?

2 solutions:
1.) Make sure you're not using the brush described in the brush window as "Pixel (3x3)", instead, find the "Pixel (1x1 square) (1 x 1)" brush. Mine is below the orange sun-like brush.
2.) Make a new image size 2x2. Change image mode to grayscale. Fill the pixels with black and save as "square2.gbr" under your gimp/2.x/brushes/basic folder.
