Question

The new Foliage tool is awwweeessooooomme.

All the different "Configurations" are great. And I can think of so many non-foliage uses for it. Thank you already making it so versatile!

 

One request for future improvement that already comes to mind: instead of selecting only one or two symbols, it would be awesome if we could select a Symbol Folder and have the tool use all the symbols it contains. This would make it similar to @DomC's FANTASTIC Marionette note for filling an area with symbols, found here:

I'm sure multiple Symbol support would be useful for numerous other applications as well. It'd make a great V2.0 addition!
