Adding a second zipper

I'm playing around with the Curve mode and using the preset brush 'IMM ZipperP'
and I can't for the life of me figure out how to commit the brush and paint a second zipper.

Sometimes it works, but I'm unsure what I'm doing to release the curve edit function in order to freely create a second zipper.

It's not essential, I know I can commit via the subtool with split to parts and merge down every element (tedious). Or I can merge it to a Dynamesh object, but this isn't my intention either. I simply want two or more zipper objects. How to tell ZBrush you're done with the first?

I believe the snapshot button is for that.

Just click on the model once and it will draw a new one when you draw again. The default curve snap range is pretty high so it took me a while to figure it out as well because every time I drew a new one it replaced the old one. Just click on an area away from the first curve you drew and you will be fine.

Had some issues with that too. Use the mouse to do the click - that makes sure the cursor doesn't move too much while clicking.

The easiest fix is just open up stroke > curve modifiers and lower the "curve snap distance" which is 60 by default. I keep it around 15.

I see, that does it. ZBrush is such an unconventional tool at times.
Where is this snapshot button? Despite not needing it right now.

Also, where on ZBrush central are you supposed to direct your questions?
They don't appear to have a dedicated Q&A segment of the site.

And one last thing.
If I want to import a ton of sci-fi models for custom multi insert brushes, is there a way to tell ZBrush to load all the models at once and to keep them as seperate subtools?

Shortcut for snapshot is the "5" key.

You could use one of these.
