Keyboards are for shortcuts

  1. I never thought to remove the decorations from the brushes! Also, worth looking into if you have the newer Wacoms with the radial menus. I spent a few minutes adding my favourite tools to those menus and its shaved valuable time off of my work flow.

  2. On the off chance that somebody will see this, two years later: Is it possible to switch the order of the tools, when you have two tools on the same key?

    I would strongly prefer to have P switch to Pencil first, and Pen second. The only thing I could think of was to delete the shortcut for both of the tools, and then add it again, first for Pencil, and then for Pen, but it didn’t work, Pen is still first.

    I know I can simply give one of them a different shortcut altogether, but P is in a very convenient spot on the keyboard…

    1. Hi J – I’m still here, I promise. Unfortunately, I don’t have an answer for this one. I went into Shortcut Settings and played with things there a little bit, but nothing made any difference. It’s a stumper. I’d be curious to see if anyone else has any ideas. Maybe they’ll post a reply here.

      1. Thanks a lot for the reply! For now, I think I’ll set up a new shortcut for the Real Pencil tool, which is the one I use the most, and see if I start using it or if I just keep reaching for the P key. It looks like most of the number keys are free, so I’ll try 9 which is fairly close on the keyboard.
