Quickly swapping from Selection tool to last brush

Post by David_Fine » 29 Nov 2017, 01:41

Is there an easy way to quickly swap between the Magic Wand Selection tool and the last brush used? I can do it by clicking on the buttons, but it's a bit fiddly and I want to very quickly swap between the two, so a single key to go back and forth would be much quicker, if that's possible. I don't see any keyboard command for selecting either in preferences.

D is the shortcut to use the Stroke. For selections, you should be able to assign a shortcut to selection : wand, so you would just have to hit the right keys.

Great. Thank you. Is there a keyboard option to switch between layers up and down? That is, so I would select an area on one layer, hit a key to move up to the layer above, draw on it, hit a key to move back down to the layer below and then work on that and so on.

Up and down arrows?

Seriously, have a look into the Keyboard Shortcuts list, nearly everything you could wish for is already there.

Thanks. Yes, I do look, but sometimes I'm not clear on what to look for. I found it now.

There is some scripts in this panel that may help you : viewtopic.php?f=11&t=9927
There is one shortcut for selection, unselection and going back to brush. Same for transform tools (it's modified scripts from svengali)

As I'm highly interested in animation workflows, I'm open to scripting new TVP functions for individuals and studios. Please don't hesitate to contact me!
