Keeping Track of the Last Brush Used When Switching Between Tools

Recommended Posts

I was just reading topic started in December 2016 asking how to keep track of the last brush used when switching between tools. I skipped all the way to the end of the thread. The latest post to this topic requesting help or expressing frustration over the loss of the last brush used was February 2022. 

I here to say that as of July 27, 2022 this is still an issue. Given the number of people expressing frustration with this I am surprised that it doesn't appear to have been addressed. It is a very frustrating issue that is seriously slowing down and interrupting my work flow. I see a lot of people complaining that other companies and free programs keep track of the last brush used. I'm going to chime in to say that I've never experienced this going all the way back to Macromedia Freehand. 

As a non-programmer this seems like a simple thing to fix. As a designer highlighting the last brush used when I return to a tool makes my job much more easier. It stream lines workflow and improves efficiency. 

Is there any plan to address this? 

Thank you.

Serif does not tell us about their future plans. You will know it's been addressed when there's a retail or beta release that implements it.
