[AP & AD] Use selected brush as an eraser toggle in context toolbar


Recommended Posts

Hi, i would find very useful a "use selected (active) brush as an eraser" quick toggle on the context toolbar in "pixel" personas.

This would improve painting or texturing workflows as in some cases i would prefer to erase with same brush tip to maintain initial texture & look.

 

Yes, there are keyboard shortcuts to quick toggle eraser brush but i would still have to reselect the brush i had first, adjust size and settings, also if not careful one can switch between tools by mistake and be forced to ctrl + z after.

I'd like to see this too, but I think a modifier key instead of (or as well as) a checkbox would be better, since this would mean that you wouldn't need to move the cursor away from the area you're working on. Ctrl (or Cmd on a Mac) doesn't currently seem be assigned to any function for either the Paint Brush Tool or the Erase Brush Tool.
