    I have a wacom tablet and would like to be able to more precisely choose my tool with the quick buttons on the tablet. With CS3s current set up they group a number of tools together on one hot key. i.e. J= Spot Healing brush, Healing brush, Patch tool, and Red eye tool

    I flip though these tools like vinyl at a record store and would like to be able to just press a button to pick a specific brush from the group rather than get the last one I used.

    I think there is a dialog under the View menu with hot-key preferences. You might be able to get specific tools with those. You could also just make an action, by: creating a new action, record, pick which tool you want and your favorite settings and then stop recording. You have the option to assign actions to a specific key when the first dialog comes up, and then just assign that key to a button on your Wacom. That might be a little confusing, but just play with buttons in the action window (a little tab near your history window) and you can figure it out.

    That actions idea sounds like a good one. I didn't know you could assign them to keys. Having to go through and find it in the list would have been more of a hassle than pulling it out of it's tool bar. I'll look into that, Thanks

    Couldn't you just assign shift+J to a button so that you can toggle through them quickly? Shift+J will first select the last one used (if you are in a different tool set) then toggle through them. You need to select 'Use shift key for tool switch' in the preferences menu.

    Best,
    Helen

    I found exactly what I was looking for, and it may help some of you as well so I will share. :)

    Edit>Menus> Keyboard Shortcuts tab> "Shortcuts For:" drop menu> Tools

    Eureka!

    Wasn't aware of the Shift+ technique. Thats a nifty little trick as well
