Please change keyboard shortcut for changing brush size using drag to ‘Ctrl+Alt+Drag’ in Window ver photoshop. Current shortcut key is not appropriate or easy to use for Windows users. Do all Adobe team use Mac OS only? To think that it was ok to set short cut for brush size like this, that must be so. 

 

I use bracket shortcuts because I have no choice but each time I have to reach out to press bracket keys, my workflow gets interrupted. It’s very inconvenient and frustrating as my work speed is slow. Since I am already using other keys as shortcuts for other needed tools, I cannot assign changing brush size to any other keys. 

 

For me to be able to use ‘Ctrl+Alt+drag’ to change brush size will be a huge improvement to my efficiency and usability of photoshop. I strongly request for an update here.

 

Other tools such as Clip Studio, Paint Tool Sai, Medibang Paint etc. are all using ‘Ctrl+Alt+drag’ as brush size change shortcut. I do not understand why Adobe won’t follow the industry standard here. There are many digital drawers who use photoshop as their main drawing tool want this change. 

 

Please update photoshop to change I suggested or give me the ability to update the shortcut myself.

I think on the PC its ALT+ RIGHT CLICK and drag horizontally. TRY that... hope it works. Another option albeit not as fast is to right click and the use the slider wherever you are on the canvas.

 

hope this helps!

it seems very similar to pressing control+option on the Mac. Seems like that is the fastest way!

By @BokSungah

 

Using Ctrl and Alt with dragging already does something in Photoshop:

  • Ctrl: shortcut for the Move tool
  • Alt: copy
  • Ctrl+Alt+Drag will copy pixels

 

Switch to Move tool

Control (except when Hand or any shape tool is selected)

Command (except when Hand or any shape

Move copy of selection

Move tool + Alt-drag selection

Move tool + Option-drag selection

 

 

"many users want to use 'ctrl+alt+drag' shortcut key [for brush size] "

I would want it to be optional — if Adobe changes it at all.

i know that but i dont want that feature with ctrl+alt+drag 

Why did you fix the brush modification shortcut with the Alt+right mouse button+brush drag key and make it impossible to edit or modify it with other shortcuts?

Please change to Ctrl+Alt+BrushDrag as soon as possible, or update the shortcut key functions that magnifies and reduces for brush size so that user can change it into other shortcutkeys
