Made a new workspace and got my controls back. I think you only lose it in the essentials workspace.

This is really very important shortcut we use very frequently. Pressing Alt+right click drag makes my work slower. Adobe must fix this issue asap. Thanks!

this is a known issue.

 

The team is aware of this and will have a fix in an upcoming release.

 

Temp workaround is to remove new addition of Key Board Short Cut for layer boundary.

This actually solved all of the sizing problems ... brush, brackets, remove tool, clone tool, etc.  So thank you very much.

I'm so glad to hear from folks that the solution I posted, building on what Cory showed, has helped folks out, but can someone please tell me how I turn off notifications of new postings?  I checked the "email me when someone replies" button but I can't find anywhere in this thread on how to turn that off now.  For any who haven't seen this easy step-by-step solution that has worked for a number of people here, it's at https://community.adobe.com/t5/photoshop-beta-bugs/p-bracket-keys-not-changing-brush-size/idc-p/1471... (faster than searching through all these pages to find it instead, lol).

I updated to PS Beta 25.11 and lost the ability to change my regular brush and remove tool size using the short cut keys [ or ] or the wheel on my Wacom tablet. I can only change but using the slider in the brush properties dropdown menu for brush and the tool menu for the remove tool . Super inconvenient and lots more time and guessing on brush size.

1. Edit > Keyboard Shorcuts >

2. Scroll all the way down

3. Delete the shortcuts for 'Show Previous Layer Boundry' and 'Show Next Layer Boundry'

Worked on macOS beta for me. Will test on Windows when I get home tonight.

 

I appreciate the continuous improvements being made to Photoshop. However, I wanted to provide some feedback regarding the feature that will display the previous/next layer boundary. While this feature might be useful in certain scenarios, I find it challenging to see its necessity in my workflow.

 

As an avid user, I frequently change brush sizes for a variety of tasks, including photo retouching, composing/compositing scenes, creating collages, coloring illustrations, drawing/line work, digital painting, making adjustments on artwork, retouching type or logos, designing icons, preparing vector art, adjusting traps for separations, character design, making patterns, and adjusting layer and filter masks. In essence, changing brush sizes is an integral part of my process almost every time I use Photoshop.

 

Thank you for considering this feedback. I believe that focusing on enhancing core functionalities like brush resizing would greatly benefit many users.
