Let's say I'm using the 'Paintbrush, Opacity 70%, Hardness 075, Size 4.00' as my "standard outline tool". 
Can I some how save that preference (and any other tool such as "Specific Eraser Op. 100%, Hard. 100,

I'd like to be able to make maybe 5 specific tools:
-Outline Brush
-Small Eraser
-Big Eraser
-Detailed Color brush

Did you try the tool presets? Available from windows / dialogues. There you can save specific tool options 
as you want it. I'm not sure for the hotkeys option though.

Thaaaank you SIR! :D That's perfect, it's a bit messy setting up the presets but I think I'll get the hang 
of it soon! Is there a way to out up a third shelf? Im lazy and don't want to switch between Presets and 
my Layers xD

I knew about the presets but was wondering about the shortcut part the
other day. Did you find a way to assign a shortcut to a specific
preset, or do you keep the dock opened on the side and always change
the preset by clicking in it?
I think to be able to keep the brush but go from one preset to another
for instance with shortcuts would be helpful.


I havn't tried it out yet, but so far I'v felt comfortable just switching tabs. Also I havn't even come up 
with what to draw.. :( I'v got so much stuff in my head that I don't know where to begin.. I want to create a 
whole fre*kin' world!!
