Photoshop 21.x: Spring Loaded shortcuts more sensitive - Turn off toggling between tools

If you switch from a tool to another while holding the tool's shortcut button (i.e : switch from brush tool to eraser tool with a shortcut, but holding the "e" key while erasing something) make photoshop toggle between those tools. Some people may make use of it, but not me. In addition, the keyboard shortcut often lag, making photoshop do the toggle out of nowhere. It's really frustrating especially for Illustrators since I change the brush and eraser tool often. Please do something about it.

This is so frustrating. I can't believe it's been so many months of people saying how aggravating this issue is but there is still no option to just turn it off. It was frustratingly over-sensitive, similar to how it currently is, when the feature was first added to photoshop years ago, then it mercifully was toned down (though it took a long while). I requested the option to disable it all those years ago too with no response.

Hey guys,

I'm an illustrator on PS21. This is a related obstacle--

Whenever I press my tool shortcut more than once, it toggles to the sub-tool. Like the brush to the pencil tool, and the eraser to magic eraser. I do it by accident all the time and trips me up! Can I turn this toggle off?

Thanks, 

Emily

NVM just needed to enable "Use shift key for tool switch" under preferences> tools

This feature is anything but useful. It drives me insane, whoever created this things without having the slightest thought to add an option to disable it can have all of my hate. 

And sadly, to be honest, I'm not even surprised that Adobe blatantly ignores this issue, much like the UI sizing (they can't even add more options other than 100% and 200%... would love to have a 75% option since I have no intentions of messing my entire OS for just Photoshop), pen sensibility problems (slightest pressure and you have max brush size), and such.  

But! They have this new useless feature, so nice, so pretty! ...........

Adobe, fix you're damn current problems, don't add more.

This "feature" is utterly crippling. It's slowed my workflow to about a third of its previous speed. Please fix this urgently. We're paying good money for this application.

I made an acccount just to voice out my concerns here. It's really driving me nuts! It's a huge workflow disruption as I rely on hotkeys to switch tools, and to have Photoshop automatically switch it back when I didn't want to is very frustrating! Please, please PLEASE give us an option to disable this!
