Photoshop CC 2018: How do I see just the Brush Tip Preview?

The brush preview in PS 2018 has changed so now it shows a dragged preview of the brush. I have many a custom brush that are meant to be singularly clicked, not dragged, like stencils. I cannot see which brushes are which anymore, because of this new preview and cannot find a way to change it back. 

PLEASE FIX THIS WITH AN UPDATE ADOBE, IT WAS FINE THE WAY IT WAS.
As you can see, there is NO WAY for me to tell which brush I am using.

The only work around is to go into the detailed brush settings but this is hassle for me when I need to quickly choose a brush.

The brushes worked so well before - all I want to see is the brush tips - in my opinion this is a change too far - please can I get my old style brush pallet back?

You have the option to see just the brush tips. Open the panel menu, make sure brush name and brush stroke are unchecked, uncheck Show Additional Info and you've got exactly what you want. Heck, you can even uncheck Show Recent Presets if you want the real old way of viewing the Brushes panel. Don't create any sets/groups, drag any that fall into sets out on their own, and you can have the old panel that doesn't help you organize anything or know what type of brush/tool you are selecting when you select a brush tip.

It's all customizable by you for you.
