Photoshop: Real-time, hotkey control for Brush Rotation

Since you can control the brush size by holding alt/control drag with the pen, there should be something equivalent for brush ROTATION as well.

It looks like people will have to keep this thread active so it garners enough votes. I'm sure with so many of us using brushes in PS, this would be very welcome.

please yes this is the  #1 thing slowing me down. well this and slow LR presets.

i would use rotate key even more than size change. I am always using the size hotkeys when I really only need to rotate..... because I'd rather use a different part of a huge curved brush to get a different angle than have to deal with the horrid procedure for rotating the brush. Only works sometimes though. Not a real solution. keep us posted

This would be such a huge help.  For retouching, being able to change the brush angle on the fly would make such a huge difference, especially when working on hair.  The current interface is insane.

Also how about brush rotation when you CLICK the document? Will it work someday?

Mouse controlled BRUSH ROTATION is a vital for speed. Most PS users work with mouse and not tablets. Hey ADOBE.....please heed to our request and give us a mouse based shortcut for BRUSH ROTATION.
