You can set the source for the history brush to any history state in the history panel, not just snapshots.

Yes, but would be even more helpful to have a tool for example:

History Brush Tool (already existing)
Art History Brush Tool (already existing)
Last Step History Brush or Undo History Brush

So you can use History Brush Tool for the last step only without opening the History Panel.

Unfortunately that wouldn't work too well -- because your first paint stroke becomes the undo state, and the next paint stroke wouldn't work as expected. You really need to target a specific history state, so it retains that source and doesn't keep changing sources.

Fair enough.

What about the idea that there is separate tool (let's say it's the "Undo History Brush") that works exactly the same as "History Brush" - but sets the last step as History Source when chosen as set it back to previous History Step when another Tool is selected.

You mean, if, when you activate the tool, it would target the last step as a source? I am wondering if the scripts events manager could not do that?

Would it be more intuitive if the History Brush was set to the last History State by default then? If any other History State is needed, it could be set manually as usual. This would be a lovely addition to Fade Last function as the history Brush could use various opacity to restore the image from the Last Step as needed?
