Why can't the user edit brushes already existing in a set? I have a set I've been using for years and wish I could change the brush settings individually without having to recreate the entire set. Am I missing something here? As I understand it, once you've made and pasted a new brush in a set, you can't tweak a settting without creating a new brush, deleting the old one and moving the new one in its place. I'd be glad to be proven wrong and show me how.

If you change the settings of an existing brush the only way to save them is to create a new brush.
There are no other ways.

Or just save it to the same name, overwriting the original brush.

It just makes a new one with the same name, did not replace.

According to Chris Cox in another thread, Adobe intentionally made it so brushes can't be changed for 'reasons'. Since they didn't change the behavior this time around with all the other brush changes they made, it is unlikely this will ever be changed.

I just found something else. A brush I created over a year ago does not let me see the settings I used or adjust it. What's the point of having brush settings if you can't adjust them!!
