Develop Module - Brushes
Add the ability to switch between the brush and eraser similar to the "X" key when painting on a mask in Photoshop.
Then add "A" and "B" configurations for the Eraser

Holding down the Alt key while using the adjustment brush will change to the Erase brush.

Whoops, should have also mentioned it's the Option key if you happen to be on a Mac...

I also would like to have a keyboard shortcut to permanently switch to the eraser brush (and back), very much. Honestly I do not understand why this does not exist. I know it's possible to press the Alt key but I don't like that I need to keep the ALT key pressed all the time especially if I have to change the brush size while working with the eraser brush.

Alt [ or Alt ] changes the Eraser size with the brush selected Shift Alt [ or ] changes the feathering of the Eraser when the brush is selected.
