Lightroom CC: Adjustment Brush settings reset button in panel and other brush bits.

I like to use Lightroom with touchscreen with pen, so looking for more small options that don't require keyboard shortcuts for when workspace is limited.

I find it quite annoying when I'm using the brush adjustment on wildly different images that I'd have no fast way to completely reset the parameters that the brush is on, my only recourse is to double tap each slider.

Whilst on the subject of settings, perhaps settings can be saved as presets similar to global presets we have for when we frequently revisit the same brush.

A toggle to show/hide the overlay would be appreciated for when I'm not using a keyboard, just something faster than right-clicking or going through the menus.

And finally, for when pen pressure isn't required, a toggle for pen pressure use for when I simply want full opacity on my brush rather than gradual change.

These small things would really help with workflow and accuracy.

How hasn't this been upvoted or something? Yes. I agree with every single one of these suggestions!

100%. Lightroom cloud-based for windows/mac should have a tablet mode that takes advantage of the streamlined UI of the ipad/android apps (e.g. double-finger press instead of alt key to see detail masking and more intuitive brushes).

ALSO, I'm just finding out that Lightroom cloud doesn't give me one-button reset of my brushes. I can't believe this is even a thing. I'm supposed to create a new brush, then go through resetting one-by-one across all my adjustments just to lay down a new brush area? 

The cloud team and the ipad/android app teams need to start trading notes. Going into 2020, I far prefer to do my touchscreen adjustments on a $300 ChromeOS tablet with hilariously underpowered hardware than a $3000 Lenovo X1 Yoga. I can move much faster through my edits on the tablet.
