Hi,

Is it possible to make a script that you can toggle Pen pressure on / off
by just one keystroke, for example "tab/tabulator" key?

By normal keyboard shortcut it's not possbile?

Is it also possible to add brush "shape dynamics / size jitter" to one keyboard shortcut key the same way, via script?

No, there is currently no keyboard shortcut for those options.
And I'm not even sure if they are settable independent from other brush/tool settings in a script or action.

Incredible that something so important to using brushes doesn't have a shortcut!

If you create Tool or Brush presets, you can record actions (or scripts) to select the presets. Then assign keyboard shortcuts to call the Actions or Scripts.

Thanks Jeffrey for the tip, but it's not a solution.

It would still be more intuitive to remember just one hotkey (or two, if you want to affect shape dynamics) to toggle Pen pressure on / off, rather than to remember 20 actions key combinations (or 40), if you use 10 different brushes.

I've made the topic a feature request. My answer above is the current workaround.
