Photoshop Tool Presets: Tool Highlight

The highlight of your selected to disappears when you change brush sizes, or if you change tools. It would be nice if the last selected tool would always be highlighted no matter what tool you select.

Yes, because you have changed the tool settings, and the preset no longer matches the tool settings you are using. If the tool preset remains highlighted, that would be misleading. The most we could do is a different color highlight to indicate "current" versus "last selected but doesn't match".

Thanks for the quick response! That makes sense. Would it be possible to reselect the last tool preset when you return to the tool?

The tools already remember their last used settings, but reverting back to the last used preset (which may not be the last tool settings) would be destructive -- so we couldn't do that by default, and I'm not even sure it's explainable as an option/preference.
