Photoshop: Reflect brush size changes from pen pressure in cursor size

Why are brush size changes that result from tablet pen pressure not reflected in the brush cursor size (diameter)?

It even seems like a bug, since "tilt" is reflected in cursor size and shape changes, but size from pen pressure is simply not implemented.

The brush size does of course change on pen pressure, but there is no other visual feedback than the brush stroke itself, after a stroke is started. I use the pen switch for "click", not the tip, and would like to see the brush size, as a result from my pen pressure, before I start a stroke.

Good grief, no. Do you realize how distracting that would be to constantly have your brush size bouncing all over the place?

Also, both Mac and Windows are not very quick at updating the cursor, especially for large cursors.

Ok, perhaps not for all of us. For me it would be a great improvement though, and it is very easily made to be configurable. Settings -> cursors -> show brush size on/off?

And "tilt" changes are implemented. Does that not "bounce" as well? I hardly see the difference as far as that is concerned.
