Can I put a suggestion forward to have an option in keyboard shortcuts to switch between "Current Layer", "Current & Below" and "All Layers". As the former 2 I am always switching between.


The same with healing brush/spot healing brush. An option to toggle the "Sample all layers" checkbox.


The mixer brush has this feature (as screenshot), so I would like the option for the other tools please.

I’d vote twice for this one if I could.

Can you repost a screenshot since there is not any you mentioned about...

I didn't check particulary but you mean you'd like to switch between "Current Layer", "Current & Below" and "All Layers" only for 3 tools they have avilable that option so: 'Clone Stamp', 'Healing Brush' and 'Eydroper'?

Regarding shortcut for 'Sample All Layers', an option is now avialable between some other tools for mentioned 'Mixer Brush Tool'. Which exact ones else you'd like it was avialable for?
