Hi Mathieu!

I am happy to announce that this issue should be resolved in the release of Photoshop that just went live, 19.1. Please open your Creative Cloud desktop app, update Photoshop and give us feedback.

Thank you,

If you have brush presets which are tied to a specific tool, but want to apply them to a different tool, select the tool you want to apply them to then click on the preset while holding down the Cmd+Opt keys (Mac) or Ctrl+Alt keys (Win). This only works on the new 19.1 update.

If you don't want the brush presets associated with specific tools, then uncheck the "Include Tool Settings" checkbox when creating them as previously mentioned.
