Would be very helpful for shadow illustration. For example you need to draw shadows under the dresser with a soft oval brush, but the preview of your brush shows you have the wrong angle

Would be great if you could the shortcut that exists for the clone stamp to rotate. This really does work, but only does  .25° so hold down for about 3 seconds to see.

Rotate Clone Source

Alt + Shift + < or >

Option + Shift + < or >

 

Shift Option < or > would be great to change angle on the fly to get this. and the small rotation of .2° would be perfect already.Screen Shot 2018-06-21 at 85825 AMpng

 

I could draw 100 shadows in the time it takes to 1, and more realistic than above.

your kbsc requires two hands and would be slower than just using the contextual

Good suggestion thanks, but contextual menu does not have live update or numerical value, so you go back & forth alot. The rotation is a little jumpy, so dialing in precise rotation is difficult.  Try the keyboard shortcut for the clone stamp tool so you can see the difference.
