When setting features on Brush Settings panel it is inconvenient to choose a brush from the last used brushes. It would be really nice if recent brushes row could be set on the top of Brush Setting panel.
You don't need this, you already have it. Here's where: When selecting a brush, you will be presented with a list of types of brushes in a panel, and in that panel, it has a right-arrow, click that. That will show a shortcut menu, which the last clickable entry is "save brush".
So you can save a brush, go to it again and you will know which brush was used. Are you new to this? Whenever a new Elements comes out, we have newbies. It's okay to be new to Adobe. We're here to guide you. Come back for more if you need us. Thanks for coming today.
