Tool Preset Selected History

I would like to suggest that Adobe implement some way of indicating what tool preset is/was selected, even if the size has been changed. Maybe a new panel that just lists brush and tool history. OR to add more information to the history panel so that it lists "tool set (name here) selected."

I tend to use a lot of similar looking tool presets in PS CC. Sometimes after using a tool preset for 10 minutes, constantly adjusting the size as I paint, I discover that I love that tool and want to take note of the name for use in future paintings. However, if I have forgotten the tool preset name, I must click through the tool preset list and paint with each similar tool until I figure out which tool it was I had selected. This is a huge time drain.

Any artist who uses those large tool sets from Kyle T. Webster will sympathize with this.

I sympathize! I'd love to see an overhaul of the brush and tool presets implementation to something more legible when dealing with a large amount of presets. I like your "recent brushes" idea.
