It would be great to be able to "update" a brush in your tools presets menu. Sometimes i want to change the setting of a brush I select and want to keep those changes. Having an Update feature when you right click on a tool preset would be great.

Also while Im at it, it would be great to be able to Color code tool presets the same way you can with layers to help organize a set of tools. Most artist i know have a large list of tools and having color code tool preset would make it easier. Perhaps different color from the layers colors or perhaps / custom images, or the ability to choose any color you want would be great. Then again just having color at all would be great.

Presets don't work so well if you keep changing the meaning (especially if you use scripting). And that is sort of inherent in the term "pre set". That would be sort of like specifying "BMW" where "BMW" means "Ford" on Monday and "Toyota" on Friday.

There are other requests for better ways to organize presets, including color coding and folders.

Alright thanks Adobe. I just find myself always deleting my presets i dont want anymore, and i want to replace them with new settings. Its not an organization feature, its a replace feature.
