When I start using a brush the palette goes away and I can't change the size with the arrow keys. Brush functionality used to be so easy in CS2. Now it seems to be a convoluted mess.

Try using the left and right bracket keys. Brush KBSC and behaviors have changed tremendously over time.

I suggest you check out the default kbsc page for more on using brushes with kbsc, and while you're there, you might want to look at the user guide in the drawing and painting section.
