I guess I'm stuck using [+] on the sliders until there is a way to map right-click + the ALT key to the tablet without it taking two keys to do it. If someone does figure it out, please provide a link to where you found it on the net. Thanks.
    Have the brush enabled in CS4.

    Press ALT. The eyedropper will pop up.

    With ALT still pressed, press the button on your wacom pen. The eyedropper will vanish and the brush re-size function will kick in.

    I see what you're saying. I haven't had my stylus set up in its default mode since I first got it. I have my stylus buttons set to "step back and step forward" in the history (essentially undo/redo). I guess if I set it back to default your suggestion would be very handy indeed, though to be honest, overcoming the now ingrained twitch response to use those buttons as undo/redo would be more trouble than it's worth, but thanks. I'm sure this will be handy to a lot of other people.

    I have some issues with the autohotkey script you posted, Palomar.
    At the beginning, it works half the time, then, it tends to not working at all.

    Instead of that, the stamp tool is still working ( S hotkey ).
