    Question Couple Questions! Int 3

    1) Is there a way to change my brush size without going up the annoying little slider with my Intuos 3 tablet?

    2) I click the button on the pen by mistake and I manage to select a different brush. Then I'll go back and pick a smaller brush but then need to go to brush presets and put pen pressure settings back on. Anyway around this? Can I it as a seperate brush with the settings on?

    3) Can I change the rubber size without going to the rubber icon? Because when I click the mouse pen button to show the brush types it's not for the rubber.

    Thank you.

    1. Yes, it depends on the program and how you want to do it.
    You can use the two keys on your pad and change them to [ and ] which are the brush increase and decrease for Photoshop, Painter, Easy Paint tool Sai.

    2. Not sure what you mean here, usually if you have a preset saved it will switch back. Also you can disable those buttons if you don't want to use them on the pen. The switch also allows for brush sizing in certain programs CTRL+Alt and dragging the stylus up and down works for brush sizing in Open Canvas, Easy Paint tool Sai, and Painter.

    3. Changing the size of your rubber? o_O;;

    Rubber is the term for Eraser in Britain if I remember correctly.

    In Photoshop, I don't think there's any way to change the size or function of the eraser tool without selecting it, sorry.

    here's what I've found, in Photoshop only:

    1) you can slide your finger on the slider, but you can also tap the top part and bottom part. they act like buttons. i found that is easier to control than sliding

    3) if you turn the pen upside down to bring up eraser tool, if you change brush size now, this applies to the eraser tool.

    hope helps someone.

    cheers

    I disabled the clicker on the pen (in the Wacom settings panel) because of frequent accidental clicks.

    As mentioned you can map your cintiq buttons to emulate the keyboard keys "[" and "]" which control brush size. Or you can just use the keyboard keys themselves.
