Choose How to Cycle Through Tools From The Same Group in Photoshop (Video)

Image
In this quick tip, I will present to you options to change how to cycle through tools from the same group in Photoshop . As you already know, tools in Photoshop are grouped. Tools from the same group have the same keyboard shortcut, right? By default, you must use Shift key to cycle through tools from the same group and activate some other tool then currently active.

You can change configuration from Preferences > Tools .
