    Workbench Mode > toolbar enhancements

    1. Make the tool size slider pressure sensitive so that when trying to change by 1 point it is easy.
    lightest pressure = slow change (maybe 1 point up or down per 3mm of movement)
    heaviest pressure = fast change (maybe 5 points up or down per 1mm movement)

    2. Undo and Redo buttons in workbench mode would be great!

    3. Add Cut, Copy, & Paste buttons to the workbench mode.

    4. Add a shortcuts section to the workbench toolbar that any tool or color or whatever can be dropped into so that it becomes a new button on the toolbar.

    It is very good idea. Changing the size of a 1 pixel tool is often annoying and enter it from the keyboard tiring and inefficient. Point number 1 is absolutely justified.

    You guys might want to try out the Artrage Pen-Only Toolbar linked to in my sig. It's a mini-UI that runs "on top/separte" from Artrage that allows you to do all/most of the things you are asking for while in Workbench mode. It's free. Might be worth a shot. It's exactly what I use in Workbench mode to have undo/redo available all the time, cut/copy/paste, as well have very easy access to all my tools with a quick-strike button.

    I love using the workbench mode, except for lack of undo/redo. Is it correct the Pen-Only toolbar is for windows only?

    Yeah, sadly. It's because the program in which the Toolbar itself is written (Auto Hotkey) is PC only. If only Mac's ran AutoHotkey, it'd be available for everyone.
