Sculpt Workflow: Tab Tools > Brush - Investigation

This task is part of the Sculpting Workflow task set.

In Sculpt Mode, there is a Tools tab with a Brush panel - which is bloated with more than half the features not used often. These could be rearranged to be more logical, grouped or changed and requires a little investigation to see how we can optimize them. After discussion, each will be made into a new task:

Proposed Issues and tasks:
 

  1. [Suggestion] New menu order. Why? Order is disjointed on priority in the workflow.
  2. [Task] Advanced Zip group. Why? To make the bloat less so common use if uniquely shown with the rest as secondary advanced options - halving the bloat and increasing useability friendliness.
  3. [Suggestion] Default settings should have Interface>Menus: Open on Mouse Over turned ON. Why? Instead of clicking open menus, you just move the mouse over to the brushes, it opens and viola, click to select. Also works for all other menus based on icons - it's only natural to use the movement instead of clicking around to navigate. Save time, save thinking about where to click to open panels, and just move and use menus.
  4. [Non issue] overlay tips could include keyboard workflow. Why? Just to show that you can like most professional sculpters would use the hotkeys to do quick changes to radius and strength unless they have a pen... then again this may just be useless.
