how do you set up undo's so that you dont have to keep going back to the history pallete to undo more than once.

what is the hotkey for changing brush hardness and softness

undo / redo = ctrl-z
step back in history = ctrl-alt-z
step forward in history = ctrl-shift-z

Here's some keyboard shortcuts you might find useful for brushes if you don't already know.

-The [ ] keys decrease and increase the brush diameter.
-The { } keys decrease and increase the softness of a brush.
-The , . keys toggle between NEXT and PREVIOUS brushes.
-The < > keys toggles between FIRST and LAST brush.
-The F5 key toggles the BRUSH PALLETE on and off.
-Use the numeric keys to change brush opacity, ie: 50 for 50%, etc.

Right clicking in the working area pulls up the brush pallete also.

Thanks Ikarus... some of those might be handy for me. ;)

couple more questions
what is the hotkey to go between full screan mode and out

also, the { } keys control the softness, but is there a hotkey that controls the shape to actualy change the shape and not just the softness from circle to a circlish with square edges? i hope that made sense haha ;p

Ain't W the Magic Wand Tool?

I'd say F is the key.

yeah, f toggles between full screen and normal...

another useful shortcut to remember (hope it hasnt been mentioned) would be
ctrl + alt + 0 which sets zoom to 100 percent (zoom actual pixels) as well as
ctrl + + (zoom in) and
ctrl + - (zoom out)

w is for wand
f is for almost fullscrean but the tool bar and layer pallete are still there. anyway to get rid of em?
