We noticed a bug when you use Swap Stylus Tip : it does not remind the configuration of your second tip each time you restart TVPaint. By default, it's a pen brush with size = 5. So even if you configure it as an Oil brush with size = 50, when you restart TVPaint, the Pen brush is back again.

It's in our "to fix list" :)
fixed, wait for next version. :)

I wanted to add one comment to the thread. I use a different method for eraser in part because I want to save the current "draw smoothing" setting for the tool when I call the eraser so that the "draw smoothing" for the eraser can be set to zero for more precise control. When I return to the previous tool, I want the "draw smoothing" restored (along with all other tool parameters.)

I was wondering if the next version update will manage this same "draw smoothing" control for the eraser and the temporarily swapped tool?

A discussion on tool parameters including the issue of "draw smoothing" control can be found HERE.
