Those settings are tool options. Although you can get the current tool's settings I have never been able to come up with a way to set them directly via scripting. To change those settings you have to create, load, and select tool presets.
I had hoped that would work comparably to the Brush Tip Shape settings, but no such luck …
Thanks for setting that straight!

Even with the brush tool you can only set some of the tip settings. Most of those you can only set if the brush is not a sampled brush. But brush tool settings like blend mode, opacity, etc can only be set with tool presets.
Questions about setting tool options come up so often that I should see if I can come up with a way to create tool presets on the fly.

Yeah, I remember there was a thread some time ago where this came up with regard to rotating Brushes with keyboard shortcuts.
Thanks again for your expertise!
