I want to make the Brush Tip rotate along with the Rotate View Tool, since way it works now screws up my brush strokes.
(compare the two strokes here - the strokes at the right are done with the view rotated: http://img221.imageshack.us/img221/2016/psnightmare.jpg )
I have found out how to change the Brush Tip rotation on this page:
But how do I get the angle value from the Rotate View Tool ... ?
As far as I can tell, all you can script with the Rotate View Tool is selecting the tool itself. Unlike most other tools you can't even use tool presets with the Rotate View Tool. So I don't think it is possible to set or get the angle of the view.
You might also want to test setting the brush tip rotation with your brush settings. There can be issues if the brush is a sampled brush and the brush in your screenshot looks like a sampled brushed to me.
Hello Michael, thanks for pointing out that I was at a dead end -- I guess the Adobe programmers will have to fix this one themselves :-)
