    I wonder how flexible the Dial really is. Imagine the routine of a Illustrator — he/she will use specific tools in order to Illustrate, such as the Brush, Pen tool, etc... all of these tools have been hardwired into them via keyboard shortcuts.

    The dial would replace the keyboard shortcuts, but will it make it faster/easier than actually just using the keyboard shortcuts? Can you pick a tool via 1 press or will it be 3 levels deep?

    I don't see the point of Dial as is right now, since the keybinds are way more efficient. The only improvement would be the freedom of placement for your keybinds, meaning that your keyboard/numeric pad will always be placed horizontally on the most handy spot while the Dial can be placed anywhere you like.

    What do you think?
