I seem to have finally switched my brain to using 2.8 shortcuts. However, the switching between weight paint/object/pose mode when painting weights for armature still gives me a lot of trouble.
It used to be so simple and elegant when Ctrl+Tab was just for Weight paint. Now it enters a confusing pie menu where I have to manually click/point towards the correct section. It adds a whole new step into what should be a very quick operation. Sure, with time I guess I could get used to it, but it seems regressive to actually ADD another step to an previously single-step operation.
I know I've got the option of using 2.79 or even the 2.79 hotkey scheme, but I don't wanna get stuck in the past. Generally I'm up for re-learning interface, it's just this single change that's really bugging me.
Is there really no single-step method to select weight paint mode now?
