If this is that easy, I am really looking forward to see some of your work at top row as well.
Other than that I personally think your issue is good to be discussed in the community forum, as it is more general.
I am not an admin, just someone who loves to see things a bit more relaxed.
zBrush has became much more than “just” a sculpting app and I am happy that top row selects the bits from every direction and use.
I am also happy, if top row points my to a good tutorial, or brush set as well.
If this is a serious problem for you, Anthony jones, I really would recommand to open a new thread in community forum to get deeper into discussion.
Just my two cents.
