My problem
Some times I want to draw some precise lines (e.g. holding shift to create straight lines) with a big brush. Unfortunately, the cursor for the brush is just a big circle, which makes it very difficult to pick a particular pixel because you don't know precisely where the brush centre is. At the moment I'm quickly switching to "pick colour" mode to place the cursor when I want, to then turn off pick colour (without picking any colour) and keep mouse in place. But this trick doesn't work with the eraser ("pick colour" doesn't activate with the same shortcut).

A suggestion to solve it
Maybe you can change the UI of the brush circle to incorporate a dot (pixel) in the centre. That way it'll be trivial to place the centre of the brush at the exact pixel that you want.

Thanks for your time!

Good one for the request list as well. This will make the tool more precise. Thank you.
