The existing 'Pick Block' feature allows for speedy building in both creative and survival modes. It helps remove slower inventory management from the building process, and I often find myself running a few blocks to 'Pick Block' something rather than opening my inventory while I'm building.
My idea is to expand this with a similar 'Pick Tool' feature. The idea being on a key binding press, the game will pick the relevant tool (provided it can be found) to mine the block selected. E.g. if the user is looking at Oak Planks, and they press the key binding, the game will pull their axe into the current selected slot. If they're looking at Stone Bricks, it'll pull their pickaxe.
I think this binding could default to something like 'Ctrl + Middle Click', as this would match up with the default for the 'Pick Block' system and almost expand it, as opposed to it becoming a whole new binding.
If the player has multiple tools of one type: pick the first tool found (similar to bows picking arrows if there aren't arrows directly next to it).
If the player has the correct tool in hotbar (but not selected): select the correct hotbar slot (like 'Pick Block' for blocks)
