This is something not supported. Now you need select the weight group in the panel.

Not sure how we can implement the selection inside the grease pencil weight paint.

It used to be possible to select individual bones for weight painting in Grease pencil, but now It's impossible to select individual bones when in weight paint mode. Also, Blender crashes when trying to weight paint in Grease Pencil.
Grease Pencil gets a lot of love and is fantastic, but Weight Painting there needs improvement as well. I hope this can be done.

This issue is still not resolved yet and very important for making bone animation in grease pencil function well. I understand that it is hard having only Antonio on this task. Unfortunately, I am not a developer otherwise I would have gladly helped.
But please make this a high priority task. Thanks, Antonio, for the already made great improvements in Grease Pencil!

@Simone Lipschitz (illussimo) I have added your task as a ToDo for 2.81. For 2.80 no time (and resources) to do it.

@Antonio Vazquez (antoniov): Just noting that I am working on this (almost there...)

@Philipp Oeser (lichtwerk) It seems it is not an easy thing to resolve. In 2.81 this issue is not resolved and in today's built of 2.82 also not. Will it be resolved before 2.82 is released? This is not an unimportant issue. Could it have something to do with Lock Objects mode? That, even when it's unchecked it somehow still blocks bone selection in Grease Pencil's weight paint mode?

I had to postpone this a bit due to other duties, but will check again tomorrow [note to myself: also check if this changed in greasepencil-refactor branch...]

@Philipp Oeser (lichtwerk) Do you see any chance to check this issue in the near future before LTS feature lock? :)

Sorry this slipped under the radar.
My understanding would be that this is a candidate for backporting into LTS once it is fixed/done (not sure if this would technically need to be a bug rather than a TODO though...)
In any case, will dust off the patch that I have lying around here and see if I can get the remaining bits in place...
