While working on photos, without warning, cursors for the paintbrush and clone tools become crosshairs, even though brush size is still chosen in Preferences. Only closing, and then reopening Photoshop, solves the problem.

Robert,

Don’t ya’ just love those little things that can seemingly sneak up on you from nowhere…like accidentally activating the Caps Lock key? Caps Lock on enables the precise cursors.

No, turning off the Caps_Lock is all you need to do…….

If simply quiting PS and restarting it fixes the problem, then I doubt it’s the caps lock. Quitting PS wouldn’t turn it off.

I suspect the problem may actually be the video driver.

Delete your preferences and trash your ADOBEFNT*.LST files. Then upgrade.

I suspect the original poster’s accuracy in his posting <smile>

Thanks, everyone. Just now back to the forum. I now know that caps locks on gives me those precise cursors, and found that the problem does not leave after closing PS, and then reopening. Must still undo the caps lock. Guess in past I unknowingly undid caps locks, besides reopening.
