What is happening to my brush?

For some strange reason, my brush cursor occasionally disappears while working on an image. The only way to restore it is to reboot the computer. Am I accidentally bumping some secret key? Has this happened to anyone else?

Ken

EDIT: I just figured it out. I've been accidentally hitting the CAPS key).

That usually happens to me in the midst of a high-detail lasso selection . I only wish I could blame it on someone else.

When PS is doing things wierd, it's usually because the preference file has got corrupted, its almost always worth clearing it out.

To clear it, close PS, then on re-launch press Ctrl+Shift+Alt PS will ask if you if its OK to delete your preference file, click OK.

PS creates a new preference file automatically.

The thing is you'll have lost all your preferences. Because of this, its always worth keeping a good copy of your preference file, Then once your file has been cleared, and the problem resolved, you can re-instate your preferences.

gary,

interesting. you dont happen to know if that works for psp too do you? i've got a bit of weird lately with it. getting some crashes lately, especially when using clone or retouch tools for long periods. i've also added a lot of plugins in the last month or two. do the plugins get pre-loaded with these programs and therefore eat a bit of ram? cause it seems like i'm running out of ram more these days and the program may be crashing because of swap file use or something closely related.

Sorry Craig, no experience whatsoever with PSP, so can't say.

Yeah, it never stops does it.

All I'd need to pay for my wants, is the sudden death of a long lost millionaire relative, who leaves me all their money.

I'm not holding my breath while I wait.

Hope you have better luck than me.

Gary.
