This is about the only other thing I can think of:
When using my Wacom, my ham-hands would frequently trigger the little clicky thing on the side accidentally, causing all sorts of mischief. So I disabled it.

Or maybe, when you hit the Alt-key to reposition (and here's hoping you do that almost every tap)(no strokes) perhaps you inadvertently hit some other combination?

Just guesses.

Kathleen, Just out of curiosity, have you tried uninstalling and re-installing PS? Also I think Doug mentioned something about deleting the "preferences" file upon launching PS to eliminate the possibility of a corrupted file therein. Just wondering. Tom

I think you might have something there. I've caught myself hitting keys unintentionally before, and I probably have done it many times, but not caught myself doing it.


I did delete the preferences file, but it might be that I'll have to reinstall Photoshop.


Kathleen said she had over 800 megs of RAM. Why is it that Mac users seem to have a lot more RAM than PC users? Just wondering.
