  • Help With Cursers Problem

    Hi, All of a sudden my paintbruh and cloning brush cursers and not showing up as they should be, I have a cross instead of the actual brush size which is very frustrating. I have been into preferances and checked that the brush size box is ticked and it is...would anyone know what's happened?.....Thanks in andavance val..............

    Engaging the Caps Lock key causes this behavior. Hit it again and you'll be back "to normal."

    Not to worry: Just about everyone who ever used Photoshop has run into this one. Welcome to the club!

        I have been quietly pulling my hair out over this same problem for as long as I've been using PS, I always go into preferences and set it to the opposite and then back again when it happens the next time.

        This should be printed on the outside of the PS box.

          Hi Smet, Doesn't it just drive you crazy, Now I know what is doing it of course it's o.k. I was doing the same as you and going into preferances and changing it, then changing it back etc. etc. but this wouldn't always work so I would turn the computer off in disgust and go back to it the next day and find it working alright. Of course it was because I didn't have to caps lock on the next day. As you say I think they should mention it somewhere where you can easily see it. I am sure even the long time users have this problem......Isn't this a wonderful site .....Val

              Photoshop acting crazy
              by mfgriggs
              Hi Guys
              I have a problem with the photoshop. While I am using the healing tool I select the brush size. The brush size is represented by a circle. From time to time and for no particulary reason the circle changes to a very small cross hair. In order to get my circle back I have to...

              Cursor change from brush size to cross (precise)
              by soleah
              This happens to me every now and then. The painting cursor in PS would suddenly change from brush size to a cross. Result, I couldn't figure out if brush size is too large for the area I'm fixing.

              The painting cursor setting in Display&Cursor preferences is still set at "brush...

              PS7 Brush size bug
              by jaz
              Periodically, PS7 loses the setting which shows the current brush, graphically as you size it. I have the cursors options set to brush size. It works 90% of the time but every once in a while it just shows the crosshair no matter what size I make the brush. I have to quit and reload photoshop to get...

              I experienced problems with my cursor changing from a brush, to a cursor while making the brush size bigger and smaller.

              I tracked down this thread that has a large amount of people experiencing the same problems, with a variety of software. Does anyone know of a solution for it? It...
