I still have lightroom 3 wich works great but a couple of weeks ago I got a problem with the spot removal tool. Short explanation, it's not the same.
I don'd know what I did but I dont have the regular spot removel tool.
WHen I shoot the spot removal tool the cursor dissapear when I get over the picture like it hides behind the image.
When I click I get a very tiny circle and when I drag it makes an arrow. WHat is up with that?
Please help because now the spot removing tool is completely useless.
Not sure what you are expecting to happen but what you describes sounds like some of the options that are available with the tool.
In the bottom left of your image, when using the Spot Removal tool, there is an option labled "Tool Overlay", from the way you describe it, it sound like it is currently set to "Auto", try changing it to "Always"
After you select the Spot Removal tool, some options appear directly below, including the Size of the spot to be removed, try moving this slider to the right.
