So here is my problem. I draw images by hand and scan them into photoshop to touch them up with the wacom tablet. Often I'll want to take a piece of the drawing and rotate it, stretch it out, or move it. I select the piece, take the move tool (v) and do what I need to do. I then either press enter and move the piece, or I move it before pressing enter and applying the transformation.
Either way, what often happens is that the piece doesn't deselect, and I can't move it or alter it further in any way. After this happens, I also can't switch between layers, or I can, but what's on the canvas doesn't respond at all. I can still save, and select different tools in the program, but I can't work on anything. Also it might be relevant that I'm working with the frame animation window, and these drawings occupy layers that I'm using as animation frames. Selecting different animation frames also gives no response.
The only thing that works is to save what I'm working on and restart the program. Half the time this problem doesn't occur, but since I'm performing these actions a lot, it really slows me down. Photoshop works fine otherwise it's just this one thing that's bugging me. Has anyone else had this kind of problem?
I have a student edition of CS4 and I've installed the latest patch for it. 11.0.2
My system specs:
Processor: AMD FX(tm)-6100 Six-Core Processor 3.30 GHz
Ram: 8 GB
64 bit operating system
Graphics: AMD Radeon HD 6670
hope that's enough info, any help is greatly appreciated, thanks.
