    And you got the small dialog to OK deleting preference settings when you trashed the preferences?

    How do you know it is not inverting? Are you zoomed out far enough to see document edge and marching ants (or lack of)?

    and or did you test it by function?

    So you see the marching ants change? To border the edge of your document? But the selection is not acting like pixels are selected?

    You may want to post a full screen capture, and describe exactly what you are trying to do, and where it is not working as you think it should.

    recap:

    You make a selection with the elliptical marquee.

    Then you go Select>Inverse, but you don't see the marching ants change to the border the edge of the doc.

     

    BUT have you continued with the tutorial? And it does not work (or, it works backwards from how it should work?)

     

    Maybe a full screen grab might help.
