Help ! I am modifying an image, in Expert mode on Elements for Mac 11, everything is fine. Then all of a sudden the tools don't work. I click on the clone tool and when I pass the cursor over the image, only the little hand appears and I can't copy anything by pressing option-click ! its really frustrating. I close the image, reopen it and its still "locked" Then the effect disappears and the program goes back to normal operation after 5 minutes or so. What is happening?
As your issue is with Photoshop Elements, but was posted to the Photoshop>General Discussions Forum, I will Move it to the proper forum.
Your links and any e-mail subscriptions will follow along perfectly, but you will find that you are in the Photoshop Elements Forum, where other PsE users can help you.
It sounds like something is holding down your space bar. Pressing the space bar is the shortcut for activating the hand tool no matter what other tool is active. Make sure nothing is pressing on it, and if you still see the hand tool, give the space bar a whack.
Thank you, I will keep that in mind if it happens again !
