What is the cause and fix for this:
I am clicked on that layer.
I choose the Marquee tool.
I click around the area I want to select.
Phtoshop, not me, creates these inexplicable unwanted selection areas opposite of what I want, they are unwanted.
At times, these unselected or deselected areas run off the page.
At times I begin or end my selection off the canvas NOT always.
I have lived with this for months (maybe years) but it has got to stop.
Anyone ANYone?? know what is causeing this??
The first thing to try is a reset of the Marquee tool by right clicking on it in the Tools Option bar at the top. Choose Reset Tool.
It usually fixes forgotten adjustments and other glitches that causes a tool to malfunction.
Ctrl click if you own a Mac.
