    Hand Tool


      My hand tool became stuck, could not get pointer tool or any other tool to work.  What causes this? I finally got it to become free, after continually clicking on almost everything on the toolbars.

          This keeps happening to me, too.  I can work for maybe 5 to 10 minutes, and then my cursor will turn into the hand tool and stay that way.  Once It resolved itself after several minutes.  The rest of the time, I have to leave the program and restart. 


          One forum response said to delete user preferences.  I did that, but the hand tool issue came back within 5 minutes.

            Yeah, I was deleting my preferences until that stopped working.  The solution is pretty simple.  It seems to be a problem after viewing a Flash file fullscreen. Just tap the spacebar to clear it.


            Hope this helps.  I know how frustrating it is.
