thanks for your help. It is still not working. I was wondering where it is the trial version if it does not allow you all the regular options.
Download your trial version from Adobe.com
I have never heard about any problems with trial version unless there was a installation issue, make sure your computer meets with the minimum requirements for CS4 if thats not fulfilled your CS 4 will not work.
Please recheck that you are doing everything right by reading this link ....
If you are talking about the icons in the main TOOL BOX, press and hold the tool for a second for the flyout tools to open; don't just click the tool.
