I always had the following intermittent problem using Fireworks. For some reason sometimes when I start to use the application I cannot select any of the tools.....nothing basically happens even though all other Commanda & Filters are fully functional! Closing the application and restarting it does not fix the problem.
Not I thought it was a problem with my old machine but today I upgraded to a new Dell XPS Studio machine and after I installed and upgraded my Adobe products the exact same thing happened. This time Photoshop and Illustrator were also affected. I have to reboot my machine to sort the problem.
Does anyone have a fix for this as it's annoying?
No idea but be sure you have any updates available installed.
