I went in to Illustrator CS4 today to do some work and for some reason my brush, eraser, pencil, etc. cursors are not displaying correctly. For example when I select a brush normally I get a circle (as the brush size) for my cursor. Now I am getting a little icon of an actual paintbrush with a little x to the right of it. This makes it so I have no idea what size my brush looks like until I paint something.... not sure what key combination I accidently pressed, but this is extremely frustrating. I don't see any settings to change it back.
Does anyone know how I can get it back to display the actual brush as the cursor?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
You can change the cursor with the caps lock key. But maybe you're just using a different brush. The blob brush normally shows that size-indicator-symbol, the "normal" brush shows that brush+cross-symbol.
But it is a good feature request for certain brushes, but I am not certain how it would work for pattern, scatter or art brushes?
