When using the patch tool, I make the selection, pick my area for it to patch from and it patches just fine.
BUT, the area I selected to be patched is still staying selected with marching ants around it and I have to CTRL-D to deselect before I can patch another area.
Thought it de-selected on old machine and it's driving me crazy trying to retouch some jobs where the patch tool gets a real workout...
Am running CS5 (12.1x64) on a new Windows 7 64 bit machine, using a Wacon Intous 4 w/latest drivers.
Any help is much appreciated - thanks!
ETA: I just checked on our (XP) laptop running 32-bit CS5 and the patch tool worked as I remembered - after patching, the area stayed selected until I hit the left mouse button and selected a different area to patch.
In the words of Homer Simpson.........DOH!
Thanks very much for your help - that was indeed the problem!
Got the same problem also lol. At some point hit that icon without my knowledge. simple solution but was looking all over the place to what I had done... thanks bothering problem gone
