    sometimes when im using the eraser or paintbrush tool, the cursor changes from #2 to #1 without me going into edit-preferences. why does it do that? and how do i change it back? :o

    Happens to me sometimes too. I actually like it for cropping, so I'd love to know how to change it :o

    When does it change cursors? On it's own?

    Only times that I can think of where it changes like that is if you zoom in and out of the picture. (in your case, zooming out for that effect) Or, if the pic is in the same zoom, and you change the master diameter of the brush, etc.

    nah there are times that the cursor actually just changes to that, whether you're using the crop tool, brush tool, anything tool. I've never been able to notice a common occurrence every time it happens, just seems to be random. Of course it can't REALLY be random, but I can't link it to anything.

    :roflw:

    I used to shut CS2 down thinking it was going to 'reset' it... then one time I got so pissed, I just slammed my hands down on the keyboard and it changed. I went from :mad: to :eek3: and starting pressing buttons to figure out what it was. Once I got it... I was :eek5:
