Turning off caps lock, enlarging the brush size, and changing the cursor settings do not work for me.
Caps lock doesn't affect it.
The brush settings are set to standard, not precise. In fact, it doesn't matter what setting I use, it's always a crosshair. The only time it changes is if I turn on "use crosshair when painting. Then it's always a circle with a crosshair.
And enlarging it turns it back to a circle, but as soon as I move the brush, it goes back to a crosshair.
I am SERIOUSLY annoyed by this, because it did not do this 2 hours ago.
I've turned "Use Hardware acceleration" on and off. Didn't affect it.
The eye dropper tool shows an eye dropper, but as soon as I move it, it turns into a circle with a crosshair.
How can I fix this?
What is your Photoshop version, and does it have all its updates?
What operating system are you using?
What are your cursor settings in Preferences?
Are you using a tablet?
I have tried them all. None of them affect the cursor. It's always a cross hair. The only time it isn't, is when I turn on show crosshair in brush tip.
I can't find the edit button, but I want to make a correction. No matter what settings I set in cursor preferences, it's always a crosshair.

Ugh. Nevermind. A simple reboot fixed it.
Same issue with 23.5.3.
