When keyboard capital lock is ON the eraser toll turns idle.
What version of Photoshop, OS Version, Graphics Card(s) and RAM?
Have you tried resetting your Photoshop preferences (Preferences/General, click the button at the bottom and restart PS)?
Can you please define "idle"? Does it...
- Move but not work?
Hi if the caps lock is on it is not working? on my side, I have 2021 Photoshop working in both ways either capslock is off or on...regards
Thanks for your reply; yes, it still not working although I updated to the latest rev I(Adobe Photoshop CC 2022 v188.8.131.524). I have windows 11 x64 updated to the latest as well.
Yes, it replaces the eraser symbol with a (+) plus sign like the” Rectangular Marquee” but does not do anything. It does however move with the mouse normally.
Can you send a screenshot of an image where this isnt working? Be sure to include the entire screen including layers panel shown.
The + symbol is normal when using the Caps Lock key.
I'm wondering if you are on the correct layer or a layer mask when using.
Thanks for your reply,
I did not know that when in CAPS the eraser changes to (+) sign AS A NORMAL BEHAVIOUR (Why, ?, since other tools stay unchanged); because in this case I am not able to center “the normally circle shape” around a specific area to be erased. I only can do it by groping, which makes it erroneous (or by removing the CAPS , of course).
Thank you for your time.
Any brush based tool uses this feature with Caps activating a "Precision" cursor which is the direct center of the brush.
It's been that way for decades.
Turn off the caps if you need to see the brush outline.
