I would love some advice. I'm an illustrator. I'm often using the keyboard shortcuts; B for brush, P for pen etc. Suddenly they're not "sticking". I hit B and it quickly reverts back to the previous tool selected. I need to now choose the tool from the panel on the left each time but it's taking twice as long. Could this be a keyboard probem? My keyboard and Mac are all new, only a few months old.
Thanks in advance for any idea that could help.

What is the Photoshop > Prefereces > Tools > Spring-loaded Tool Shortcuts-setting?
Oh I'll look now...
Have you considered unchecking it altogether?
No but I'm not very savvy at this. Won't unchecking it mean I will not be able to use those shortcuts? Is that what you think I should try, unchecking springloaded shortcuts- will the shortcuts still be able to be used?
Why ask and not simply try?
Edit: If it has no effect on the issue you can always set it back.
True, I'll give it a try with fingers crossed. Thanks!
Did the setting make a difference?
Well I didn't do it just yet since I'm working on something I need to get in today and I'll admit to being a bit hesitant to play around with settings without my son around. H can help me out of a jam if needed. I'm easily confused:D But I do plan to do it later!
I think it worked! I'm so grateful thank you!
