Help if you can - When using any brush tool (brush, clone, smudge, etc.) if I hotkey to a non-brush tool (select, marquee, text, etc.), it only switches for a fraction of time and reverts back to the brush. If I press and hold the hotkey, I can use the new tool, but as soon as I release it goes back to brush.
If I choose the non-brush tools manually from the menu, I am able to hotkey normally between non-brush tools, but as soon as I hotkey to brush, I'm caught in the loop above. If I choose the brush manually, it also has the issue above. Once I'm in brush mode, basically hotkeys don't work normally. Hopefully this is not a feature...
I am using Photoshop Defaults in "Keyboard Shortcuts and Menus," Photoshop 2022, I've restarted Photoshop twice, I have some custom brushes and have been using this setup for many months. Just started happening yesterday.
You can try disabling under Preferences > Tools > (untick) Spring-loaded Tool Shortcuts, or you can adjust how u need to hold the hotkey before the feature kicks in (I just disable the bloody thing on mine because it's near impossible to get the right timing)
Thanks Cory, that worked! In the process I noticed several old settings folders of previous Adobe versions, and brushes stored in an older version folder in Program Files which I moved to the newest version. Hopefully al this didn't cause any new issues, but everything seems to be working now with all my brushes as well.
