I use an Apple Magic Mouse and every-time I use option click to take a sample for the Clone Tool or Healing Brush, Photoshop zooms in or out. In the words of the late great William S. Burroughs .... "It's driving me crazy, it's driving me nuts!" Please help me keep my sanity and keep me on schedule. If there's a solution, it's hiding from me.
Kevin, thanks for the reply but nope, disabling gestures doesn't work. In fact disabling any tool* preference related to window navigation doesn't solve the .... dare I say .... "bug"?
Ok wait, wait. (while writing this I've been trying different things) I just experienced the "bug" switching between the command key and option key depending on wether or not "Zoom with Scroll Wheel" is selected. If "Zoom with Scroll Wheel" is selected, then holding down the option key enables panning while gesturing on the mouse. I typically keep "Zoom with Scroll Wheel" unselected. As you can tell, I don't like zooming or panning going on as I'm randomly gesturing on my mouse while thinking about what I want to do next.
I've looked for a keyboard shortcut to at least try and move the behavior to another key but that doesn't seem to exist. Or at the very least, I can't seem to find it.
*includes Enable Gestures, Overscroll, Enable Flick Panning, Zoom with Scroll Wheel, Animate Zoom, Zoom Resizes Windows, and Zoom Clicked Point to Center.
Yes, I checked them and they seemed normal to me. I went ahead and unchecked everything related to any scrolling and the problem still exists.
I can't imagine that this has always been this way, but perhaps it always has and I never noticed before. That would blow my mind. I've owned and used every version of Photoshop for a Mac since version 3.0
