Hi everyone, 

 

I am fairly new to Photoshop - taking a class actually - and the very basic function of the healing brush is not working at all on the layer on top of the smart object. I already reset the tool, quit Photoshop and opened it again and nothing. I have the latest version as I just started a few weeks ago. Any suggestions for how to fix this?

 

Thank you!

Take a look at this overview: https://community.adobe.com/t5/photoshop-ecosystem-discussions/using-the-healing-brush-with-photosho...

It most likely is due to the source layer setting. If it is on Current Layer change that to Layer Below or all layers.

Ever since the Hedge Fund Boys decided to make us all RENT Photoshop forever, they QUITE OBVIOUSLY also are not only taking all the program's former users for a financial ride, but also the program has become NOTORIOUSLY broken, slow and kludgy.

 

In the middle of many sessions certain tools just stop working.  The "spot healing" tool is a case in point.  I CAN use it if I save my file (NO LAYERS AT ALL, just a Background Layer, so thanks for the stupid and useless FAUX "advice"), quit Photoshop and then re-start the program (which now often takes 30 seconds -- what is this, 1995?), that tool "magically" starts working again.

 

Tools are going "offline" all the time.  I am MASSIVELY auditioning other software.  Adobe's poor (pathetic) tech people keep asking STUPID questions  (Yes, I have a VERY recent PC, Win-10 totally updated, a terrific Nvidia GPU with TOTALLY updated drivers, yada yada yada).   The techs obviously have the rotten job of trying to DEFER blame for what is really wrong:  Photoshop is a clusterF****.      I can't wait to take it off my system forever.   BROKEN, BROKEN, BROKEN,  with more and more non-integrated buggy "features" added.

 

WHAT. A.  JOKE.
