I have this annoying issue with photoshop since cs6.
I alway work using keyboard shortcuts and when I select a tool, for example the selection tool "M", and I cancel a portion of layer with canc/delete key, automatically photoshop turn back on the previously used tool. It happens 8 times out of 10.
I heard many people had this issue with cs6 blaming the ram but I'm using the latest cc version and I'm running 16gb of ram.
The issue is pretty annoying cause is slowing down my working flow and it forces me to click the tool with the mouse everytime.
Is there any possible fix to this problem that you may know?
So often people try to say something isn't an issue... this is absolutely a bug. It may be a "feature" but more often than not, it doesnt work correctly. I've lost count how many times I use a keyboard shortcut only for it to revert back to the previous tool repeatedly. As suggested by another user (c.pfaffenbichler), I ultimately ended up disabling/unchecking the Spring-Loaded Tool box/setting in the Tools Preferences in Photoshop and so far it has taken care of the problem of this "feature" smh
