Since got new Macbook Air, M1, the tools with Keyboard, is acting very fruity in Photoshop.  It's like you have to first click with mouse on some tool to even get it working or recognized, and even then with keyboard, its not easy, very glitchy, changing from Brush to Clone etc. Anyone else notice this? Thanks.

Thanks Pete, its  23.4.1

 

Any tool, click any tool not work, unless mouse to tool bar then keyboard starts working for tools. Inexplicable. 

Ok took advice and move Prefs to deksop to test.  (usually don't like deleteing prefernces)

 

At fist, discomboulated by the UNBELIEVALABY OBNOXIOUS new spring loaded Tool... thing but I rememberd how to fix that issue:  Just posted about that.

Hi @larry45

Can you give more info on what "tools with keyboard" is referring to?

So far in my testing, keyboard shortcuts are working for me on my M1 macbook pro with Photoshop 23.4.1. 

 

Can you let us know which version of Photoshop you're using?

Have you tried resetting preferences yet?

 

Restore your preferences using this manual method:

If that doesn't solve it, you can quit Photoshop and put the Settings folder back.

Regards,

PG
