Hi I just got this version of photoshop and I can't find the option to take contiguous off on the magic wand tool. Did they move the check boxes?

You would look in the Options bar at the top. If it's not there, checkmark Window menu > Options or tell us what version you have and include a screen shot.

I am having a similar problem. I hit some key or combo and my text-based check boxes changed to these same icons. I cannot figure out what I did to change it! Does anyone know what option to fix to get my check boxes back for the wand tool?
