I have the latest PS update.I have opened a PSD image that I previously edited. When I press the marquee tool I get a black square next to the tool bar and the tool is not working. I have tried different layers, unlocked the backgroung layer to no avail. Other tools eg Lasso tool, work. What am I missing?
We're sorry about the trouble with Photoshop while using the Marquee tool. Would you mind telling us which operating system are you working on? Are you facing this issue with all marquee tools (like Rectangular marquee, Elliptical marquee, etc.)? It would be helpful is you could share a screenshot so that we can see the black square you're referring to.
Many thanks for your responses. I reset tools but that had no effect. I went to preferences, performance and PhotoAnt, Ctlshop locked up. I resorted to "Alt Ctrl delete to start again. I am using Windows 10. The black square comes up whenever I put the cursor on any tool but the other tools work. The square disappears when I move the cursor to the image. Screen shot attached,
