I am working with a multi-layer image in photoshop and my paint bucket tool has stopped working. My cursor icon is a circle with a slash when paint bucket is selected. I have tried resetting the tool, II have done the most recent update... Any thoughts?

Make sure a layer is selected in the layers panel

Make sure the selection is large enough to use or is cleared for the entire document.

Take a look at the top tool bar and verify the settings are not affecting it, pay attention to blend mode and opacity.

Look at blend mode and opacity in the layers panel as well.

If all else fails, capture your entire screen with any collapsed layers expanded then share it here in the forum.

The paint bucket reads "3D Material Drop Tool". This looks like you need to have a 3D object for using the Paint Bucket.

Estas en lo cierto la herramienta de bote de pintura no está funcionando, ajala arreglen su funcionamiento porque si haces colocas algun color o un punto o escribes algo y luego intestan usar en el área el bote de pintura debería regarte pintura de un color plano escogido en toda la capa o en el área selecionada pero ahora esta dejando lo que había y modificandolo con el color o por parches no selecionados, es un desarrollo de una nueva herramienta, pero deberían dejarnos la herramienta tal como estaba y agregar la nueva pero esta se necesita tal como estaba

OMG! Thank you! This fixed the problem. I had clicked on 3D for an object earlier and clicked undo, but evidently I was still in 3D. I have been looking for solutions for over 45 minutes.
