Hey Guys,

I can't see the outline of my brush anymore, I tried everything.

- reset by brush tools

- reinstalled photoshop

- and toggle back and forth on caps lock

It only shows the crosshair.. I have no idea on what to do next..

can you help?

Hi JeppeVolander,

Sorry that you're having trouble using the Brush tool in Photoshop. Please take a look at this discussion Photoshop: My brush cursor is showing a cross instead of a circle (turn off CAPS LOCK) | Photoshop Family Customer Commu… and let us know if that helps.

Thanks,

Akash

Hi,

So you go to the Preferences menu and choose Cursors, and sure enough, you’ve got Normal Brush Tip chosen as your preference, but for some strange reason, it’s not showing your brush size; it’s showing that stupid crosshair. Here’s the problem: Check your Caps Lock key. It’s turned on, and turning it on changes your Brush cursor from displaying brush size to displaying the crosshair. This is actually a feature to be used when you need to see the precise center of your brush. The problem is it’s assigned to the Caps Lock key, so every time you turn on Caps Lock when you’re working with type, you just temporarily switched your Brush cursor (or any cursor for that matter).
