I'm having a glitch in my system, i think.... Its completely random...My cursor for brush tools are only showing a crosshair, no circle around it. And yes, i have checked a thousand times under edit//preferences that they are showing full brush.... Sometimes the circle is there, sometimes i only have a cross hair. I have no idea why!!! It will just suddenly disappear. this is on my new lap top with vista. I have cs3 also loaded on my pc with xp, and do not have any problems. so i think it has to do with the vista on my laptop. Any ideas? or is there something i could possibly be hitting on the laptop keyboard that is doing that....which i can understand, since I am new to the laptop this week. any ideas would be appreciated. I still muddle along, having used ps for so long i have a good idea of my working diameter, but at times, i really need precision!!! help!
