    I was editing a pic, some of the tools wouldn't operate, anything that required the sliders to increase the px of the required tool, clone stamp and spot healing for example - then I found the reason why, I had left the Caps Lock on - strange!

    Always caps lock or tab key if the tools disappear.

    I can see you starting a new thread next week enquiring why some of your tools won't operate - I will however, reply saying your caps lock is on, and look far superior :grin:

    another one that caught me out a few times was when I was using any brush tool was that I use the [] square brackets to increase/decrease brush size. I would put my fingers on the keyboard but look at the brush circle on the screen. Several times I would clip the adjacent `P` key and I would lose the brush shape.... What I was doing without realising was switching to `pen` tool . PITA :)

    keyboard shortcuts are great until you accidentally press an unknown one!

    That CAPS lock key drove me mad one afternoon trying to use the clone brush, reset the tool, reset all tools, then restarted the PC a few times. Was about to even uninstall PS until I asked on the forum.......

    I was about to ask on the forum, then a little bird in my head reminded me I had typed LEAVES as a template, and there I was, back at the top of my game in Photoshop, LOL.
