This is a small nuisance and a suggestion. When I am using the Clone tool to retouch a photo, suddenly the cursor (circle for cloning) changes to a standard cursor (arrow) right after Mac OSX makes a visible Notification on the desktop (which it does for any number of cases: new email, receiving messages, calendar reminder, etc.). I think I have to re-click the clone tool (or click out of and then back into the tool) in order to get the clone circle back again. I think the MAC OS Notification simply places itself "on top" (or becomes the "foreground") of all objects on the Desktop and that may be why the cursor changes. I would hazard a guess that any application that wants to be "on top" and be seen "in front" of anything else might cause the same behaviour, though I have not checked it out.
My curiosity has won out, so I have to ask... In the set of panels on the right, Color, Layers and Transform the cursor is always an arrow except over the trashcan it changes to a double ended arrow. This usually means that it's a two way operation. I can delete a layer, can I also resurrect a layer from this? If not what is the reason for the cursor change?
