Hello all,

I noticed yesterday that my Freehand selection tool has stopped working, along with all the Marquee tools. Curiously the Rectangular one works to a point. It will draw a selection but nothing can be done with it when done. The others won't do that, the selection immediately disappears as soon as I release the mouse button. 

Does anyone have any ideas as to why and how I get it to work properly? 

This morning I uninstalled AD and re-installed, hoping that might solve the issue, but it doesn't.

Check your Feather setting in the Context Toolbar.

Hi Walt,

That seems to be the problem. It was set at 1045 for some reason. Brought it down to 0 and they all seem to work fine now.

Thanks Walt, once again you've pulled me out of the fire!! :)
