im experiencing this now suddenly... what is stabilizer and how do i turn it off?

 

I am using clone brush tool but my pointer only turns into the brush when i start clicking. It was not like this a few days ago and I assume I hit some key stroke or something to turn something or off..

The Stabilizer can be de/activated in the context bar of the different brush tools. It enables you to draw smoother brush strokes. You can adjust the grade of stabiiization with the sliders of the "Rope Mode" and the "Window Mode", both on the right side of the "Stabilizer" check box.

By the way, my brush cursor doesn't disappear if I activate the Stabilizer.

The Brush -preview-  disappears (for me) when the Stabilizer is active, as soon as you start drawing. It is there until the brush moves.

Hm, it doesn't seem so in my case. The brush preview is there before I start drawing. It only sometimes lags a little bit when I start drawing. But not every time. It also seems to depend on the length of the rope. A longer rope tends to slow down the brush preview a bit sometimes. This is at least what I see.
