InDesign :: CS6 Hand Tool Gets Stuck And Can't Use Selection Tool

Sep 7, 2012

In Indesign CS6 using Mountain Lion, the hand tool appears and I can't select or work with any other tool. All I can do is move the document around. After trying the space bar and other key commands I restarted and it worked for a while. Then it happened again. I work on a Macbook pro, so when I removed the mouse and worked only with the trackpad there was no change. When I quit and reopened, no change. I then deleted prefs and restarted and it worked, but it's been happening from time to time. Any other fix without restarting or deleting prefs.

Photoshop :: Cs4 Hand Tool

Oct 31, 2008

i have recently upgraded my computer with a new mb, 8gb ram, clean install of vista 64 bit and cs4. after initial problems with screen lag i installed a new graphics card and all seems to be working fine. problem is using the hand tool. i was accustomed in cs3 to comparing two files side by side, let's say the same image with two different levels of sharpening. i was able to view both images at 100% and using the hand tool move each image independently. this made comparing particular areas of the images easy. in cs4 when i open two images and use the hand tool it moves both images at the same time.

Photoshop :: Hand Tool Bug

Mar 17, 2009

My cursor is showing the hand tool no matter what tool is selected. And the tools of course do not work then. PS restart does not help, I have to restart the PC (Vista 32 Ultimate).

I read about this problem many time in the web. Why isn`t there any solution? Even CS4 11.01 has this bug.

Photoshop :: Hand Tool In CS4

Mar 5, 2009

way to use the hand tool (or spacebar) even if the entire image is visible, like you could do in previous versions. One might wonder why you would want to pan if you can already see the entire image. This comes up when one of your layers is bigger than the main image. If you try to Transform the layer, but the transform handles are off the edge of the screen, you need the hand tool. Otherwise you have to zoom out even further to get at the handles.

Photoshop :: Hand Tool ? PSCS

May 17, 2008

I start up the program (Photoshop CS) the hand tool is selected. No matter what I try I can not select any other tools at all. I've been trying to self teach myself this program for about 6 months and I've never chosen to use the hand tool at all, so I never intentionally set anything to make it default or anything like that.

Photoshop :: Vista, Hand Tool And Lag

Aug 30, 2008

I just got my new computer, which is much better then my last comp. It Had Vista Pre-installed un like my last computer that had XP. Photo shop runs perfectly fine until I use the Hand tool to move about the image. After that the Brushes lags a good half second behind where i make the mark. If I minimize then maximize photo shop the problem is gone. But i Use the hand tool ALL the time and minimizing and maximizing repeatedly is not a viable solution.

Photoshop :: Hand Tool Not Working Properly?

Mar 27, 2012

For some bizarre reason, no matter what tool I select in the tool bar the only icon that will show up on the canvas is the hand tool, I can't change it and consequently I can't do anything but move the image around.

I have installed all the updates and patches, I have tried everything I can think of to solve it and get back to work but no other tools will work.

Photoshop :: Program Getting Stuck On Hand Tool?

Mar 27, 2013

Occasionally the cursor becomes stuck on the hand or move tool.  I can click on other tools but they do not respond.  The system is not completely frozen, just the cursor/tool.  The only way to fix it so far is to restart the computer.  Plus it is happening more often now.
I really need a solution since I fear I am spending more time. Restarting computer than actual work!

Photoshop :: CS4 Hand Tool Slow Compared To CS3

Nov 26, 2008

I use the hand tool to "slide" and image under CS3, the image movement is very smooth and without a glitch. If I use the same hand tool under CS4, the image movement is jumpy and erratic. There does not seem to be any "use hardware acceleration" option as is available in bridge.

I find this makes it rather difficult to move the image quickly and smoothly while I edit a large image looking for flaws (for example, dust spots on scanned negatives).

Photoshop :: CS6 Stuck On Hand Tool In ACR With Mac / Mountain Lion?

Sep 19, 2012

Photoshop CS6 gets stuck in "hand mode" after being open for a few hours. Suddenly, I can't use liquefy because Photoshop gets stuck in hand mode. I can't use ACR to the full potential because I can't use the adjustment brush because all I have is the hand tool. I try to open files, but all I get is the hand tool!
I know it's not an issue of pressing the space bar, I have tried that. I have closed all the Adobe programs (Bridge, Lightroom, Photoshop), then re-opened Photoshop and it does not go away. It only goes away after re-starting the computer, but that is not acceptable. I am on a 17" Macbook Pro, Mountain Lion 10.8.1, using CS6 products.
