I have PS CS2.

I was just in PS yesterday with no problems.

Today, both in RAW conversion, and inside PS, all I get is the white hand to move around the image.

I pressed every tool there is and all I get is the white hand.

I don't want the white hand, I want all my tools.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Check your CapsLock key first ...

Did that first thing.

Pushed every other key on the keyboard as well, no luck.

Is the file locked/read-only? (Shouldn't matter, I know). Otherwise, I suggest a full restart -- that does seem to solve about 90% of computer problems ...

I'll try the full restart.

Weird stuff.

This has happened to me before - seems to happen randomly, but I've read it's a memory issue.

It has always resolved itself rather quickly - I usually shut down and restart and then it's repaired.

Try hitting the spacebar; if that doesn't work, purge the PS prefs.

I just did a total restart on my 'puter and it seems to have fixed the problem.

Thanks again.

when I was building computers I told my clients, if something goes wrong. Reboot first and if that doesnt work, panic, calm down then call me :)

Great -- you can send your royalty payment directly to Dell... ;-)
