PSP2019 bug? Smart Selection Brush

Postby Mike-PowerfulSignal » Tue May 07, 2019 5:27 pm

Starting a few days ago PaintShop Pro 2019 Ultimate has been behaving oddly when I choose the Smart Selection Brush tool:

• The brush only selects what it touches, not similar features. (It leaves a "trail" the shape of the tool.)

• Once I've chosen the Smart Selection Brush, I'm unable to switch to any other tools; PSP is locked on the Smart Selection Brush. Most of the time I can't even close the image I'm working with or exit PSP—I have to use the Windows Task Manager to kill the process.

I'm wondering if Microsoft pushed a Windows update that's broken PSP. Is anyone else having the same problem?

Try saving your workspace as a named workspace, THEN use File > Preferences > Reset Preferences. Then restore your named workspace. If you go this route, do not neglect to do all three steps.

Thanks, ehume. Does this procedure save all my customizations (menus, keyboard, etc.)?

Why not experiment and learn for yourself. Save your current workspace. Then make some new customisations , new custom toolbars etc and save them and repeat with and prepare a number of different customised workspaces. Save them all and then practise loading the previous workspaces and see what saves and what does not. All it will cost you is a little bit of time , but a great learning experience.

No. Resetting saves nothing. That is why YOU save the workspace as a named workspace first. After you reset everything, go back and load your named workspace. THAT will bring back your customizations. (I'm a strong believer in customizations.)

Edit: hartpaul gives good advice. Follow it.
