Eraser tool won't work? Eraser tool won't work? graywolf12 (TechnicalUser) (OP) 2 Jul 07 17:52 HELP! I opened up my Photoshop CS today and my Eraser, Clone, pencil, tools, etc. won't work?the top box of tools works fine but the second box doesn't work.Any ideas?Thanks RE: Eraser tool won't work? blueark (TechnicalUser) 2 Jul 07 19:44 Are you getting an error message when you use these tools, are they inactive, or do they just have no visible effect? Try creating a new RGB image and see if they work.If they do, you may have been working on a hidden/locked layer, or perhaps part of the image may have been selected, but you may have been working on a masked area.Also check the layers and channels palettes to make sure you're working on the correct part of your image. You may, for example, be trying to clone part of a blank layer mask, which wouldn't have any real effect.
