Photoshop: Problem with Spot Healing Brush tool (CS5 for Mac)

When I use the Spot Healing Brush Tool in Photoshop Extended CS5 on the new 2011 MacBook Pro I have to do command 0 to clear the spot healing brush because it does not clear on its own and I don't know. On my old Macbook I had no problems with this.

Hi David, I'm not following you. What are you trying to clear with the Spot Healing Brush? Cmd + 0 is the command for View>Fit on Screen. What does that have to do with the Spot Healing Brush?

David,

I don't know if you solved your problem yet, but as I had the same problem, here is the solution that worked for me:

Go to Photoshop > Preferences > Performance

and uncheck Enable Open GL drawing.

Restart PS. This should do the trick (It worked for me, anyway).

That might indicate a video card driver issue. Which card and which OS are you running on?

I have an all-new MacBook Air:

13-inch : 128GB
1.7GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor
4GB memory
128GB flash storage
Intel HD Graphics 3000

Any ideas?

May be related to driver bug in Lion 10.7.2.

Fingers crossed that the next OS update will improve this. When 10.7.3 comes out, try turning back on OpenGL and let us know if it works correctly.

David,
It is better to have OpenGL enabled. See my previous comment - I just found out a few hours ago (I repeat here for you)

Go on and Enable OpenGl drawing (Photoshop > Preferences > Performance)
Then go to Advanced Settings and uncheck Vertical Sync.
This worked for me.

Please let me know if it works for you, too.

John
