I have just upgraded to the latest photoshop and I'm having problems with using the bracket keys for brush sizes. If i go to my brush palette and use the sliders the brackets will work for one use only.Does anyone know how to solve this problem?

Which application are you using?
Which version?
Which OS version?
Are you using a localized keyboard (non-English)?

Howdy Joe,

Could you answer Chris' questions.  And also, are you using any sort of tablet or keyboard emulator or keyboard- or screen-capture application?  If so, could you try disabling that and seeing if the shortcut keys then work?

I too have had the [ ] brush size key shortcuts randomly stop in CS 5, 5.5 and CC2017 (x64, for Win 7 Pro x64). Manually adjusting the brush size seems to make the [ ] work again for a bit

Hi Terry,

Do you have a tablet connected to your machine?  What kind (and language) keyboard are you using?  Any screen-capture apps running (even in the background)?
