At least don't think they are working correctly, may have been changed in the last update.

When I clicked on the brush tool in the tool panel before the brush it was set on (whatever it was last) would be on the tip of my brush and on my artboard. Now I can only see it in the tool panel.

My eraser also used to be a circle when I had it set to eraser and now it is the eraser. I truly do not like that because it is hard to be precise. 

I had Adobe help me with another issue last week. Thank you Garima Khanna! Not sure if it is a setting that changed all of this but if it is I can't find it. 

Thank you in advance

I figured it out, I needed to change my cursor in preferences from standard to normal.  Whew, it was making me batty!
