Nudging a Layer Changes Blending Modes

  • Updated 2 years ago
I'm using Elements 15 in Windows 7 Professional.

If I have a layer selected that I want to nudge using the cursor keys with the Move Tool selected, instead of nudging the layer, it scrolls through the layer blend modes instead.

I've tried selecting other tools, then going back to the Move tool, and I've tried selecting other layers, then going back to the layer I want to nudge. Nothing makes it "let go" of scrolling of the blend options.

Hi Wayne,  

That tool needs to be reset.  After loading an image (you must do this), on the far-right is a ? and next to it is a pull-down menu.  On that menu is "reset".  Try that.  Then if it doesn't behave right away, close the program and reopen it.  Tools that conflict with another tool need to be reset.
