STOP CHANGING MY TOOL...when I select a brush! I used to be able to stay with the paintbrush tool and change the style of the paintbrush. Now when I try to change the style, it also changes to a different tool! I don't want to use the smudge tool, I want my paint tool :-(

Hi David,
What are you actually doing in the application?  How are you changing the style?  Are you using shortcut or are you saying that the tool is just changing by itself?  Please share your steps.

Sounds like the preset you're using has the tool saved in it. You can either resave without the tool info or command option click on the preset to load the brush to the current tool.
