The ability to use the bracket keys to resize my brushes intermittently stops working and sometimes starts working again sometimes not.

Howdy Brett,

Can I ask you a few questions about the problem you're having? Is this with Photoshop, Lightroom, or Elements? What OS are you on (10.6.7 or WinXP or Vista or ???)? Is there any particular task you're engaged in when you notice these keys not responding? I'm assuming you're running on a standard (American) English keyboard and with the (American) English application, but if there's a different combo, could you let me know that as well?

So far that's been caused by bugs in third party plugins, and external applications that steal keystrokes.
