Once I enter the Refine Edge dialog, it won't let me use its brush since the latest update to my MacBook Pro, Yosemite 10.10.2. I'm using Photoshop CC. I get a white circle with a slash through it instead of a brush to further refine the edge. That little icon doesn't show up in my screen print though.

I can't see your Layers panel. What sort of layer do you have selected?

Have you tried restoring your preferences: http://blogs.adobe.com/crawlspace/201...

It's just a background copy layer. The instructions for resetting PS6 preferences doesn't seem to match the PS CC 2014 libraries, so I don't know how to reset them.

YES, it worked! Thanks so much Jeffery. I'm not sure what went wrong but I'm glad it's working again.
