I am having a problem with Step Backward / Forward tools. Since recently I am not able to use them as they're kinda blocked.

I remember it worked at first but then I (from what I remember) I accidentally pressed something (which I really don't remember) and it stopped working. So, now, I can't use the tools any way.

Check Photoshop's preferences, and make sure you have more than one history state.
Then check the document and make sure you aren't in a funny state (like QuickMask).

Seems like the history states went to "1". Changed it and works fine now. Thanks for the help.

For whoever happens to see this and has the same problem, go to Edit ---> Preferences ---> Performance

Find (in the pop-up box) "History states" and change the number to something other than "1".
