Have you installed all the Photoshop updates?
What OS version are you using?
Have you changed your keyboard shortcuts to assign that shortcut to something else?
Are you using something (like a laptop) that reassigns the F keys by default?

I work in the cloud so I have the newest version. But I solved the problem. When you download Photoshop CS6, in "actions" (handelingen) are a lot of presets. Adobe use the same short-keys here for other actions! Not handy!!! So I deleted these short-keys and now I can work with example shift F6 the Feather tool. In the future is would be nice if Adobe uses other (unique) short-keys!
Thank you for answering.

Hi Jo,

Which actions are interfering here? I'd like to know so I can fix it for other users. Also, I'm guessing that you're using the Dutch version of the app, is that right?

I had the same problem and somehow realized "number lock" ofr "function lock" was on, which solved the problem.
