Hi. Just upgraded to PS6 and all the polygonal lasso tool, paint bucket tool and others have a small black arrow on the top left of the tool. How do I get rid of it. Sorry for inquiring for what I'm sure is a basic function (thus the parenthetical in the topic title).

Hi Jeffrey,

This is as designed. The pointer and position in the upper left was standardized across tools. This indicates the precise point where the tool will be applied.
