I recently updated to the GIMP version (above). Today when I needed to do some editing, I found that I was unable to edit / create any images using the GIMP toolbox.
I have reset all settings / reinstalled the software to no avail. I also found an article describing how to ‘Unstick’ any drawing functionality - all measures have failed to resolve the issue.
Furthermore, I do see, when I’ve selected a tool, e.g. ‘Brush’, that when I move the brush over the selected layer / image that there is a dotted half-circle - presumably the tool active area - but this only appears at the edge of the delineated drawing board and does *not * follow the cross-hair cursor over the image / layer.
I am quite confused and unable to make any headway! Does anyone have any helpful suggestions?
