    1. Hi Christa,
      Sorry for the delay in responding, the comment section of the site had an issue.

      I’m not sure what you mean about the tool not being black.
      Do you mean that the cursor/s are odd?

      Maybe something changed with your system settings?

        1. Christa,

          Sorry for the delay, life happens, and then I just forgot about this, sorry.

          Did you solve it?

          My 1st thought was that you might have a bad font.
          Also, check your Image>Mode that you are in say, RGB color, 8 bit, which we know will work for sure.

  1. do i have to download the ‘3d repousse plugin’ from somewhere ?
    I can see it linked in the 3D menu but I can’t use it? why is that?
