    [Fixed] Marquee Tool wont let me select area

    I got an image of icons that i want to copy specific ones and make into their own files to insert into another file. The problem is, when i select the Marquee tool and click drag the area i want to copy, it doesnt do anything. No dotted lines appear, and no area is selected.

    This is one of the simplest tasks in editing pictures and yet Photoshop seems to want to complicate the hell out of it. Does anyone have any idea how to get this simple tool to work as it should again?

    I have 6.5



    I discovered the problem. Apparently Synergy was interfering with it somehow, causing any tool in PS to now allow click+ dragging functionality. Closing the Synergy resolved it.
