Help! Can't see brushes when working on image
When I use a brush (like the airbrush, the clone, the eraser) I cant see the brush when I go to use it on the image (the edges of what will be be painted, cloned, etc), so im having to do blind guess-work---basically i just click and then I can see how big the brush was. In prior versions of GIMP there was a semi-transparent line indicating the brush shape and size. Thoughts?

RE: Help! Can't see brushes when working on image
The above answer maybe the best one you will have with the limited details you've given us.

But I did see that you are using 2.8.4 on Mac. Can you upgrade to 2.8.6? Does the issue remain on that?

Someone has submitted a ticket on macports with you version of gimp with the exact same bug.

But the problem seems forgotten :\

(From my experience)
Sometimes when I had XP the cursor glitched moving around if its a large file or some filter. When I minimize & maximise BAM, the cursor is back to normal/visible again, you could try that.

...I dug a little deeper into the issue and found a thread that complements Ofnut's advice Smile
with suggestions to try in Gimp's mouse properties

Let me know if any of the above works, if not, then a little more research will need to be done(but only a little at least from me , I've looked at 3 pages already XD)

EDIT: hmm lol, I had one more tab open (Lucky for you!) And it brings another question to the table:

*Are you using a tablet or mouse & keyboard, this user mentioned it didn't show on their tablet, drawing tablet?; not sure.
