i'm having several strange problems, is it me or the program?
i just recently started using gimp but it seemed pretty self explanatory to me, but then i started getting a bunch of weird problems. first you should probably know i'm using a pen and tablet as well as a mouse. the first problem I noticed is that if i select one tool with the mouse it doesn't always use the same tool for the tablet, sometimes it will change to the new one and sometimes it'll still be on the last one. the next problem is that sometimes i click a button and nothing happens. the button is kind of highlighted with the dotted line to show that i clicked it but nothing happens. once when this happened i tried to click it with my mouse instead because sometimes that works, but my mouse cursor couldn't move at all.
the last thing is i was adjusting the settings for one tool and the tool options box came undocked and turned into a floating window. i tried putting it back through several methods and even when i went to the windows button on the top and tried to dock it it didn't dock a black outline just flashed around the tools options block. i'm trying to draw and all of this is really stressing me out!
