    Speed Edits require long press (press-n-hold) vs Q key for switching to heal tool. Are you using the default keyboard map or a custom keyboard map?

    Try switching to the default keyboard map and see if keys work as expected. If so, perhaps the custom keyboard map is corrupt.

    Ooh, good shout on the defaults, I tried remapping but didn't think to switch back to the default keyset to check!
    The default set works fine, so now the question is - how did my custom set become "Corrupt" and how to I remedy it - I'm really not endeared to the suggestion that I go through the summary printout line by line recreating my keybinds...?

    According to the UI there are no other keys bound to Q, but obviously *something* is tripping it over.

    I picked through the keylist printout, and I have a bind no longer shown by the keybind UI for "Corresponding Points" lurking in there, perhaps a legacy echo from C1 v7/8 - I suspect that's the culprit!

    Thanks for the reminder to check the defaults, I guess I'll have to work through the printout and rebind a new set in the morning.

    You could go to Edit Keyboard shortcuts in the Edit menu and check whether Q is set to do that. If it isn't, you can set it.

    Yes I checked there, I also rebound it to another key (N) which works fine, however when the key is rebound to Q (and I checked for conflicts, too) it does not work.

    I suspect Q is conflicting perhaps with the SpeedEdit keys, however the logs don't throw up anything revealing. Does Q for healing brush work on your system?

    Look for your custom key map in the app prefs folder. If it's a text file you might be able to remedy this by editing the text file vs rebuilding a custom map. Make a backup copy!
