I don't know what i did, but there is no information about the tool i am using now. The image is the device status, below the tool box. I am on the warp tool. It only says core pointer.

    Do you use any special input devices? Tablet styluses will appear there, for example. Mar 8 '20 at 4:02
  • There's nothing wrong here. "Core Pointer" is what the Device Status will show if you are using a mouse. Select the Tool Options tab instead if you want to see the tool options.

As per Billy Kerr's comment, "Core Pointer" is the basic mouse cursor in Device Status. You will see other input devices if you have something like a tablet and stylus.

This window gathers together the current options of Toolbox, for each of your input devices: the mouse (named “Core pointer”) or either the tablet, if you have one. These options are represented by icons: foreground and background colors, brush, pattern and gradient. Excepted for colors, clicking on an icon opens the window which lets you select another option; the tool-box will be updated when changing. You can drag and drop items to this dialog.
