This happens all the time and it's driving me crazy... I press Z to switch to the Zoom Tool. Then I click-drag somewhere to zoom in, but instead Ps has switched back to the Grab Tool, so I end up dragging some piece of artwork out of place instead of zooming as intended.
Sometimes even after pressing Z an extra time it still happens. I've gotten into the habit of hitting the key three times before zooming, just to let Photoshop know that, yes, I am serious about wanting to zoom. That is actually what I want to do. Not Grab. Not any other operation. Zoom. Z key...
Is anyone else experiencing this? Is there a way to solve it?
