My tools (adjustment brush etc) have suddenly lost the ability to have their size controlled by the mouse scroll wheel/trackpad. Instead, it changes the size of the viewed image. I have reset preferences and looked everywhere for a setting that would make the size via mouse/trackpad. When I try to change the size, it first hesitates, then changes the center to the magnifying glass, and then changes the viewed size. Looking for some way to fix this as it will really slow me down.

That's really odd. I can't think of anything that would cause that behaviour.

If you move the wheel forward and backward, does the image shrink and grow?

Does the mouse wheel behave itself in other applications?

You say "mouse scroll wheel/trackpad" Which is it? Or is it either?

If you haven't already, try rebooting your Mac.

Thanks for the replies. It turned out it was a hardware problem. I found another trackpad and it worked correctly. Not sure why it was an issue just in LR but it's fine now.
