Description tomtomtomreportingin 2021-02-20 03:20:37 UTC
While moving the dividers of horizontal/vertical mirror tools, certain inputs will visually lock the cursor icon to a hand icon, until Krita is restarted. Certain inputs include right-clicking, other mouse/pen buttons, and shift+s (by default brings up the snap menu). 

Interestingly, the user can move the dividers using mouse/pen buttons besides left-click input, and if a user for example holds the dividers by holding right-click, the same behavior will occur by left-clicking.

1. Select the horizontal mirror tool.
2. Click and hold the divider.
3. While holding the divider, right-click.

The cursor icon stays as a hand icon until Krita is restarted. There doesn't seem to be another way to revert this.

Multiple combined mouse/pen inputs (along with shift+s and perhaps other inputs) shouldn't lock the cursor icon to the hand icon while moving symmetry tool dividers.

I can replicate this bug.

I'm using krita 4.4.2 on windows 10. Icon gets locked up every time, and I have to restart the software.

(Using windows 10) Was using version 4.4.1 and had this issue. Just upgraded to 4.4.3 and STILL having issues with the hand icon replacing my drawing curser. Also triggers for me when selecting the multibrush tool to mirror. SUPER ANNOYING.
