With Blender 2.79 I'm trying to use the Smooth brush on the monkey head, nothing happens. Yet when I use the SculpDraw brush with Strength at 0 and use the Autosmooth it works as a smooth brush for now.

I'm wondering is there a setting I disabled by accident? I already have Strength for the Smooth Brush at 1 and it does nothing. I know that in the past the brush disappeared and I had to make a new Smooth brush with Brush>Sculpt Tool>Smooth it worked once, now it doesn't do anything.

How can I get the brush to work reliably again?

  • $\begingroup$ @LukeD This problem is a problem with Blender not any blender file, if fact any Blender file will have the same problem. The monkey head was just an example. $\endgroup$ Sep 19, 2017 at 19:54

    $\begingroup$ Well... It could be problem with brush settings and these are saved inside a file. It's your choice. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ LukeD Just from what you stated I decided to check something, and yes older files from a year ago everything works perfectly. So I hit the factory reset... I think I just sledge hammered a mosquito. Luckily I still have another Blender open where I can copy all its settings. $\endgroup$ Sep 20, 2017 at 11:51

I opened 2 instances of Blender, in one of them I hit in the

File>Load Factory Settings

I used the other opened Blender to copy settings and layouts and all the user preferences.

I was hoping for something less drastic but it doesn't seem to be another solution.
