Stupid PS question

When reducing reds via hue/saturation (as per the Smug tutorial - you know, eyedropper +/-, then adjust until cyans only, then move hue slider until it looks good), I can no longer get the dialog to stay open while I"m using the eyedroppers :scratch. I use the minus/plus droppers, but it keeps closing itself and when I return it's gone back to the defaults.

Ideas? I've closed/reopened PS with no change.

ETA: Doing the same thing with curves - as soon as I use an eyedropper, the dialog box closes. :dunno

    Only idea I have is resetting PS's settings. I've never seen the dialog box disappear.

    Might be helpful to know what version of PS you are using too.

    My only comment is there six ways to do almost anything in PS. I don't guess variations would work?

    Delete the Preferences file and see if that helps.

    Yes, and instead of just deleting it, I always drag it out of its directory onto the desktop. Photoshop will create a new file there. If that doesn't solve the problem, you can always restore the file from the desktop and restore all your settings.
