Annoying Garry's Mod Problem

My problem is that I can only use tools if I use them in front of props!! So I can’t even use paint tool to ground only to ragdolls and etc. And lamps and balloons work only when i put them to stuff and ragdolls

You aren’t supposed to be able to paint the ground.

I didn’t mean the colour-tool… I meant the tool, what allows you to make blood splatters and etc.

this happened to me before!
i reckon its a file which we downloaded on gmod which may have stopped from using the paint tool on the ground/walls/sky etc.
the only cure i know (and its pretty lame) is to delete your gmod folder and start downloading things again… this has happened to me 3 times :frowning:
