BETA: Select and Mask Polygon Lasso Tool Alt mode broken

Issue: When holding ALT and clicking around with the Polygon Lasso Tool (In Select and Mask), it will palce nodes but will not respond to any other keys and can not be canceled out with ESC. 

Photoshop BETA Version: Version: 25.7.0 20240415.r.504 130b225 x64

OS: Windows 10 Pro N 22H2 

 

Steps to reproduce:

1. Open a layer in Select and Mask

2. Select the Polygon Lasso Tool

3. Hold Alt so the icon has the - icon 

4. Click various places 

 

The control gets locked up somehow and refuses to acknowledge any other commands other than holding control and clicking to close the loop. 

 

The ALT key also doesn't do anything when already clicking nodes. I would expect it to remove the last node placed or whichever one I select but it just places another node, regardless of whether or not ALT is held down. I would expect Right Clicking to do the same but it just places more nodes. 

 

It's not immediately intuitive that you can press DELETE to delete the most recent node. It would be nice if holding ALT also did this or Right Click.

Hey, @calebm83272106. Welcome to the Photoshop Community. I'll help you figure this out. 

 

Before troubleshooting, update Photoshop & Photoshop (beta) via the Creative Cloud desktop app & check if that helps. 

 

Go to the location of the preference folder below and rename it to backup.

  • Windows 10/11: Users/[user name]/AppData/Roaming/Adobe/Adobe Photoshop [version]/Adobe Photoshop [version] Settings
  • You can press Press the Windows key > Enter 'Run' > Enter %APPDATA%\Adobe
  • Rename the Adobe Photoshop folder by adding a .old at the end. (Adobe Photoshop 2024, or beta > Rename > Adobe Photoshop 2024. old), You can restore these preferences later if needed.(https://adobe.ly/4860qM9)
  • Restart the computer.

These changes will give a fresh start to Photoshop as a fresh install. Let me know how it goes.

Thanks!

Sameer K
