Hi.

 

Does anyone know how to fix this error? I can't pick colors from with the eye dropper. I have the most recent versión of Photoshop Beta: 25.4.0

 

I tried reseting preferences, erase them, hidding layers, etc.

 

Here is a capture of the problem:

Just adding my voice to this. I finally gave in to subscription and upgraded from CS6 and there's issues with such a common tool?!

This problem is fixed on version 25.5, but now the slow cursor problem is back in the Liquify tool.  I'll go look for that thread.

25.5 didn't seem to do the trick for me. It's still doing the same issue.

I select a color for the Stroke effect with the eyedropper tool. The program does select the color, but still complains about a program error.

Segue o erro que identifiquei com a ferramenta conta-gotas, mas que pode estar atrelado a outras ferramentas. Photoshop atualizado e não sei o porque aparece essa mensagem constantemente.
