I am using Photoshop CC (v 20).  As of the new update, when I attempt to duplicate a single layer or group of multiple selected layers, the duplicated layer(s) are re-positioned outside of the canvas.  I must drag them back to the correct location on the canvas.

If I attempt to duplicate multiple selected layers at once in my layers panel, Photoshop will place them at the top of the layers panel and outside of the artboard the original layers are located in.

To add to this, there is another odd behavior in the layers panel.  If I attempt to drag the duplicated layers back into the artboard where I would've expected them to be, I must do it one layer at a time.  Otherwise, Photoshop will not move the layers when I try dropping them in the correct order.

When duplicating a group (Cmd + J), the duplicate group is not in place, but rather placed randomly. This problem does not occur when duplicating a single layer.

'Acknowledged' status would be more appropriate untill they work on, so now surely 'In Progress'.

So that was bug reported 3 weeks ago again, but occured 3 years ago originally.
I mean that wasn't side effect of CC 2019 release, but something from the past?

Well, I'm not sure why this issue was merged with a 3 year old thread. You are correct, the 3 year old issue was a separate bug, not at all related to the issue that occurred recently in 20.0. In any case, the bug should be fixed in 20.0.1.

So whatever is difference between that and this bug, that from 3 years wasn't fixed at same time?

I have no idea why, but since I updated, Photoshop CC is behaving strangely... Today I had major issues with the Move Tool, for instance, I drag a layer to the bottom of the layers palette to duplicate and all kinds of strange things happen... I suddenly have a duplicate of the layer AND a new blank layer, multiple layers are selected all at once... I thought it was the settings of my mouse but it is not that. I tried resetting all tools and it seems to be okay so far... However I am also still having issues with dragging a vertical layer straight from the vertical ruler. I just cannot drag it... but I have no problem dragging a guide from the horizontal layer... I cannot figure out why that is!
