Since the latest update (21.1) my paths are not behaving properly. No popup appears when right-clicking in the 'Paths' window (so I can't access 'make selection, 'fill path' etc.), and when moving a path within the window it creates visual ghosting overlay images of said paths, which stay visible even when navigating to other tabs with the menu.

I can’t reproduce the issue (21.1.0 on macOS 10.15.3). 

In any case one should also be able to trigger the operations from the pop-up-menu or with the buttons at the bottom of the Paths Panel.

Hi Christoph,

Thank you for your reaction. To specify: I'm on Windows 10 Pro (Build 18362).
I actually didn't think of using the buttons at the bottom. Great workaround! Thanks for that.

I am having this problem with both the Channels and Paths; PS 21.1 and Windows 10 Pro build 18362. Icon buttons and panel menus work fine, and Layers is same as normal.

I've also encountered this issue with both Paths and Channels.  I cannot even get the two-option Duplicate Channel/Delete Channel to pop up in Channels, and also experiencing the ghosting overlay of paths.

In Photoshop v21.1 right clicking a channel in the channels panel , or a path in the paths panel, no longer brings up a context menu to duplicate the channel, or similar to duplicate, stroke etc the path.

Workaround - the panel dropdown menu now needs to be used

Photoshop v21.1 Windows 10 Pro v1909
