1. I just got that odd bug where a selection area can't be moved with the lasso tool, which is now "stuck" in Deselect mode. Normally click & drag the selection (with lasso) will move the selection area (no modifier keys needed). Restart did not resolve. I had similar issues in another studio, and the Chrome browser turned out to be the cause of many "bug" issues. I now have Chrome on my Mac, but it's not runnng currently. Just asking if others have simiar issues. I know the standard fix for this is PS Prefs Reset, which brings me to Question #2...
2. I know too well that the typical "fix" for bug related issues is PS Prefs reset. The important question is this: Is there still so "soft" reset for PS Prefs? There are so many random settings that get lost after Prefs reset, it is an annoying procedure that is called for too often. Is there not an option to reset PS Prefs without losing so many custom settings? I.E.: Disabling "Delete Cropped Pixels" for Crop Tool is an EXTREMELY important function that reverts to default with Prefs Reset. That & so many more tiny details have to be manually restored after prefs reset, it is an extremely inefficient procedure.
If Prefs have become "corrupted", is it not possible to preserve existing custom settings like "Cropped Pixels? mentioned above?
