Hello!

In Photoshop CS6, I seem to be unable to create layers, effects, delete layers, etc. Just about everything on the bottom right corner bar. I am also unable to click below 3 layers, everything below is deactivated. Nothing is greyed out, it is all white. The buttons just wont press.

Anyone able to help? Thanks

In your Image Mode Settings you likely have 'Multichannel' or 'Indexed Colour' selected?

Haha, we all experience things in PS that we have no idea how that happened. It's like it likes to test you once in awhile to see if you are paying attention.

Glad you are back up and creating again! Good luck.

I'm experiencing similar issue, I have RGB Color and 8 bit selected, and I still can't create any adjustment layers from that bottom toolbar.  Other ideas?

Scratch that, it appears photoshop simply took a very long time to recognize that it should not be disabled.  I was able to perform other operations while it was disabled, so I'm not so sure it would be memory related.
