Anyone else run into frustrating menu issues with Photoshop 2021 (v22) that makes it unusable?
On my Windows 10 machine with all video drivers up to take, I can't properly select options in menus. When I click a menu item (say, Filter) and attempt to click an option under that menu, Photoshop instead jumps to a menu list to the left. It's impossible to select anything under the Help menu, for instance.
I've recorded a video of this behavior.
A few more notes:
This is specific to Photoshop 22. This behavior reminds of sketchy beta software -- not software that has presumably been through a thorough beta process. 😡
Hi instead of update install full version of 2021 using setup then try it....regards
I uninstall 2021 and reinstalled the full version. The problem still remains.
However, I've noticed that if I run Photoshop on it's own, the menu system works. When I open an image through Lightroom's Edit In Photoshop function, the menu system is broken again.
Hey, I'm experiencing the same problems. Also, there's a lag between mousing over a menu item and it responding. It makes the whole thing unusably frustrating.
I've done a full uninstall a couple of times. All drivers are up to date. I've disabled, the re-enabled the Video Card option in Prferences.
I've purged my Settings files.
I'm about to uninstall, yet again, and go back to the previous version of PS. This is ridiculous. And the fact that Adobe does not offer any real support for their products drives me nuts.
I'm running a very fast, very new Windows machine with everything up to date. This should not be happening.
It's good to know that I'm not the only one running into these issues.
I guess it's time to be the squeaky wheel. I thought Adobe staff monitored these forums and would jump in.
I guess the issue now is trying to figure out where to be squeaky!
I have the same issue!
ANYONE FROM ADOBE HERE?
Hi i think this is some bug wait for some stable update....regards rollback to 2020 version
Waiting without an acknowledgement of the problem by Adobe seems pointless. I'd rather know that the issue has been confirmed and will be addressed.
This is a user forum, answered by volunteer users not Adobe staff. The feedback forum you mentioned above is monitored by Adobe developers.
If developers are to do anything though they will need to replicate it (I can't replicate the issue here) so you will need to give full system details. The best way to do that is Help > System Info and then click copy. Paste the detail into your feedback forum post
Hopefully it gets resolved soon. Until then, Photoshop 2021 is unusable for me.
Same. Close/re-open, reboot, uninstall/re-install. Still does this. Everything up to date. Both trackpad and mouse.
More info: my menu moves up to 7 places to the left. It happens as soon as I move the cursor after clicking the menu. I don't have to click sub menu or anything. I don't even get an opportunity to get to one of those. I can arrow key through the menus just fine.
Hey Adobe this is an issue with Windows Display settings. The number of spaces that one's mouse will be off on the menu will be determined by their Win10 Operating system display settings - "Scale and layout" (size of text, apps and other items) setting. If I set this setting to 100%, the menu bar operates properly. As I increase the percentage to 125%, 150% +++ the number of spaces that my mouse is "off" grows with each incremental increase. I have a high resolution monitor and 100% is a ridiculous setting for all of my other apps (just to get photoshop to work) This is indeed a bug. Please fix this quickly
How is it that a user has to troubleshoot something like this after three months of Adobe evidently not lifting a finger to investigate the problem?
And here we are in August 2021 and Adobe still hasn't fixed this.
Based on the information at https://feedback.photoshop.com/conversations/photoshop/community-consolidation-announcement/611d82e2... "All the engineers, product managers, and champions from the feedback site will migrate to the community to help address feature requests and bug reports") will this bug finally be addressed???
Reading this thread and the feedback thread, the issue so far is that Adobe could not reproduce your issue. I cannot reproduce it here either on three separate systems. Adobe developers cannot fix what they cannot reproduce.
Did you take the advice of Jeffrey Tranberry and contact support directly so that they can look at your individual system?
Here is fine for working on this issue. We've never been able to reproduce the problem which leads me to believe it's a system specific issue (some setting or conflict on systems where customers are seeing this).
One of customers on the thread says that running in safe mode fixed it for them. This bypasses non-default system extensions and drivers. So that's a good clue.
I already spent a lot time on this over the last few months. All the information is here for someone at Adobe to investigate and fix the problem.
As you can clearly see, I'm not the only one having the issue.
Saying "we can't fix this because we can't reproduce it" is a cop out. It shouldn't be up to customers to have to keep poking a software vendor to fix an ongoing problem.
I don't make my living doing a dance to try to troubleshot issues with Adobe software, so yeah, I'm annoyed at this and the fact that no one at Adobe has reached out to solve this. I've posted the issue, I've recorded video, I've tried all the trouble shooting steps that have been recommended and the issue still persists.
