Hey. I've looked around on this forum and other places to see if I can get a fix for this. But not found a fix that works.

On P'shop cc 2018, I have Photoshop App on my iMac screen with a file (A) open, with another Photoshop file (B) on the other screen. When I select and copy text from file B, it sometimes just crashes Photoshop.

It doesn't say that it has crashed in finder, and doesn't show the 'Application Not Responding' notice in the dock icon. I can still play with the type, but clicking the commit (tick) or cancel buttons doesn't work. It also won't let me save any of the files with the only thing left for me to do is force quit the app - losing any changes I've made to the file.

Has anyone else come across this bug/issue?

Hi peters93494632,

Sorry to hear that Photoshop is freezing(sounds like) while pasting text from one Photoshop tab to another.

Are you using the latest CC 19.1.2 version of Photoshop? You could post the Photoshop Help>>System info report here and we'll get to know about the installed app components.

Thanks,

Akash

I am having the same problem with the very latest Photoshop 24.4.2 release. I copy from a mail or forum some text and when I paste it to the PSD file - Photoshop just crashes. I have sent several reports to Adobe. It is still doing this despite restarting the computer twice. HELP
