22.4.2 Mac Big Sur 11.5.2

After selecting with the quick selection tool, I click the "select and mask..." button but the workspace flashes on screen then dissappears. The add button is selected. This also happens with the lasso tool. Any suggestions?

Could you please post a screen shot. That could help a lot. You could try resetting the Photoshop Preferences. This is a great general purpose fix for many issues. They can be found in the Photoshop menu on a Mac and the Edit menu on Windows. Within the General tab is the button Reset Preferences On Quit.

Thank you Michael! That did it. A bit of a hassle, but I'll take it.

Great to hear and thank you. The next time Photoshop starts acting "weird" be sure to try resetting those preferences.
