Hello,

Updated to 19.0, I am no longer able to drag a marquee (without selection) using the rectangular marquee tool. All other marquee tools work.

When I draw a selection with this tool, rather than getting a small white arrow and square drawn with a dotted line (which allows me to drag the marquee), I get instead a vertical and horizontal cross hair (the marquee tool before you draw with it) and a little 'x' - meaning if I click I just get rid of the marquee.

If I change to another marquee tool, I can then drag the square/rectangle marquee but not without this workaround step.

I have tried resetting the tools

I have tried starting Photoshop holding down the buttons to rest preferences

Neither worked.

OS Sierra 10.12.6

iMAc Reina 5k / 4Ghz Intel Core i7

Any ideas? Thanks

I had the same problem.  I did change the options.  The marquee did add new but when I went to move the new section the entire  subject moved behind.  So new to all this.
