in the previous version when you was making a selection using the polygon lasso select tool you was able to zoom using the strg+space / strg+alt+space key and the position where you klick / dragged was kept more or less in the center of the viewport. now when you try to change the zoom, the viewport jumps to some kind of random position and you have to drag and find the position you where selecting. this is an annoying bug. please fix it
What is "strg+" ? I use windows and with PS 21.1.0 when I use the polygon lasso tool I have no problem Zooming the image with Ctrl++ and Ctrl+- However, the Image Window does not resize even when I have the Photoshop Preference Zoom resize window checked. I can Also zoom with the mouse wheel and I can use the space bar to switch temporarily to the hand tool and pan the image in the imaged window.
There has been a issue raised that the Shortcuts Ctrl+Alt++ and Ctrl+Alt+- no loger zoom the image window in 21.10 the image does zoom in the window.
when using the lasso tool you can zoom by pressing strg+space+left mouse click to zoom in, and strg+alt+space and left mouse click to zoom out. as i have my one hand hovering over those keys all the time this was a very convenient way of zooming into details... this now is completely broken, as it jumps to some kind of random position in the image. so they 100% changed something that affected this behaviour, as it was working in the previous version.
I see strg+ is Ctrl+ on my keyboard. Yes it look like the Zoom work bot Image and window Zoom but the Image position now changes. Its position changes relative to the polygons lasso cursor where in the previously versions the lasso cursor position stay put on the image. The Space Bar audition zoom the window as well as the image. Adobe also broke the Ctrl+Alt++ and Ctrl+Alt+- Shortcuts in the 21.10 update the Alt+ in the shortcuts would Zoom the window as well as the image the image windows does not soom in 21.1.0. This has been reported. Please report the Lasso shortcut issue to Adobe on their feedback site. Adobe Feedback
I'm also having issues with the polygonal lasso tool. I use my iPad pro as a drawing tablet with extended monitoring to the iPad so I can have a full featured photoshop. The polygonal lasso tool completely doesn't work with the apple pencil. It's been working perfectly fine for the last 2 years I've had this setup. With the new update, it hasn't worked. If I fire up PS CC 2019, it works perfectly fine... which is what I'll have to use until they come up with a fix.
Yes 21.1.0 has many issues. Many of us have reinstall 21.0.3. Adobe needs to fix the serious bugs in 21.1.0 if has to many bugs It not worth using.
Yes, I am a career graphic designer and I am sad about Adobe's unwillingness to fix this issue. The random zooming when I am trying to select objects costs me time and forces me to start over on selections.
