Elements 18 (2020) starts to open but doesn't complete the opening. Using iMac Catalina 10.15.7. Had a a similar issue with Mac OS and new M1 chip but that was corrected by changing the sniffer file. Tried that withthe Catalina OS but it didn't work. Any ideas on how to fix this issue? Thank you.

What version of photoshop elements are you running on the M1 Mac?
I am running Elements 2022 on the M1 Mac. Any help with the problem I am having with Elements 2020 with the Catalina OS is deeply appreciated.
Since you already have a license to pse 2022 i would suggest removing pse 2020 from Catalina and installing pse 2022, which is more compatible with macOS Catalina. Your allowed two installs of photoshop elements 2022 as per the EULA.
Thanks, Jeff I'll give it a try.
