I am using Photoshop Elements 2019 on a Mac running Catalina. I know there are issues with this version of PSE running Catalina, but up until this week, I have not had any problems when working in the Editor. I am in the Expert version and trying to drag a layer from one creation to a new one, both are the same size, and it will not drop into the new layer. It won't even let me copy or cut that layer to be able to paste into the new document. I do this all the time and it was working perfectly until now. I also noticed that I cannot update PSE 2019. I'm not particulary interested in updating to PSE 2020 at this stage, as it is likely that another new version is soon to be released. Can anyone offer any tips to get this to work?

Nobody knows for sure if and when a new version will be available (except those who are not allowed to say - under NDA), nobody also kn...

Nobody knows for sure if and when a new version will be available (except those who are not allowed to say - under NDA), nobody also knows if Adobe will offer free updates to the new version for those who bought the former version within 30 days of the availability of the new version...

Didn't think of that! I'm likely going to upgrade to the latest version which is typically released sometime in the fall, but I'll try the free 2020 version for now.
