Drag and drop of layers between files is not working.

I'm dragging a layer from an RGB file to a CMYK one and it's not working.

It used to be in past versions.

I'm on the latest version:

Adobe Photoshop Version: 21.2.1 20200716.r.265

Mac OS Catalina latest version: 10.15.6

 

Anyone knows how to fix?

To update Photoshop to 21.2.2, click "Update" in the Creative Cloud desktop app next to Photoshop. See: More detailed instructions for updating

Same issue, can't drag a layer to another window after the new update. It only works if the window is not consolidated to a tab

Hi all,

 

We're sorry for the dragging layer issue on another document. We're are aware of this issue and our engineering team working is on the fix. In the meanwhile, you can try one of the following workarounds:

 

  • You can right-click on the layer > Select Duplicate and choose the destination.
  • Arrange the image windows side-by-side, then dragging will work. Window > Arrange > 2 Up Vertical.
  • Using the Move tool, drag the layer from the Canvas.
  • Dragging from Layers panel to the image tab using both mouse buttons

 

Hope it helps.

 

Thanks,

Mohit

Next month I will pay the subscription with pottery, then you can try  to change it for cash at the bank. Just as a workaround.

Meanwhile I will donwload a "no so latest" version of Photoshop

Hello

As soon as I turned the computer on, it told me that the Adobe Creative Cloud had been updated.

Version I'm on: Adobe Photoshop Version: 21.2.1 20200716.r.265 2020/07/16: 2b9692040b x64

 

Probably it was an Hotfix, but you can see it in the image attached.

 

Cheers

This only affects files in tabs. If you turn off tabs, it doesn't happen. Tested on both Mac and Windows.
