I use PS with Enhanced Content-Aware Fill.

My PC reloaded suddenly and now content-aware fill doesn't work properly.

All the buttons disappeared just scale slider left

I'm trying to reinstall the photoshop

If you get a problem like this , try resetting preferences. The preference files contain a lot more than just the user set preferences and are saved each time Photoshop closes. If they are corrupted, then strange behaviour can follow.

I reinstall the PS without saving old configurations and it helped.

Could you please explain how to "reset" your preferences file in PS? And if you do reset, how does that affect all your preference settings you created as well as plug-ins like Nik and Skylum?

Hi

See here:

It is always worth saving presets, actions etc before a reset.
