The paste epecial (paste in place - paste into) stopped working. Does anyone knows how to fix it? Using the last version of Photoshop - V22.1.0

 

I saw one fix, but Adobe removed the path: EDIT>PREFERENCES>PERFORMANCE>LEGACY COMPOSTING.

 

Best regards

I'm not able to replicate this issue in Photoshop 22.1.0. You could try resetting preferences. https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/preferences.html

  1. Do share the screenshot for better understanding. Other advice for you could be there possible your PS software would have been crashed I guess it's better to reinstall it and try though it's a long process still better than nothing.

This is what happens: I'm not able to use the function. I've already coppied an overlay file (sky, for example) and made a selection, but i'm not able to use the PASTE INTO or PASTE IN PLACE (obs: the menu is in portuguese). The program is from Creative Cloud.

I think you can not use Paste either, it is greyed out. Something is preventing you from using clipboard, I think if you are sure that you have copied content.
