Every time I use the pen tool to make a path in the most recent Phhotoshop, the tool becomes unresponsive and I have to save the document and reopen. It is costing me large amounts of time. Does anyonee know how I can deactivate this version and reactivate an older version?

Thank you.

Hi there,

 

Sorry that the Pen tool in Photoshop 22.3 is freezing continuously.

 

This has been acknowledged as a known issues in the latest Photoshop build and our engineering team is working towards a fix. 

 

For details, see: https://feedback.photoshop.com/conversations/photoshop/photoshop-2230-pen-tool-not-working-as-it-sho...

 

There are a few workarounds shared by other users:

 

  1. Press CTRL/ CMD + H
  2. Maintain a Work Path, then working on named Paths should work as expected. 
  3. Roll back to previous version of Photoshop. See: https://helpx.adobe.com/download-install/using/install-previous-version.html 

 

Thanks,

Akash
