I can get it to crash by just adding a curves adjustment and clicking on any of the interactive tools (black/white/grey point eyedropper, or the 'click and drag' icon). PS crashes out. 

 

If it doe snot crash with the 'click and drag' to set curves vaues, it won't release the control once the mouse button is released. 

 

I'm using a Mac running Catalina.

Does turning off »Use Graphics Processor« in the Performance Preferences (Photoshop > Preferences > Performance > Graphic Processor Settings) and restarting Photoshop have any bearing on the issue? 

 

What have you done for all-purpose trouble-shooting so far?
Restoring Preferences after making sure all customized presets like Actions, Patterns, Brushes etc. have been saved might be a good starting point:

Thanks for your quick and helpful reply - I turned off Use graphics Processor, and also reset all preferences to default values, restarted Photoshop and tried using a Curves adjustment. It has not crashed, but picking the icon of the hand with the arrows above and below is laggy, and also once the mouse button is released, the tool remains selected.

 

It did not do this last release. 

 

I have to choose another tool eg press 'v' to get the icon to switch to something else.

Photoshop 22.3.0 seems to have some issues – if they prove too annoying to you you may want to roll back the Photoshop version. 

But make sure to back-up your presets first.

Thanks for the heads up - Bridge 2021 is not playing nice either. On startup it would repeatedly crsash too. I'll go back to the last version.

Good advise. I have multiple machines and I aways keep a mchine with a older version of PS just in case of issues with newer versions. Just a fact that bugs happen in new releases.

Good idea!! CC makes it dead easy to roll back too. I;m using 22.2 and seems to be fine so far....
