I think the reason you are directed to this forum is you would no longer get one-on-one phone support with CS6, which is several years old now.  It might sound harsh, but with nine million creative cloud subscribers, _plus_ all the millions who have older versions, it would be unrealistic to expect life time support for old products.  But fear not.  The regular posters to this forum a real experts who actually use the product.

OK, do you have the Extended version of CS6?  It might be that Design Standard only comes with the full Extended version.

What operating system are you using?

What are your system specs, and specifically your GPU?  Is this a desktop system with a video card, or a laptop/notebook that uses onboard graphics?  An easy way to get to the bottom of that would be for you to open Photoshop, and go Help > System Info > Copy and paste to this thread.

Answer those questions and we'll take it from there.

Your system is definitely up to spec, so we need to know if you have the Extended version of Photoshop?

Do you have the Analysys fly-out under the Image menu?  I think that is only there with the Extended version.

This link tells you the other differences.

What’s the Difference: Photoshop CS6 vs. Photoshop CS6 Extended? | ProDesignTools

The bottom line is if you only have the standard version, you don't have the 3D features.

Hi Trevor

Thanks for the help.

Yes, under image menu has the Analysis but only ruler tool is on the rest

is greyed out.

I still confuse about standerd version with and without Extended version.

I do not know how to compare the differences and how to check whether my

cs6 version is the extended version?

Can I call up Creative Cloud for enquire?

Regards

Debbie
