I always have my layers palette visible. Since updating to the current version of PS, every time I close the program and reopen it, the layers palette is gone. I have to click F7 or go to Window and select layers for it to be visible.  is this a bug or is there a way to have the layers palette visible by default like it used to be?

thanks!

Hi there, 

 

Sorry that the Layers panel is hiding from its usual place in Photoshop 2020 v21.3. 

 

Does the problem occurs while working on a specific document? Have you tried using a different workspace in Photoshop?

 

Would you mind restoring the preferences for Photoshop & see if it helps? See this article for reference: https://t.co/ulJI7cGn1G You may want to backup your settings beforehand: https://t.co/4dX7gkr36D 

 

Thanks,

Akashh

I'm having the same problem across many different image files. Very frustrating. I've tried a whole lot of different workspaces with no joy. Now my familiar workspace is gone and even if I set it up again, I'm sure Photoshop will just bin it for me again. We all need to use the Adobe suite to produce work. I do get quite tired of having to fiddle with software which was working in a familiar, predictable way the day before. It's becoming an unpredictable suite, which is worrying. Just discovered that the free 2019 Acrobat Reader was displaying gremlins with any effects (glows and drop shadows) which had been applied. Clients were seeing random splotches of contrasting colour in areas of subtle shading.
