Since yesterday's upgrade the Notes tool in Photoshop doesn't seem to be working as before. The N shortcut doesn't create a new noe, I can't drag existing notes to new positions, I have to select the notes tool icon to then right click and open a note rather than just double clicking it. Is this a bug or am I missing something?

It's working here on PS21.2 and Windows 10 1909.

 

Shortcut is I (as it was in the last version). No issues dragging notes around or clicking to open.

It is working here on mac Catalina 10.15.3 , Photoshop 2020 ( 21.2.0)

 

Did you customized the shortcut for the note tool in the previous version ( from I to N ) ?

Hi

I'm on Catalina 10.15.5 I didn't customize any shortcut but I can see now that I shortcut creates  a note. However I still cant move any notes around using the mouse or move tool.

I found this thread when looking for a solution for this same problem then finally realized with more experimenting, I could in fact move the Notes. Not sure if this changed in a recent version but it seems different. Maybe this will help;
With the Notes tool selected, hover over the Note you wish to move and the cursor is the Note icon UNTIL I hover over the upper left corner. The cursor changes to an arrow and I am then able to click and drag the note.

Hi Matt

thanks for your reply. I too have been experimenting and found how to open and move notes. It seems to be quite different from my previous version of Photoshop where the default short cut was N and you could move a note by clikcing anywhere on.

thanks again

I have had same issues.  I definitely prefer the way notes were managed before.  I can add, move and edit notes, but I often end up creating a new note in the process.  Plus an empty note often stays open when I close a project.
