I don't know where this option is, but the latest updates are terrible interuptions for my workflow. All of a sudden, a freehand selection made with the lasso tool is a rectangle!

Hi there,

 

Sorry that Photoshop is not working after the recent app update and the freehand selection made with Lasso tool turns out to be a Rectangle.

 

Which version of Photoshop are you using and what is your computer's OS? 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

 

To turn off Auto updates in the Creative Cloud app:

  • Open Creative Cloud application
  • Open preferences by clicking the gear icon on the top right of the window
  • Go into the Apps section of the window that opens, there you have the option to disable auto updates.

See the screenshot below for reference:

Thanks,
