Hi, Is there anyone that can tell me why all of a sudden i cannot create a solid color layer. It was working fine a couple of days ago. I can add all other layers such a Brightness/contrast layer, a gradient layer and all other layers seem to work except solid color. I seem to have nothing but trouble with this latest version of Photoshop 2021.

I am having the same issue.  It only just started and all other adjustment layers seem to be working fine.
