Hi, since the last update 4 days ago. When clicking Photoshop->Setting the menu is blank.

I need to change my settings. Anyone else have the same problem?

I have done all the usual rebooting, checking for updates ect.

MacOS, MacBook Pro, 16GB memory ect...

 

Many thanks in advance.

V24.0.1 Bug on MAC M1 Pro

CMD K loads the preferences dialogue box, BUT the menu item is empty in the main tool bar. See the attached image.

I have reset the preferences by deleting them but the bug is persistent 😞

 

Any help please?

VERY odd; there is no such menu option on my (latest) version of PS, running on Mac. And there shouldn't be. 

Command K opens the actual preferences.

Try uninstalling then reinstalling Photoshop using Adobe Creative Cloud and when asked, do not keep preferences. Better?

Hi @thedigitaldog 

 

I uninstalled and reinstalled and it's still the same, no matter what I do.

I wonder if something has changed in OS 13.1 beta 3 that is causing this issue?

OS 13.1 beta 3? Well, that's no good! NO beta OSs are supported. I'm on 13.0.1; no issue as shown.

Either roll back to an existing supported OS or live with a bug between a nonsupported OS.

Try resetting your preferences:

Hold Shift+Ctrl+Cmd+Opt when launching PS (hold before launching and until the pop up asking to reset appears)

Hi @darreng30895212, as @thedigitaldog sharred in the link above, it might be that you are using Mac OS beta and not a release version?  Please confirm what OS version you see this issue.

 

It may help if we could see your Photoshop System Info. Launch Photoshop, and select Help >System Info...and copy/paste the text in a reply.  

 

Thank you,

Cory
