Levels, not Curves in CS6

Mar 23, 2013 9:33 AM

Using CS6, try to open a curves adjustment layer...the way I have for years...levels opens. Will not correct. Have to close the app and reopen. Impossible to find on internet. What's up?

    Are you using the adjustment icon list at the bottom of the layers palette, or the group of adjustment icons in the Properties Panel?

    I too have experienced this, but only in the last few weeks. No clue as to what's causing it.

    Just for drill, try opening a curves adjustment layer from the icons in the Properties Panel, to see if the same problem persists.

    Also try Layer - New Adjustment Layer - Curves.

    Could it be a mouse-resolution issue? Are you on Windows?

    OK, it was just a thought. Still try getting Curves from those other interface sources, just to see what happens.

    Hi Anne, it's good to hear you still like your workstation. 

     

    Have you installed any new plug-ins, or software that alters the UI somehow that might have led to keystrokes being altered on the way to Photoshop?

     

    I don't ever remember hearing about a resolution to this (or very many people experiencing it).

     

    Do you see it go away, as Peter Noone above reported, when you close and restart Photoshop?

     

    -Noel

    Is the behavior the same from the menu? Layers > Adjustments > Curves?

     

    You can assign a keyboard shortcut to it if it works.

    Yes. Both of them. The latest is new download. On install it checks for update. Says I’m fully up to date.

     

    Not good enough, sorry.  Please indicate the version number you see in About Photoshop.

     

    Adobe's auto updater has proven most unreliable over the years.

     

    Have you tried trashing your Photoshop preferences yet?

     

    To re-create the preferences files for Photoshop, start the application while holding down Ctrl+Alt+Shift (Windows) or Command+Option+Shift (Mac OS). Then, click Yes to the message, "Delete the Adobe Photoshop Settings file?"
