Color picker bug in photoshop CC

Jul 6, 2013 10:15 PM

Tags: #photoshop #bugs #64bit #cc

Hey guys,

Has anybody seen this bug yet.

 

photoshop error.png

 

This will pop up on a new document when trying to change colors. It shows with the color picker, the swatch panel, hitting d or x. However alt-backspace and ctrl-backspace work.

 

Rebooting photoshop does not help, nor does shift, alt, ctrl on reboot.

 

At first I thought it was the document itself, but it also occurs with file>new>web 800x600.

 

If it helps, the error does not show with no document open (all documents are closed)

 

And now for my specs:

    I just tried to reproduce the problem as you have described it.

     

    It's not happening for me.

     

    I compared your system info to mine, and there are actually very few differences.

     

    Differences.png

     

    This leads me to think that something specific to your system may be at fault.  Since it's involving color, could it be your monitor color profile?  What profile are you using?

     

    Does the problem stop if you temporarily associate the sRGB IEC61966-2.1 profile with your monitor (i.e., via the operating system settings)?  I can go into more detail how to do this if you need.

    Could you post the contents of the PSErrorLog.txt file from your Photoshop preferences directory?

     

    Could you check File -> Scripts -> Scripts Event Manager and see if you have any event scripts setup? Normally they should be disabled and no scripts defined - but some sneaky software has been known to add and enable them.

     

    And last guess: go into Preferences and disable both checkboxes under Extensions, then restart Photoshop and see if the problem still occurs.

    OK, that's really weird. Somehow you're getting an error from code that is trying to detect the mode of a layer, except you shouldn't be hitting that code doing the things you mention.

    And I don't immediately see how that code could get hit.

    Alright, time to do some debugging.

     

     

     

    (the first 2 errors come from an automation plugin or Flash Panel doing something wrong)

    OK, I found a few obscure ways to hit that code.

     

    When you change the color, the application notifies anything that depends on the foreground/background color of the change.  One of those things is the gradients in the vector tools. Try using a vector tool and changing the fill gradients to something that doesn't depend on the foreground/background colors (like the rainbow preset).     But that call happens even with no document open, so it isn't the most likely culprit.

     

    Another thing that gets notified is the text palettes - and they only get hit when a document is open. If they have some corrupt information (like in the default styles) that could create some problems.  So you might try trashing the Default Type Styles.psp file from the Photoshop preferences directory.   NOTE - just move the file to your desktop, because if it is the cause, I'll need that file for debugging!

    Photoshop shouldn't be anywhere near .NET binaries.

     

    I doubt the GPU registry entry would be involved.

    I tried loading all the swatches and styles, but still can't reproduce your error.

     

    There is some state that isn't being cleared, or something that we're missing.

     

    Have you had a chance to try my suggestions above (post #9)?

    Any of the files could theoretically be corrupt.

    But I don't think swatches could cause this.

    Preferences might (but you reset those), or the Default Type Styles, or possibly styles  -- so the next thing to test would be resetting the styles palette to the defaults.

    The default type styles is now a copy of the default file, created the day that the app was built.

     

    And if you had some huge presets loaded (or a LOT of them), resetting the presets to the defaults would reduce the time needed to read them in at launch.

     

    But now I'm at a loss to explain how you're getting that program error.

     

    Somewhere, something has a bad color mode, and it causes a problem when you change the foreground/background colors without another dialog being open.  I'm starting to wonder if it's an uninitialized variable somewhere.
