I have photoshop CC through Creatuve cloud. My keyboard shortcuts stop working, then photoshop really slows down, then crashes. I've been through Adobe support five times now, and it works for about 1/2 hour, then acts up again. Any suggestions/reciommendations? Thanks - Wendy Caro
Please try to reset the preferences of Photoshop CC.
Mostly the corrupt preferences cause unexpected behavior.
Please refer following forum thread on "How to reset the preferences of Photoshop"
Please let me know if still faicng the issue.
HI. I've tried getting rid of the preferneces, which works for about 1/2 hour. I've been to adobe technical support at least 5 times, and get temporary help, but the problem keeps coming back. i've had photoshop since version 4, and never had this problem. I'm on Mac OS 10.8. Thanks, Wendy
hi. I'm on OS 10.8. There is no crash report. the keyboard shortcuts just stop working, photoshop really slows down, and then freezes. I have to force quit to get photoshop running again, but 1/2 hour later the povlem starts all over again. Wendy
Wendy is it all shortcuts or a few specifics? Do you have other apps running that might steal shortcuts away, like screen grabbers etc.? I have come across references for Wacom drivers causing the same problem for some shortcuts. If you have a Wacom tablet, make sure you have the latest driver. They go through more drivers than a taxi firm that doesn't pay it's employees.
OK, other users don't seem to be seeing that behavior.
So we need to look at what on your system is different from other users': third party plugins, utilities, other applications, drivers for hardware (tablets, special keyboards, etc.), disk problems, etc.
n PS CS6 you could hide a selection with command h.
In PS CC that no longer works. What is the new kwrboard equivelant.
I'm also having an issue where my Photoshop keyboard shortcuts aren't working properly (i.e. hitting "b" for brush, "z" for magnifying glass tool, etc) the command shortcuts such as Command+S for save, or Command+H for hide work fine. I'm running the most up-to-date version of Photoshop CC on MAC OSX 10.9 Mavericks. Any assistance is appreciated.
I have the same problem but it appeared just after I updated OSX to Mavericks, I solve this by switching app, sometimes I have to do more than one time to make work the shortcuts again.
There have been reports of keyboard shortcuts, and Workspace problems with Mavericks. I am a PC user so have no idea if the fixes work
Other users are definitely experiencing this.
When selecting text with a missing font, and choosing not to replace it, keyboard shortcuts stop working until you reopen the PSD.
Mac OSX 10.9
I am also having this problen since the update to Photoshop CC 14.2. The 14.2.1 update did not fix this and the problem was not there before 14.2.
My problem is when a file is first opened, the key short cuts do not work. You need to physically click on the selection tool before any of the key shortcuts work. After clicking on the sleection tool I can then use all the key shortcuts as normal. This behaviour is repeated every time a new file is opened. Photoshop does not crash.
I am on a Mac, OSX 10.8.5
I am also using a Wacom Intuos 5 with the latest driver 6.3.7-3.
FYI, I have seen significant slow down across the Adobe CC apps since a big Creative Cloud update a few weeks ago that introduced Photoshop CC 14.2 and InDesign 9.2 (which continues to be MUCH slower than CS6).
The problems and slow down are NOT repeated on other identical Macs in our studio that do not have Wacom tablets. I believe the finger can be squarely pointed at the Adobe/Wacom interface and both sides need to take a good look at their inter-workings.
