PS Elements 9 - layers pallete no longer working

Oct 26, 2013 1:35 PM

Tried to do my usual layering but the usual drop-down of choices -- ie., Normal, Exclusion, Color Dodge, etc. no longer shows up.  Also, the little lock icon appears.  Have lots of images that I have worked on before using layerin in PS Elements 9. 


Any ideas what I can do?

    Resetting editor preferences should fix your problem. Try below steps:


    1. Close Elements.

    2. Launch the Photoshop Elements Welcome Screen and hold down ctrl + alt + shift as you click Editor.

    3. Continue to hold the keys until you see a message box asking if you want to delete Photoshop Elements settings file; click Yes. Elements will open with default preferences.
