          First thing to try is resetting your Photoshop preferences during Photoshop start up. Press and hold Shift+Alt|Opt+Ctrl|CMD immediately after clicking on the start Photoshop icon. You should get a prompt if you want you preferences deleted reply yes.

              Hello, John gave both the Mac and PC shortcuts, Try just holding down Shift+ Option+Command as soon as you click on the Ps icon to start it up.

                Hi Fred,


                Is there more info in this report than what you've pasted? Have you been running fairly stable for a while and this just started happening? If so, have you updated anything else recently?

                  That's only the first few lines of the crash report - to know what's happening we'd need to see the rest of it.


                  But you're running on an Intel machine, not a PowerPC machine (that's what Translated means).

                  So you're probably just hitting bugs in the Rosetta emulation software (which Apple has dropped).
