I am currently using the latest version of PS CC - updated to the latest "bug fixes" and all.
Each time I go to use the direct selection tool, i select points of a shape, PS locks up, and quits automatically without fail.
Are there any suggestions as to what I can do to alleviate this problem? Thank you for any help
This is the only time it locks up? What are your system specs and operating system?
Have a look at your GPU settings in Preferences > Performance? Try truning off 'Use GPU Acceleration? Also look in Advanced settings, and try changing those. If this helps, then look at updating your video card drive from the card maker's website.
Thanks Trevor! That seemed to have worked immediately - im running an ATI Radeon HD 4850 512 MB card, so, i assume its not strong enough anymore.
Either way, the solution you provided worked, so thank you!
