While using PS CC on a Macbook Pro with Mavericks, 16gb of RAM and 80gb of space on an SSD I get crashes while using the gradient tool. I'll make a curve, fill the mask and select the gradient tool to use in the mask. If I switch from black to white in the palette using "x" I almost always get a crash.
I've run all the updates I can, needless to say this is extremely frustrating.
Sorry for the troubles. Have you submitted any crash data to the Adobe Crash Reporter system? I wanted to check there to see if we are already tracking and aware of the issue already.
Also, are you using Ps CC (14.2.1) or Ps CC 2014 (15.0)?
Hi Steve, yes I've reported in the Crash Reporter.
I could have sworn I told CC to install the 2014 version, but PS says 14.2.1.
CC and CC 2014 are different versions - it sounds like you are still launching the old version.
