It is not likely that older versions of software will be updated as technology advances. That is part of the reason why they develop new versions of software.
Adobe tech support is focused on their new products and generally do not support issues with older software versions - it's unfortunate, but that is how they manage their support. These forums are their second line of support, where they send people with older version issues, and a number of Adobe employees do support this and other forums. If you have a question and ask it here you might get a helpful reply... or you might get a useless one like this might seem to be.
I was hoping this was not the case since CS5 isn't really that old...not really in a position that I really want to fork out money on a new one. I'm thinking of doing a time machine reinstall back to the previous OS. Thanks for taking the time to reply, though...
Moving this discussion to the Photoshop General Discussion forum.
Justin the community in this forum may have additional suggestions regarding running Photoshop CS5 on Mac OS 10.10.1. You may also want to search the forum to see if similar errors have been reported by other individuals.
I'll follow your advice and do a search...I've done a general Google search which led me to this forum, but not within the forum itself.
Justin you can perform a search in the Ask a Question field at Photoshop. Google does a good job of indexing discussions but the internal search, within the forum itself, can provide additional useful answered discussion results.
Tried to post a response to the redirected thread, but couldn't find a way to do so. I had a handful of suggestions to try, but in the meantime noticed that there were updates to both OS X and cs5 that hadn't been there earlier. Once I performed those updates, it solved the problem I was having. Thanks so much for the help...if you want or are able to post these to the thread, please feel welcome to do so.
