Anytime Photoshop comes up with an unexpected problem, I look at corrupt preferences
If you need a quick and dirty way to restore your preferences, here's a way you can do it using a keyboard shortcut on launch:
Windows - double-click the PS icon to start Photoshop
Immediately Hold down CTRL-SHIFT-ALT
You will see a delete preferences dialog. Click “yes".
Thanks for the tip!
Unfortunately nothing happens when I try this.
I don't get any dialogue box at all when ctrl-shift-alt.
Thank you .
Following the other method to re-set the preferences worked!
(Maybe Photoshop was starting up too fast on my machine to hit the hotkeys in time?).
Now I can re-size stuff again!
First time I've ever had an issue like this with Photoshop but now I'm glad to know about this solution.
Thank you sooooo much for your help, gener7 !
You just saved me so much stress and trouble!
Definitely put this link in your notes. I think Preferences every time someone tells me it started happening recently.
Glad you are back in business. You can be a hero to someone else when they get stuck like this too.
