    Photoshop CC 2018 cannot enter values into Curves Adjustment Layer

    Rick_Cloran

      I am running the latest version of CC 2018. I tried entering specific input and output values into a Curves adjustment layer. The input box allowed entry. Everything goes blank as soon as I click on the output box. If I use the actual Curves function (Image > Adjustments > Curves) I can input both values. I tried doing the reset by shutting down Photoshop, pulling the CC 2018 settings file out onto the desktop, then restarting Photoshop. While it reset most things, it did not change the behavior in a Curves adjustment layer. I still could not enter an output value.

       

      Does anyone have a fix for this?

          Did you reset your Photoshop Preferences? What are you using?

            Yes, I tried that and tried the route of actually removing the settings file. Neither fixed the issue of not being able to enter an Output value when using a Curves adjustment layer.

             

            CC 2018 latest updates applied. Windows 10 Home running in 64 bit mode. Everything else that I typically use seems to be working properly or has responded to the reset tool option.

             

            Here is the first part of the CC System readout.

            I can't really capture a shot of the problem. When you place a point on the Curve it opens the input and output boxes. You can type a value into the input box. The output box remains visible at that point. As soon as you click on the output box to enter a value both the input and output boxes disappear. This happens whether I have multiple layers in the stack for an image or if I am trying to add a Curves adjustment layer as the first layer above the background. As I noted, I can still use the input and output boxes if I go to Image > Adjustments > Curves [CTRL-M] , just not with a Curves adjustment layer.

              I believe there is a bug in there. When I first open the Dialog with Ctrl+M  the value and the field are not displayed

               

              If I move the mouse cursor over the grid values display but not in an input box

              If I click on the White or Black input sliders the fields display with values and are useable using the dialog's reset button will also remove the two fields display
