This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Adjustment panel opens document properties.

When working on a document in Photoshop CC 2019 (**that's been brought in straight from Lightroom**) on Windows 10, if you click ANY of the adjustment icons from the adjustment panel (curves, levels, vibrance, etc.) all that happens is a little "Document Properties" box pops up. You don't get the new adjustment layer in your layers panel or the ability to actually make the adjustments. However, by clicking the small "adjustment layer" icon at the bottom of the layers panel and selecting any adjustment from the pop-up list, it works as it normally does. The issue seems to just be in the adjustment panel with the individual icons for each adjustment. Again, this issue is only when the image is brought in straight from Lightroom. If I open PS manually and "open" the same image, everything works normally.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Paste not working in Photoshop CC2019.

I just installed the new CC on my PC/Win64/I8700/32Gb RAM from a few days and some essential functions don't work:
- Select area - Edit - Crop (but crop tool works)
- Paste -> Copy image in Chrome, than I go in Photoshop and Paste it's inactive 
- Select area -> Copy is unavailable in the menu

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled New Photoshop Update Won't allow layer editing windows 10.

I'm using photoshop cc 2019, with the latest update (20.0 WAS WORKING) but this latest version does not allow me to edit layers.  I can not ctrl+j to duplicate layers, or add adjustment layers.  Everything is greyed out.   I can hold alt+drag to duplicate layers, but again, I then cannot edit these layers. 

Specs:
Razer Blade laptop (same issue on my desktop)
i7 8750u
16gb ram
1tb pcie ssd
windows 10 1060mq gpu

This problem doesn't seem to be fixed in 8.1, at least on my computer.

Because the problem is coming from Photoshop.

As I've said several times before on different threads, it seems to be caused by the new Home Screen in Photoshop. So if you go to Edit/Performance/General and check the box 'Disable Home Screen', Photoshop will perform as usual. NOT a problem with LR as Andrew said.

This works. (you need also to restart Photoshop). I hope they will fix the issue asap.

I too had the same problem going from LR to PS.

I found a work-around as some others here did as well in that if I simply saved out the file then pulled it back in everything worked normally...

BUT  one day I forgot and I had been working on a complex selection when I went to save the selection, it was greyed out...  Oh Oh!

If I saved the PSD file and then closed it just to reopen it, I Would have lost my selection.

I read here that if you disabled the Home Page in PS it might correct the problem, so I started thinking of all things related and extrapolated a theory, and it worked for me, saving my selection and everything worked normally.

I simply undocked the working window so that it was stand alone, and that fixed it for me.

Your mileage may vary, but if it worked for me it may work for others and I thought I'd put my 2 cents in   :)

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lightroom & Photoshop issues.

I recently had to rebuild my PC so now I run an AMD Threadripper 1950x with lots of RAM. I’m running Windows 10 and I have the Photography package i.e. Lightroom & Photoshop. However, I have ran into some problems when I use “edit in Photoshop command” in Lightroom, Photoshop opens up as normal but if I try to do duplicate background or delete layer all the controls are greyed out, same with any of the selection menu. When I load Photoshop and then open the same files all the above controls work as expected. I have tried reinstalling without any change do I have some setting wrong or is there something else going on here.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Shortcuts no longer work in Photoshop when opening images through Lightroom.

Since the recent update, I am not able to use shortcut keys after opening images in Photoshop from Lightroom (Edit in Photoshop menu item in Lightroom)  I also notice that many menu items in PS are grayed out. I have figured out that if I open Photoshop first or if I close my file and reopen in Photoshop it works. Will this annoying glitch be addressed in a future update?

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Photoshop CC 2019 has been a terrible update, will there be a fix soon?.

Photoshop cc2019 keeps crashing. or mentions not enough RAM. And when I select "edit in photoshop" from lightroom It doesn't allow me to edit. I have to have Photoshop open first and then import from lightroom It's a workaround. I love using photoshop but these last week made me regret updating. 

I hope you guys can fix some of the issues. In any case merry christmas and all that.

When I open an image from Lightroom Classic for editing in Photoshop (Edit In > Adobe Photoshop CC 2019), I face the following issues: The menus and commands in Photoshop CC are disabled. The keyboard shortcuts don't work.

I have tried Disabling the home screen in Photoshop and opening Photoshop prior to opening Lightroom Classic CC, but this work around does not help.

Any suggestions,
Thanks,
Bruce

Try the workarounds not in one of the full-screen modes.

the December 2018 upgrades to LR CC Classic and Photoshop are causing problems. When I launch PhotoShop from LR CC Classic I can't open Layers in PhotoShop. Other tabs in PhotoShop are also affected. Anyone have a fix for this problem?

Photoshop menu items grayed out. This happens when I open photoshop from the icon or from Lightroom.

Alright guys. Two months. Two months passed without resolution of this annoying bug.

We are talking of two professional programs, made by the same company where we must use workaround to make them fully compatible.

With CC subscription, I really  hoped for more frequent updates, not to wait for cumulative patches every now and then...
