This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Photoshop 21.1.0: "New Layer" and "New Group" buttons in the Layers panel stay down after clicking on it and become unusable

After a few hours it does this, the buttons to create new layer in the layers panel are highlighted a lighter colour. It then won't let me click on them. It recently changed the add new mask button too. Restarting photoshop fixes this, is there anything i'm doing wrong?

Jonny, I also have encountered this annoying bug since the most recent update.  You can work around it without restarting by going up to the layer tab on the upper bar.  From there you can add a layer or a mask.  It's an annoyance for sure, but saves doing a restart.  I hope they fix this soon.
