Hi Dear Adobe,

I've noticed a weird behaviour of my beloved Photoshop.
I tried to send an email to any Photoshop Support address, but couldn't find any...so i could not attach the screenshots.

The problem looks like this:
1. create/open document
2. new layer
3. fill layer so we have a solid background
4. create few black layers
5. render - flares (the idea is to have anything on that black background)
6. set the blending mode to Screen
7. resize the layers so you will have them smaller than the canvas
8. group the flare layers
9. create new layer (or any adjustment layer) above the group and create clipping mask

you will notice some fine lines that traces the group layers. You will still have the blending mode, only that few lines as a stroke appears.

Tried this on other computers too. Same problem.
I can provide further details, if needed, also video/screens.

Best Regards,
Marius Goleanu.

that's a really odd bug. I'm able to reproduce in CC15.

the line are visible even when the clipped layer is turned off. Only un-clipping it will make the lines go away.

Hi Marius,

If you save and open the file, do the lines persist? if so can you post your file that exhibits his issue?

here is the PSD file, with the error.

the error persists even if you save and open. Also it persists even if you show/hide the adjustment layer or the clipping mask.
