Photoshop: Placing an image inside a group turns group visibility off for ALL frames of animation except current

PS CC 2017.1.1 Win 10.

When placing an image (or dragging and dropping) inside a group, it turns visibility off for that group in all other frames of a frame animation (except the current frame).

This happens regardless of which frame is selected in the timeline when placing. And regardless of whether the checkbox "Skip transform when placing" is checked or not (in preferences/general).

And if a new image is placed outside the group, that image is visible in ALL frames that were affected by the group, but not in frames that were not affected (where the group visibility was off for the frame before the placing). Even if "New Layers Visible in All Frames" is unchecked in the Timeline panel settings.

And if you place an image inside the group on one of the empty frames, the group visibility turns off for all frames.

Pasting a layer into the group or outside of it leads to the same result. The layer becomes visible in all frames previously affected by the group bug.

Creating a new layer in the group doesn't cause this problem.

Try it for yourself and confirm whether this is true, and something's gone wrong with group visibility in frame animations.

Very frustrating for anyone who works with groups and frames (which I assume is anyone using frame animations).

Any help?

Recently I posted a complaint about the clone tool in PSCC. I have not seen any response. Last night (6/21/17) I checked the clone tool on same machine in PSCS6, and on a network machine with PSCC - same "edition" as the one I am complaining about. All three of these others work perfectly. Marten, I am beginning to wonder if my complaint ---- and yours - has to do with a recent ADOBE upgrade that has a strange reaction in some mother boards or video cards but not all. Can you replicate your problem with the same software on another computer? Dick Dougall

Hi Dick, I'm afraid I can't at the moment. Have you been able to replicate it on your machine?

I have two Windows 10 machines in my network - upstairs and downstairs. I do most of my photography upstairs but I have all the software downstairs that I can work at either station. My photo printer is upstairs so that may help explain. Motherboards of the two PCs are different. I have a problem with the clone tool in PSCC upstairs but not with PSCS6. I have NO problem with the clone tool downstairs in PSCC nor PSCS6.
