Drag and drop image from Bridge into PS no longer drops dead center

This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Photoshop CC 2018: Resize Image During Place not working anymore

In CC 2017, I can drag and drop images from Bridge into PS daily/hourly and they always drop dead center whether dropping into an open document or just dropping in. Others have indicated dragging from one doc to another causes same issue.

When I do the exact same thing on the same computer in CC 2018, they drop off to the middle right.

Is this an unintentional problem like the Alt key modifier issue in Windows or ? Please let me know how to get what works in 2017 to also work in 2018.

drag and drop from bridge or finder/explorer is not applied to center anymore, but to where you placed the cursor when you let go of the mouse. this is a bug:

the shortest workaround I have found is this:

if you are dragging multiple documents you need step #2

1. drag and drop

2.select all layers Ctrl+Alt+A

3. when smart guides are active hold Ctrl and drag to center and snap Horizontal and Vertical centers
