I have a problem with hue/saturation filter. When I choose e.g. reds, I can't move any color range handlers. When I click on handler - usually nothing happens. I need to click mouse button over a dozen times on handlers to be able to move them. Using a Wacom tablet it is easier but still extremly hard. It seems to be annoying bug which slows down image processing time.

As usual, it would help if you gave some basic information like the version of Photoshop, your OS (Mac or Windows) and the version of the OS. I can't reproduce this on MacOS Mojave and Photoshop 20.0.3. One mouse click is all I need.

Photoshop is a current version. System is Windows x64 Pro. After system reinstallation - I got the same behaviour.

”A current version” is meaningless. The exact version is important, because there might be a known incompatibility between that version and Windows x64 Pro. Another possibility is that your Wacom drivers interfere with the mouse drivers.

Photoshop is 20.0.4 version. Windows x64 Pro is 1809 version. Compilation ID is 17763.379. Mouse: Logitech M720 Triathlon with driver Options  7.12.43. Tablet Wacom Intuos Pro with driver 6.3.31-4. 

I have just installed trial version of Photoshop on my laptop (W10 x64 Home) with the same result. Mouse is not used at all - only build in touchpad. No additional devices. Just fresh installation of OS.

Howdy Marek,

Have you tried without the Wacom tablet involved?  I ask cuz I do things like this all the time and I just double-checked that I still can.  Are you using an adjustment layer or are you directly manipulating your image via Image > Adjustments?  Does it happen in both cases?  Have you tried using just your mouse?

Thanks,
David

Hi David :-)

Of course, as I described, I tested Photoshop on 2 computers:
1) Clean Windows installation, no mouse (touchpad used).
2) My workstation with tablet and mouse as above.

In both cases I used adjustment as a layer. The mouse or pen got the same result: it is almost impossible to move the handlers. I was intrigued by your question about direct manipulation on image via Image/Adjustment. Here everything works perfectly!
