Since the last update, my icons on the bottom of the layer panel lock up and I can’t figure out why or how to resolve the issue. It starts with the new layer icon and gradually includes all of the icon. I’d love any help I can get in fixing this issue.

Hi Ginger,

I and some others are having the same issue. It has been reported at the link below, so if you go to the problem reported and then click "Me Too" up the top. It is being looked at and any new information would be welcome.

Thanks for providing the link. Right now, my photoshop is frozen (or lagging so much that it appears frozen) and it’s very frustrating. It’s been stuck in the layer styles for a good three minutes.

You're welcome. I usually have to save my work and restart Photoshop and if my Photoshop freezes I have to use Task Manager to force Photoshop to quit.
