In PS 2019 when you create a depth map and go to Filter>lens blur, and activate the Depth Map, you can no longer click on the image to change the depth of field accurately.  Clicking does not pick up the accurate value form 0-255.  You have to move the slider to get all the values

I can only get it to adjust from 0-249. Thanks. I will have engineering take a look.

It was working better for you than me.  If I clicked on 255 it went to 52, if I clicked in the middle near the 128 range it went to 0

That's a known thing. Scale by proportional is on by default (new behavior) - but the link button is misbehaving which is a known bug.

That's what they get for changing something that everyone has gotten used to for 20 years!

Do you already know that in the Develop module if you draw a gradient and then type H to hide the pin, if you type H again it deletes the pin. In fact every second tap of H deletes the pin whether it starts visible or hidden.  I just tried Radial and Brush and the same problem.

Please update to 20.0.2. The issue with Lens Blur should fixed. Please let me know if that's not the case. Thanks!

Thanks Jeff, I am downloading now.  I'll let you know.  I still can't get Bridge 2018 or 2019 now to stay open more than a few minutes.  I have cleared cashes at startup and manually, but it still crashes constantly.
