Photoshop CC ver.14.2.1x64: Preferences: General: "Zoom With Scroll Wheel" does not always work even though option is checked. Going into preferences and unchecking and rechecking the option does re set it for a while but eventually the option will stop working again. "Zoom Resizes Windows" does not work at all even though the option is checked. Both of these bugs have been present in every version of PS that I have had since PS 5 extended and on multiple computers.

Hi Jason,

I haven't heard of these issues before. What OS/version are you on?

currently, Win 7x64 but the problem goes all the way back to Win NT and to Win 8x64. I've had this issue for many years across multiple OS, computers and versions of PS. I can only assume it is an issue with PS

Hi Jason, I'm giving you the reason why "Zoom Resizes Windows" is disabled with Zoom with Scroll Wheel by design.

I can confirm that this continues to happen with the latest Photoshop CC as of today v 19.1.0 -

Zoom with Scroll Wheel works intermittently, it has to be clicked off and on in preferences then it starts working again.

Because it is random and just happens suddenly I cannot always be paying attention to what causes it or steps leading up to reproduce... It is a bug.

I have this issue too. Sometimes hitting the ESC key to exit an accidentally selected menu or switching tools brings it back but I can't get it working again today. Very annoying

Any updates or a solution to this bug? Very annoying when the scroll zoom stops functioning in the middle of an operation. Is Adobe ignoring that this bug exists?
