Photoshop: Nudging using arrow keys after scrolling in the libraries panel

Ok. Seems there's a bug if you try and nudge content using arrow keys after scrolling in the Libraries panel window.

I'm using Windows 10 on a new PC with factory fresh install, running the latest 2020 version of Photoshop CC.


  1. To recreate the issue, first create a new document or open an existing one with one or more objects on one or more layers. A basic box or image will do.
  2. Open or go to the libraries panel/ window.
  3. Open an existing library from the drop down or create a new one containing a bunch of dummy library items so that there's enough content to force the scrollbar on the right of the panel to appear. Alternatively add just a few objects and shrink the height of the panel. The key is that you need to select the panel, and then do some scrolling up and down within it so scrolling is the last thing you've done in that panel.
  4. Now move back over your document and hover over any object, for example the box and right click and chose any layer from the pop up menu.
  5. With that new layer on focus, use your arrow keys to nudge that layer up a bunch of times, then down a bunch. Doesn't matter if you hold the shift key while nudging.
  6. Keep your eye on the libraries panel. 
  7. For me, if the scroll bar handle is at the top of the libraries panel and I nudge the object in the document down using the arrow keys, then the scroll bar in the libraries panel scrolls down first until it hits the bottom of the panel, then the object scrolls on the document. Likewise, scroll in reverse and again once the scrolling in the libraries panel hits the top, only then do the arrows nudge the object on the document.
Doesn't happen if you chose the layer from the layers panel after scrolling in the layers panel window, only right clicking over the object in the document.

Anyone else have the same issue?

I'm still getting this issue but I'm guessing no one else either has the issue or can re-create it.
Anyone from Adobe able to assist or check this out for themselves?
Frustrating on larger projects with lots of Library items.

Hi Dave, I wasn't able to reproduce this issue. Are you using any peripherals like a Wacom tablet?

Hi Jeffrey, no peripherals like a Wacom or other tablet. I'm using a logitech MX Master 3 mouse and Logitech Craft keyboard if that helps but cant see that being the issue.
This PC is a relatively new (Nov 2019) top spec Dell Precision 3630 running Win 10 64 bit, Nvidia Quadro RTX 4000, i7-9700k, 32gb etc. My previous PC was an older Dell Precision but had the same issue but no Wacom or similar tablet used, just older mouse and keyboard.
All latest system updates installed, running the latest versions of all Creative cloud software.
I thought updating the PC might have fixed the issue but didn't.
