Photoshop layer comps is not remembering position or appearance despite having those switches turned on. This is happening across several files.

are you updating the comps as you move things around or change vis?

Sure am. I've been using layer comps ever since they came out.

not sure what the problem could be then... i frequently use layer comps and haven't noticed any issues at all. Maybe it has something to do with redraw/cache? If you zoom in/out or move things around does the layer comp eventually catch up? There was a thread not too long ago where someone was having issues with layer visibility not working in certain situations.

I'm getting a strange bug, may be related. I have 14 Layer comps using visibility only. I updated one (intending to do all eventually) to use position as well. Without having done anything else (no moving ANYTHING), a few of the layers in some of the other comps have jumped around

This issue is caused specifically by using "Transform" (Command T) to move any objects from one position to another. You can move by the arrow keys. You can move by clicking and dragging but you CAN NOT use "Transform" to move anything in layer comps for positioning purposes.

Thanks. Now it's time to re-post the resolution in the 700 other forums I've seen this issue reported. If I can save even just one other person from the headache this was for me then my suffering was worth it.
