After updating Photoshop CC 2018 this morning I began experiencing crashes when attempting to use the Magnetic Lasso Tool. The crash only occurs with that tool. It does not crash when I use the Lasso Tool or the Polygonal Lasso Tool. Changing the cursor to "precise" had no affect. Updating my graphics card had no affect. Bypassing my Wacom tablet had no affect. Not loading third party plugins had no affect. And finally, restoring Photoshop preferences to default had no affect. Any ideas?

Hi Everyone,

This should be resolved in the update to Photoshop 19.1.1 that is now available. Please open your Creative Cloud, update Photoshop and let us know how it goes! 

Thank you!

Hi Hannah,

I received an earlier notification form Adobe (Mohit Goyal) about the update. One thing to mention, if updates do not appear in the Adobe CC app refreshing the app will usually bring them forward. To do that press Ctrl+Alt+R on Windows or Command+Option+R on the Mac. I found the new Photoshop, a new Lightroom CC, and Camera RAW updates doing that.

Right now I'm testing the new version of Photoshop 19.1.1.

Thanks for your help and update information as this issue was being resolved.
