Photoshop CC 2019 - and I'm sorry/not sorry to say ctrl+J doesn't work, quick selection tool doesn't work, cntrl+d doesn't work, ctrl+0 doesn't work and that's just for starters: get it together Adobe

Are you working on an image that was opened from Lightroom?

This happens when you open a file from Lightroom and it launches Photoshop.
Once Photoshop is open, you can open another file from Lightroom and then everything works ok.
The workaround would  be to open Photoshop before opening any image from Lightroom.
The desired solution is Adobe to correct that bug.

And then remember to not close  Photoshop but just the tab containing your image, so you can edit another image from Lightroom without having to first close LR, reopen photoshop, reopen LR. I guess by the time this gets fixed, Ill be used to this workaround routine.

This is "inconvenient" enough that there should be some solution. Ps2019 was released a while ago now.

Sorry, Reynold, however I opened 2019 before opening the image from Lightroom.  Need I go on about my issues with how Rush requires an updated version of Win10 and the clues to this were buried.  Don't get me wrong, I like and enjoy Adobe's products just they release programs before the testing to discover issues is complete, over and over again.  Will look forward to 2019 being resolved at some point in the future.  When you have a deadline and the software one relies upon doesn't work it does piss one off.

Photoshop needs to be open prior to launching Lightroom. Not prior to open the image from Lightroom. (If that makes a difference for you)

Thanks for your answer Jeff, tell me, where does anything tell us easily this is the procedure before we get all mad? And, in prior versions which got opened first didn't matter.  How many years did I fire up LR click an image to edit in PS then PS started and everything worked as advertised? Many.  May I suggest you make things easier not more difficult.

I'm using Windows 10 and updated to PS 2019 yesterday. Since then it's been nothing but issues! I have been sitting here going through the threads and honestly I am exhausted!!!! I finally found how to disable lorem ipsum or whatever. My problem now is that once I clicked "Edit in Photoshop 2019" from LR, the image opens but I cannot access any of the File, Edit, Image, etc., tabs. I click on them and they are all greyed out! I can edit my image but can't resize it until after it's saved and reopened! As stated previously this is ridiculous and does nothing except make me even more irritated! Adobe needs to recall PS 2019 and fix about 13 pages (and growing) of issues! If I uninstall PS 2019 and reinstall the last version will I be able to work with the saved PS documents from version 2019?

Another workarounds:
1) Edit>Preferences>Workspace and unchecking Open Documents as Tabs
2) right clik on tab and move to new window.

Why even have this as a vote to get fixed?  This is core functionality from one product to another that has worked for years; please fix it.  The workaround is not an acceptable solution.
