When clicking on the CC Library dropdown within Photoshop CC, it snaps back to being in a closed state once I take my finger of the mouse button. It won't remain open in order to choose another library that I have in there.

  • Frustrated, because with CC's continuous updates also comes unwanted bugs like this.

You don't say which OS. It's working just fine on my Mac running Yosemite, and I don't recall a problem with it on my Mac running El Capitan. I can click on the drop down arrow and it stays open whatever else I do until I close it. I have it running docked in icon state, but I pulled it out and it still worked just the same.

If you resize the panel a bit, does the pop-up work normally?

Holy crap -- that solved it... Still, Adobe should make a correction for this, but I can now see why the drop down wasn't functioning properly. 

Thanks for your help!

Yup. Have a bug logged for the team to investigate.

Note: We haven't been able to repro this exact issue, but there was another minor redraw issue that resizing the document would fix. Was just a good guess on my part. Let me know if you have exact steps to reproduce the issue. Might have something to do with a particular library, the length of the library name, or the # and kind of items inside the Library.

I think what happened is that I created so many different libraries, which extended the height of the dropdown list and caused this problem if the height allotted to the Libraries panel was insufficient to accommodate it when it expanded.

I am having the exact same problem as Alex - the dropdown snaps back to closed when I release the mouse click. I have a large list of color libraries that extends the dropdown list past the size of the window, and the only way to fix it every time is to pull the window out and resize it which gets tiresome. I'm running Sierra on an early 2013 MBP. Please fix this soon!
