I'm just not happy with this version of PS - it's buggy and frustrating. 

  • When using Filter, Render, Lighting Effects PS crashes every single time. 
  • I've also reported on this forum the problems with the Adjustment Layers and using Blend  modes. They are not working as they should. 
  • The Constrain Link doesn't work. It's a bug. . . and yes I know that you don't hold Shift to maintain aspect ratio now but when you un-check the Maintain Aspect Ratio constrain link on the toolbar and then use transform it still maintains aspect ratio. . .  un-checking the link should disable aspect ratio shouldn't it? The shift key + transform disables aspect ratio but doesn't correspond with the constrain link on the tool bar.
