Although this may feel like an achievement Adobe now having fixed the issue, it is not. This should not be happening in the 1st place. These are basic tool functionalities in these expensive software packages.

This fix took far too long for Adobe to rectify. One other frustrating thing that appears to have happened is now the contact sheet feature has been removed from Bridge - why! It was hugely useful feature.

When you buy a new car, they don't sell them without doors, and then say they will get them to you in a few weeks time.

It took a while, but I see Adobe fixed other bugs as well! GREAT NEWS! Now I can use Photoshop CC. NEXT I'll check into getting Bridge CC fixed (can't scroll on second monitor), but I don't even know if Brige CC has any new features since Bridge CS6, so that's a lower priority. I'll just keep using Bridge CS6.

Polygonal Lasso tool the 'Del' key is not working.


In the Polygonal Lasso tool the 'Del' key is not working to delete last point clicked!
it's really frustrating.
I hope will be fixed in next minor update!
I'm on windows 7 64bit or 32bit.

Yup, the the Polygonal Lasso tool the 'Del' key is not working properly, you have to randomly click twice to remove the previous point clicked. Please fix it, Jeffrey and the team.

Nope Chris, not completely. The delete key doesn't work every time you create a new point with polygonal lasso and press delete key. Please ttry it first, you'll notice that it doesn't respond every time. Create new point (Cnp from now on), Cnp, Cnp, Cnp, Cnp, Cnp, press delete key.Cnp, Cnp, Cnp, Cnp, Cnp, press delete key. Cnp, Cnp, Cnp, Cnp, Cnp, press delete key. Cnp, Cnp, Cnp, Cnp, Cnp, press delete key. Delete key doesn't work every time, about 8 out of 10 times works.

Vesa, are you on Mac or Win? It's working correctly for me. Are you clicking in a point and not moving the cursor before hitting delete. if you hitting delete after clicking in a point, it feels like you're hitting the delete key twice to delete one point but you're actually deleting two.

Hi, I'm using Windows 7 64-bit, photoshop 14.2.1 x64. Polygonal lasso isn't still working properly, sometimes you have to double click the delete key in order to delete a "lasso-point". And if you press delete key twice it will remove only one "lasso-point". This isn't so serious as the previous problem was, but it's little bit annoying and confusing,
