Just installed latest CC updates on LR and PS. Now quick selection tool is not working properly. Initial selection is OK, but as soon as I release mouse, and further attempt at making/extending selection acts as deselection. Now totally useless. PS effectively 'dead' for me.

So to clarify, it's as if the Option key is being helped down upon subsequent clicks?

If you restore the prefs or start in safe mode does it work correctly?

Yes, as if the option button is being held. However, I have just reset the options as you suggested, and that seems to have fixed it.

many thanks
