This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Photoshop CC 2018: After latest update, "select and mask" tool gives program error

error message: "Could not apply the workspace because of a program error." appearing after making a selection and pressing the select & mask button in the toolbar. I get this error since upgrading to PS19.

Please provide another solution than deleting your preferences as I do not wish to do that. I have to many customisations and would loose too much time setting them all back. Can I maybe delete one singe preference regarding this specific error?

There are a couple other threads addressing this. The solution I found was unchecking "remember settings" for now

No one's found a solution to this issue yet aside from not using select and mask with 16 bit images. If you can't work around the bug, i'd suggest using CC2017 until they release a fix.

This isn't true, for some people my above solution works on 16bit images just fine.
