after updated to Photoshop 2018 version lots of things have changed the way they work and I think its first time I encounter lots of bugs in Photoshop's life (even if I ignore performance and user experience issues).
One of the Issue which is stopping/slowing-down my work is 'Select and Mask' feature. in v2017 we can also create auto mask selection, refine it and so on.. with the basic feature of refining selection. 2018 update this feature is not even work to its basic refineing edges of selecton already made and give a empty white mask completly ignoring selection already made!!!
This made me to re-install 2017 version.
Oh! I have forgotten to mention I have even updated 2018 version which includes some bug fixes. this update was unable to address this issues.

Installed Photoshop version info:
Updated version: 19.0 Release ( feature doesn't work at all)
re-installed older version: 2017.1.2 Release (working fine)

Just so you're aware, the old refine edge is still alive in 2018 and works great!
