If I make a selection on a layer and then try to use the Render Fibers filter, the rendering gets hung up and nothing happens. Without a selection the rendering works fine.

Ah, this happens if you make a selection on a layer. A selection on the background works.

Escape or Command-Period still works to stop it.

Hello , I have encountered the same problem . You should eliminate the 1.2 update or adobe is doing out a new update that includes the correction of this error ?

I said it will be fixed in the next major release.
This was found just after 2015.1.2 was released.

I'm sorry, maybe I did not understand. I have installed the latest update (version 1.2) released in January 2016, and the error is always; what I do not understand is whether it will be corrected in another division updating that still has not come out.
