Select and Mask Refine Edge is still useless in 2015.5.1

This task space seemed like it was a good idea, but the refine-edge tool was useless. I had high hopes that problems would be resolved in 2015.5.1, as the release notes proclaimed, but alas, it remains as useless as before. The one thread on this website was marked as "Solved" with the release of 2015.5.1, and comments were disallowed. Why?

I have had to resort to running 2015 and 2015.5.1 in tandem to do any masking that a channels mask can't handle. This is a royal PITA. WTF?

don ́t expect an answer from adobe.

i was just 2 hours on a phone with a clueless adobe guy.

they will tell you nothing changed to the tool (it ́s obviously a lie).


the new tool is basically useless.

try topaz remask instead.. yes it will cost you extra but don ́t expect any help from adobe... i mean you have to pay subscription anyway.. right?.. so why should they hurry to fix this 1 year old bug.
