Photoshop CC 2015: Select tool creating excess visual selections and copying itself when dragged

When using the select tool it creates smaller squares around the edge of the selection, then when you move the selection box it copies itself hundreds of times much in the way windows XP would when it crashed you dragged the window around.

Additionally could anyone let me know how to download a previous version of the software as I need to regain some after effects plugin functionality.

I am using a GTX 760 on windows 8.1, playing with the GPU settings in the preferences had now effect.

Thank you

Which version of Photoshop are you using?
Have you updated your video card driver from Nvidia's website?

This problem came when I updated to CC 2015, it didn't happen on previous versions.

Just checked and my video card drivers are up to date.

After turning on the graphics processor setting in Settings > Performance, it seems to disappear.

I have similar issues, black lines all over the place when i move anything. I have had to turn off the "Use Graphics Processor" option because with it on my photoshop crashed when every time I tried to close everything and this is the temporary work around for this. The only thing that I can do to stop this from occurring is to move objects whilst using control + t. Unfortunatly this doesn't help with the black lines that occur when scrolling down the page.
2 images attached-
1st Shows what happens when scrolling
2nd Shows when moving an object down the page

What OS version are you using?
Have you tried updating the video card driver from the GPU maker's website?

I'm on Windows 8.1

Updated the driver, didn't help.

It only seems to happen on Art boards, pre-artboard PSDs function normally.

I have a very similar problem with GPU accel turned off. But photoshop crashes constantly with it on.

Didn't have any problems with 2014. GTX 670.

OK, we can reproduce this, always with GPU drawing off.

I am having this same issue.
My machine is a Dell Inspiron N4010 Laptop running 64 bit Windows 7.

I have tried unchecking "Use Graphics Processor." and then clicking OK. When I try to close the program, it crashes saying "Adobe Photoshop CC 2015 has stopped working"

Opening Photoshop again, I find that the box remains checked; none of the changed settings were saved.

Photoshop CC 2014 did not give me these issues on the same machine.

After using Windows Update to install several updates to my system, I was able to finally uncheck "Use Graphics Processor." Photoshop no longer crashed when exiting, however I am still having this issue.

Here is an animated GIF of the issue I recorded this morning.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Selection Tool Bug in Photoshop cc 2015.

This selection bug is maddening. When you select something, other selection lines popup. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0HDtb... If you zoom in and zoom out again it shows it right. Please help. Never did this before in previous CC. This is Windows 8.1 running on Mac through bootcamp. Intel iris 5200 video card. Latest drivers installed.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Did Photoshop CC 2015 Break Itself? - Marquee, Artboards, Freezing.

Since the CC 2015 update, Photoshop has had several issues. First, it will freeze for indiscriminate amounts of time, seconds to minutes, and then pop back into action. This is basically unacceptable as I work in a time-limited production pipeline. Photoshop "marquee" selection tools and "Select all" leave out of place geometric dashed lines all over my canvas. It looks broken. Thirdly, "artboards" seem to be similarly broken, where the left and top edge of artboards are defined by a single black line, but the right and bottom lines are missing, and two vertical lines seem to cut through the vertical and horizontal middle of the artboard. Things were fine before, and now they're broken! Help! -- i7 5930K, 32GB DDR4, 500GB 6Gb/s SSD, 2 x GTX 980 SLI

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled (Photoshop CC 2015) Unusual selection highlights when using marquee tool.



I get random variants of the above when making a selection with the rectangular marquee tool (but not the elliptical). Zooming "fixes" it, but it reoccurs with the next selection.

Same issue here. The "Use Graphics Processor" option under performance preferences is greyed out for me (and not selected) so I'm unable to see if this option would work-around the problem.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Photoshop 2015 copy and paste canvas slowdown and artifacts.

Ive noticed now that whenever I copy my canvas selection and paste, Photoshop becomes incredibly sluggish and creates what looks like a selection artifact in the canvas. If I then try to hide or show layers the canvas is also unresponsive and requires me to minimize then maximize Photoshop in order to redraw everything. This is getting incredibly frustrating now as Photoshop is unresponsive for at least 10-20 seconds when this happens, and it happens almost always. I have an i7 and an Nvidia 970 so my hardware isn't the issue, I've also never seen this behavior with any previous version of Photoshop.

I have this problem too, also with 'Use Graphics Processor' turned off. Very annoying and distracting.

You need to get this fixed Adobe. Its not a graphics driver issue because it worked fine in 2014 with the same graphics drivers.

Same problem for me. Windows 7. Graphic Drivers are up to date. Just started subscribing yesterday for the first time after useing Photoshop CS6. Can't do anything without "Select All".Can't even use "Deselect". Whish I hadn't changed. Very dissapointed

I have since contacted Adobe. They got me to close the programe and then open it with the "Shift" key held down. When I retried the "Select" tool and "Select All" they all worked perfectly. Hope this may be of some help."

I was having the same problem until I go to Preferences > Performance and into the Graphics Processor Settings all the items and let the Drawing Mode in Normal. So I close the dialog box, open again and select the Drawing Mode in Advanced and clicked all the other items, as you can see in the picture. I closed and reopened the Photoshop and the problem gone until now...

Well if you use the graphics Prozessor..this bug is gone.
But we cant use the GPU because the whole Photoshop crashes when closing a window or while saving.

We're working on an update to correct this issue.

In the meantime you can install and still use CC 2014 following these instructions: https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-clou...
