Selecting and deleting/erasing an area causes [random] bugs in unselected area.

  • Updated 4 years ago
When I select an area of an image and hit delete (to erase the selected area), the area not selected will then drop to somewhere around 10-20% opacity or delete part of the unselected section in a spiderweb looking pattern. I also tried using the eraser tool (rather than hitting delete), and it still causes the unselected section to drop in opacity for no reason. This seems to be a bug in the new update, and makes photoshop useless to me until there is a fix. Luckily I was able to use Fireworks for most of what I need to do, but this slowed down my workflow considerably.

Which OS version are you using?
That looks a bit like the well known video driver bugs in MacOS 10.10 (which Apple is still working to solve).

Yes, I am on MacOS 10.10.3. However, I use photoshop all the time, and yesterday, I downloaded the new April 21st update, and that was when this problem started. It was not doing this before the update.

I deleted Photoshop and reinstalled it, and it seems to be working. The App may have been corrupted during the update. Hopefully we have no more problems :)

Probably not. The video driver problems on MacOS 10.10 are somewhat random, but are pretty widespread. Apple is aware of these issues and working to solve them.
