Suggest turning off automatic Photoshop updates

Regrettably, I have been letting Photoshop update itself automatically. No more. After the last two updates, nothing but problems. The first update deleted all of my keyboard shortcuts and actions. It took a week to recreate everything. The second update left me with three error messages when I start Photoshop. Tech support tried to resolve the error messages but their final resolution was to "Uninstall and re-install Photoshop." If I do that, once again I lose my keyboard shortcuts and actions. I'm about ready to return to Corel PaintShop Pro!

Initially I was gung-ho about the CC subscription because I would always have the latest and the greatest. I'm now of the opinion that always having the latest and the greatest, at the expense of having my work flow destroyed, is not a good thing.

For other people who depend on Photoshop for a good portion of their income, I would suggest turning off automatic updates and only updating when you know you have some down time to recover if the update creates a mess.
