Why "ALT + Drag" for duplicate isn't working on photoshop cc 2015 since 2/3 days? Even just dragging shapes or images isn't working.

Since a couple days I found out this issue on my Photoshop and my colleague's too (photoshop CC 2015.1.1 on a mac).

I can't duplicate shapes or images using alt+drag or even just drag them into another position. If I want to do so I have to use a cmd+j shortcut in order to copy a layer, then cmd+t to select the shape and then finally drag it. This makes my workflow much slower.

Any ideas on how to fix this?

Photoshop hasn't had an update since the beginning of December.

It sounds like you have something else on your system intercepting the alt-drag events.
