CTRL+J for PS no longer working after update?

If you're like me and have both LR and PS in your photo editing workflow and have updated to the latest version of Photoshop (20.0.1), you may have run into the issue where your CTRL+J (to make a copy of your image in a new layer) doesn't work. Upon further investigating you may find that a lot of your menu items are also grayed out. I found it extremely frustrating the first few times it happened. Here are some solutions i've come across:

  1. Wait for Adobe to fix the bug. This is not an option for me.
  2. Take this opportunity to jump ship and move to a different editing suite. Tempting but I'm too lazy to learn a new platform although I've heard there are some "better" and "less expensive" options. Hmmmm....maybe...Adobe has been less helpful recently.
  3. Open image directly into Photoshop (as opposed to opening from LR). This totally sucks for my workflow.
  4. Open both Photoshop and LR. Then from within LR, right click the image and select "edit in Adobe Photoshop cc 2019" This is ok, I guess. When I can remember to do it this way.
  5. Roll back Photoshop. To do this, open Adobe Creative Cloud and navigate to Photoshop CC (v 20.0.1) click the down arrow to view the menu options then click "other versions" pick the most recent update that's not 20.0.1. This seems like the best way but I'm too lazy (I don't use Photoshop that much anyways). Hopefully the next update will have the fix so I'll just wait until then, less for me to do so less for me to muck up, haha.
So for me I've been doing #4. Hope you found this useful!!

** NOTE ** This post updated Jan. 16, 2019. I just noticed an update for Photoshop in my Creative Cloud Desktop App. This update was released Jan. 14th, 2019 and has a fix for the issue in this post. YAY!!!

Yeah I to noticed the bugs and it drove me nuts so I did the last option and rolled back to the previous version

Waiting till I read that they have fixed all the bugs before I update again

You'd think they'd fix such a big bug quickly, right? Oh well, maybe I'm just expecting too much, lol.

Thanks for stopping by!

Up until now they have been pretty good witht he updates thats why this one caught me by surprise, I thought I had lost it initially till I looked it up and found out it was a bug

·

Yeah! Me too, then I just blamed my computer and just suffered through it for the few images here and there but I 'm working on a project now and figured I'd better spend the time to fix it before I get into the thick of things. lol

Thats what happened to me as well had a project I needed to do quickly so I stopped and took the time to find out what was going on, Rolled it back and then was back up to speed
