    Hi,

    Been working contentedly on photoshop all week, and then today when I've tried to cut and paste a highlighted selection (very small - about 400x40 pixels, one color) - it crashes.

    I've tried a restart, run Disk Utility, unplugged my PB and taken the battery out for a few minutes....I still have this problem.

    Any advice on a solution most gratefully received.

    Thanks

    • What version of Photoshop?

    • Have you applied all recent updates from Adobe?

    • Have you tried removing the Photoshop preferences file?

    • Are you trying to paste it onto another layer or create a new one?

    • Does it do this in other documents or just this one?

    • What about if you copy an image from Grab and paste it into a new document, does it still do it as well?

    Thanks for your reply

    Photoshop 8

    I'm not sure if I have applied all updates, but I've had it almost a year and used it regularly thus far without a problem.

    I've not tried removing the preference file.

    I'm trying to paste into a new file - at first it crashed when I tried to paste, then it crashes when I just copy.

    I think it just does it on this file. I've not tried a lot of other files, but I have tried one other file and there's no problem. (at this point, I guess it's just that particular file that's corrupted for some reason).

    Not tried the Grab yet.

    Thanks for your suggestions.
