CS4 eye dropper values disappear after grouping mask layer with next layer

Have an adjustment/curve with a mask (layer1).  Under layer 1 is a second layer with just an image needing color correction(layer2). When I group the top layer1 with  image layer2,  the colour values disappear in the info pallette. Never did this in any other version of PS..... Strange?

Yes!  I am confused too!  But, no, I am positive of the approach as I saw it in use.  Can you read a .psd image from an e-mail?  (I'm really stupid about most things.)  If yes, then I can send each step - otherwise...
Do these steps and watch the result.
Open an image.
Make a selection.
New layer via copy from the Layers Menu Icon (L1 - blank)
ON LAYER 1 !!!
CMND + New Layer Via Copy (creates ...)
   L2 and it will have the marching ants outline of/from Background. 
(Option+Layer Mask and the selection appears in solid black in the layer mask box)
NOTE:  You don't have to create that blank L1 - you can 'just' from Background/selection CMND+New Layer and get the outline copied to L1(in this case).  What I saw involved first creating a blank layer as above - really.  The next steps, make the selection in L2 appear and the L1 disappear (deleting is cheating...)
Wish I had a clue
Is what I've done - so far - right?
How to make the layer/selection appear in L2.

  • Personas 2 SP2: field values disappear after entry?

    Hi Folks - we made a couple of changes to our Personas 2.0 flavors for IMA1N and IMA2N. The flavors work fine in our development system. After transporting the flavors to our QA system we now see a problem with data entry. When data is entered into certain fields and the enter key is pressed, the data values disappear.  Tab-caching is used on these flavors but I am not sure if this is the issue.  It is possible that I missed something when building the transport in /PERSOS/ADMIN_UI.  I selected only the flavors to be transported.
    Can anyone think of a reason why this would happen?
    Thanks!  Jeff

    Hi Jeff,
    Does the tab caching indicator turn red? It is possible the QA system or the data used has additional validations that prevent the tabs from being selected to continue the tab caching routine.
    If everything looks OK and it is still an issue, please create a support ticket.

  • Why App Tab disappears after cleaning the manhine with CCleaner?

    I had App Tabs like yahoo, gmail, facebook etc. But, after cleaning my machine with CCleaner, I found, all of them has gone. So, is there any solution present for this? CCleaner is a good software. Many users uses this to clean their machine. So, what is the use to App Tab if we keep loosing it after doing a lot of work to set them in the browser? Although, I love firefox. Thank you.

    Hi TonyE, Thanks for your solution. But the technique used in the previous version of firefox to remember tabs was great. It was independent from session. we used the drag and drop application to make tabs there. By d way, great work. I appreciate The Firefox Team.

  • PSE 9 Group layer with Previous Layer?

    Is there a way to group a layer with a previous layer in PSE 9 ... this
    was available in PSE7 under Layer-Group with previous layer.

    It's now called "Create Clipping Mask" but it works exactly the same way. Adobe just changed the name.

  • Pasting onto layer with a 'layer mask'

    I've set up some images with layer masks, but i'm problems pasting items on to the layers that are masked. When ever I paste, photoshop (cs3) creates a new layer. Surely there is a way to paste onto the selected layer, and not to create a new layer?
    any tips?

    I'm not sure why you would want to do that. Two options. 1) Either paste to second layer and create clipping mask (ctr-alt-g??, layer...create clipping mask) if you want the transparency of the original layer to dictate the transparency of the second layer. Or, 2) just duplicate the mask from layer one onto the newly create layer by holding alt and dragging the mask to the new layer. Option 2 is what I think you want...

  • Values disappear after saving the Purchase Order and Goods Receipt PO

    Our client is using SAP Business One 2007 A(8.00.181) SP 00 PL 47, When they raise Purchase Order for service item, the details and amount disappears automatically after adding the document and similar case for Good Receipt PO. But when they book directly in AP invoice the details and amount will appeared.So please help on solution for the above problem.
    Best Regards,

    Dear Mr Burton,
    If I understood correctly you cannot see the information inside the document you added. This made me think that it is a GUI issue.
    In the second answer you specified that when you try to open it again you'll receive the error message saying that there is no total value or total and I assume there is no information in the document.
    I believe the second issue is a consequence of the first one.
    I was suggesting to open a message on the portal (the message that requires the S number from the partners) in order to investigate the issue better.
    However, as you have an error message that pinpoints to certain fields it could be possible to see the information in the tables. Do you have this information?

  • InputFile value disappears after openning file

    I am using Jdev 11.1.16
    Since a moment ago something weird started happening with an inputFile component. Right after you browse and open a file, the filename suddenly disappears from the component.
    It doesn't matter if autosubmit is true or false, the filename suddenly disappears, is lost immediately after selecting a file.
    I created a brand new page to isolate the issue with other stuff from the page,and the same behavior. What's going on?
    I see some other posting on this issue, but no solution. This sounds like a bug as other mentioned, but I don't think so. A couple of days I worked with the inputFile component a no issues.
    I have no clue on this.... Help please

    Finally, I found the solution. The property usesUpload was missing in the parent form.
    <af:form usesUpload="true">
    <af:inputFile label="Upload:" value="#{managedBean.file}"/>
    <af:commandButton text="Begin" action="#{managedBean.doUpload}"/>

  • Drop down list in Table Control - Value disappeared after pressing ENTER

    Dear Gurus,
    I have a problem in one of my development where I used a table control in which one field is a drop down list.
    I used VRM_SET_VALUES and VRM_GET_VALUES for populating the values from the programand not use any domain level value table for that field.
    My problem is when I select one value from this list , and pressing enter , the value get disappeared. But if I use a domain for this field with value table then everything working properly.
    My doubt is am I doing some miss coding or using the VRM_ function modules improperly ?
    I am sharing some code with you
    in PAI :
          id            = 'ITAB-FIELD3'    "This is drop down list element on screen
          values        = values[]    " even it is not the expor parameter...it will work..
         id_not_found   = 1

  • OTBI  - Prompt value disappears after running report

    Hello All,
    Fairly new to the cloud work-space with its reporting tools.
    When we try to run the report, the prompts are visible for the first time the report. Upon selecting the values, and running report, the prompts disappear. I tried setting the prompts on the side of the page as well as top of page. Both times, the prompts disappears.
    Any thoughts?
    Many thanks!

    We need to add a tag in the instanceconfig.xml file to achieve this.
    Stop the services and place the below given tag in instanceconfig.xml
    The tag can be placed anywhere between the server instance tags in instanceconfig.xml.
    Restart the services and login into the application and check by setting some values in the prompts.
    Hope this helps.

  • Eye Dropper tool in After Effects Not working Properly

    I am using Adobe After Effects CS5 on a mac. And most all of the eyedropper tools in the software are not working properly. They always select a way different color than it should be. What is wrong?
    One day they just all decided to not work. Its really frustrating. Its been a few weeks now.

    Well, For some strange reason its working just fine today. I did restart my computer yesterday and after that it seems to be working.
    I haven't recenitly messed with my hardware acceleration/graphics card or monitor color profile. So if that was it, then it did it on its own.
    None the less its working now. Thank you for your help!!!

  • Field value disappears after save/close/reopen

    I've got a single page form where all but afew fields are bound to an xml schema. Two of the unbound fields -Names and Address- are causing me a bit of a headache. I can fill in the form, either manually or using a data import and all of the fields show up just fine. However, when I save>close>reopen the values in the Names and Address field are gone.
    I even tried deleting and recreating the field just in case I had some kind of hang up and it still doesn't work.
    Does anyone know what's happening?

    The work-around for importing pieces of data into a bound form involves importing the xml and then parsing it to fill only those fields you're looking for at that point.
    You can find more info on that process in the following posts
    Mark Schenecker, "Import an xml file into adobe designer field using javascript" #3, 5 Jul 2005 1:02 pm
    David O'Hanlon, "Retrieve data from XML file" #3, 2 Jul 2005 5:51 am
    Also note that you can always export as xdp to get ALL the field data -but if you export as xml it only exports the data tied to the schema.
    On (re-)import, the xdp will attempt to fill all of the field in the form. The xml will attempt to fill all fields bound to the schema -even if the imported schema has no entries in the fields, it considers them tto be empty fields and will replace any data existing in the form with the blank from the schema.
    And one more point - it is possible to bind fields to more than one data source. This doesn't mean that you can bind fields to more than one schema -rather that you can bind a field to both a governing schema and webservice. Unfortunately I'm not terribly skilled at this yet so I hesitate to give instructions. It's in the documentation, though.
    Good luck!

  • Norton Vault disappeared after update to 2014 with Firefox 27.0

    I just checked my Add-ons Manager to discover that NIS 2014 and Firefox v27.0 are not compatible so Norton has been disable.
    I'm not sure who's responsible for making it compatible but the issue needs to be addressed quickly. I use Firefox as my default browser and everything I do requires access to Norton for my passwords. NIS 2014 has been out for quite some time so this should have been addressed by now.
    Can someone help me with this?
    Thank You

    hello michael, in principle it's always the job of an addon's developer to keep it compatible with new versions of the browser.
    norton is one vendor which generally provides a compatibility update to its toolbars and extensions as soon as a new firefox version is released. please run the norton liveupdate repeatedly & until all components are up-to-date. in addition make sure that the toolbar is enabled under firefox > addons > extension afterwards.
    for more details please refer to https://community.norton.com/t5/Product-Update-Announcements/Firefox-27-Support-for-Norton-Toolbar/ba-p/1089863

  • Object disappears after pressing enter key

    I need to attach the transaction J1B3N to keep the connection objects.
    Perform the steps as the help of SAP:
    Object links to other SAP objects
    You can make an object link to SAP objects that are not shown in the possible entries list. To do this, proceed as follows:
    In the standard system, there are already two special screens for the module pools SAPLCV130 and SAPLCV140 for the linked SAP object.
    You must create two new screens with the same number for the module pools SAPLCV130 and SAPLCV140 .
    The processing logic must follow that of screen 1204 in program SAPLVC130.
    Create function module OBJECT_CHECK_XXXX (XXXX = object name)
    If the object can be classified, this function module already exists .
    Otherwise copy the function module for linking equipment DOCUMENT_CHECK_EQUI and change it as required for the new object.
    After performing these steps can see the screen with the number of document tab Link Object, but I am having the following problem: I inform the document number field and press Enter this number some of the screen.
    Already remade several times but can not find the point I'm failing.
    Thank you,

    Hi Michely,
    could you please check if the necessary object is correctly mainatined in structure MCDOKOB too. Here the following coding part could be useful to analyse why the value disappears after hitting enter:
    Main Program     SAPLCVOB
    Source code of   LCVOBU02
    IF NAME CP '*# '. ENDIF.
    IF NAME CP '*# '. ENDIF.
      KEY1 = NAME.
      KEY1 = ' '.
      LEN1 = 0.
    Here the keyfield is read from table TCLO and then the length is read from structure MCDOKOB for example. So it is necessary that the same data is maintained in table TCLO and structure MCDOKOB to grant the correct working for new individual objects.
    Best regards,

  • Layer.translate() making layer disappear

    Experienced a strange problem trying to move layers with layer.translate(). I had a pretty peculiar case of a bunch of 1px tall and 400px wide dividers as simple artLayers stacked on top of each other. Then I tried to move them vertically to even spacing, i.e. move first one 10px, second 20px, etc. However what happened is that seemingly randomly some layers disappeared after the translate()-operation. When layer disappeared, layer.bounds was correctly [0, 0, 400, 1] before operation, and [0, 0, 0, 0] after operation ie. the pixels really seemed to disappear. I also tried making sure there is no selection and setting the layer as selected before moving, but same results.
    What helped was making the height bigger, e.g. adding an almost invisible dropshadow. It's like Photoshop CS6 would make a rounding error in bounds calculation and decide it became empty. Anyone with similar experience, workarounds?

    You are aware that the lines will all end up atop one another with those settings?
    The AM code seems to provide a different result from the DOM code in that the Layers have proper bounds.
    #target photoshop
    var HEIGHT = 5
    app.preferences.rulerUnits = Units.PIXELS
    var doc = app.activeDocument
    for (var i=0; i < doc.artLayers.length; i++) {
        var layer = doc.artLayers[i]
        doc.activeLayer = layer
        doc.resizeCanvas (doc.width, doc.height + HEIGHT, AnchorPosition.BOTTOMCENTER)
    //    layer.translate(0, -HEIGHT);
        moveLayer (0, -HEIGHT);
    function moveLayer (theX, theY) {
    // =======================================================
    var idmove = charIDToTypeID( "move" );
        var desc3 = new ActionDescriptor();
        var idnull = charIDToTypeID( "null" );
            var ref2 = new ActionReference();
            var idLyr = charIDToTypeID( "Lyr " );
            var idOrdn = charIDToTypeID( "Ordn" );
            var idTrgt = charIDToTypeID( "Trgt" );
            ref2.putEnumerated( idLyr, idOrdn, idTrgt );
        desc3.putReference( idnull, ref2 );
        var idT = charIDToTypeID( "T   " );
            var desc4 = new ActionDescriptor();
            var idHrzn = charIDToTypeID( "Hrzn" );
            var idPxl = charIDToTypeID( "#Pxl" );
            desc4.putUnitDouble( idHrzn, idPxl, theX );
            var idVrtc = charIDToTypeID( "Vrtc" );
            var idPxl = charIDToTypeID( "#Pxl" );
            desc4.putUnitDouble( idVrtc, idPxl, theY );
        var idOfst = charIDToTypeID( "Ofst" );
