I have a really annoying 'issue' with photoshop in that when i move/drag something i click once to grab it and again to release it.  It used to only 'hold' while i was holding the left button down.  Any ideas?

Ok. This has to do with your mouse setting not Photoshop :-)

- Click your Windows Start button > Settings > Control Panel
- Double-click the Mouse icon in the Control Panel to open the Mouse Properties dialog box.
- Unselect (Turn Off) the ClickLock check box

You can drag and drop windows in Photoshop without the need for a second click now.

Good Luck!
