Hello experts,

Recently, I have installed Adobe Photoshop CS6 Extended in my system but I can’t use the rounded rectangle tool properly and when I try to use this tool an error message occurs saying “Could not use the rounded rectangle tool because of a program error”. What should I do now? Have any idea to fix this issue ASAP? Thanks.

Hi Jeremy,

I suggest you follow these steps once to see whether it works for you or not :
1. Open your picture in your version of Adobe Photoshop keeping a proper background (contrasting).
2. In the layer panel, rename your background layer to whatever you want.
3. Set your shape tool menu to rounded rectangle.
4. Now go to Layer > Vector Mask > Reveal All. Vector mask will not be selected automatically and there will be no dotted line around the box which shows that the vector layer is not selected.
5. Now click the Mask Layer so that it is selected. You can see in the properties box that the vector mask is selected. The vector mask layer will also have dotted lines around it.
6. Select the rounded rectangle tool, the d
esired shape, and after selecting the required shape you will get your desired effect.

If these steps are followed and yet you find the same problem then I suggest re-installing your Adobe Photoshop version as some required files are missing or are not installed properly.
