After editing nearly 100 pix with 2020.1 (excellent results; best performance yet) I experienced my first system crash. Related to layer masking -- always a stressful area. Here are the details:
Wanted to replace a bland uniform sky so I used AI Quick Mask as a first step. The area I wanted to keep had some fine detail so I carefully masked around this on a magnified view of the image using the Zoom tool. At completion hit Apply and then Done to apply the mask as intended.
Some areas were in need of further touch-up, so I selected the masked layer and used the Refine brush to improve the detail at the edge of the mask. After a few Refine strokes the system crashed (Twice !)
Any thoughts on "why"? OK to use Refine on an AI masked layer?
(I reported this to Support)
In retrospect, a better way of capturing some edge detail was to use a Luminosity mask as a starting point, adjust Levels and Window , and then Refine as needed. When done, generate a New Stamped Layer for further editing. All worked fine -- good brush performance.
