Try disabling this option in preferences and restarting Photoshop to see if it helps
If that dosen't help try enabling Deactivate Native Canvas again restart Photoshop
Have you tried updating to version 23.1, that's the most recent version, something to try, enabling this option in preferences and restart Photoshop to see if it helps
Seems to have disappeared with a seconc Photoshop re-start
Photoshop 23.1.0 - A second vertical ruler appeared at 30 inch mark; cannot move it. how to get rid of it without losing the two basic rulers?
Try going to Window menu > Workspace > Reset [Current] Workspace and let us know if that works.
Thanks. I saw that in another problem post and had tried it, to no avail.
I'm not certain if this is a new feature I'm unaware of or a bug. However, when I use Photoshop 23.0.0 on my Macbook Pro (OS 10.15.7) a second set of rulers pops up (image attached). They go away if I shrink the viewable window to something pretty small, but obviously that's super convinient. These rulers also go away completely if I plug into a secondary monitor. It only seems to happen when I use the laptop on it's own.
Thanks in advance.
Is this a bug? It keeps happening on my version of photoshop (which is up to date right now) and I have to hide the ruler in order to get it to go away. How do I fix this?
Hi there,Sorry to hear that. Which version of Photoshop are you on? Could you try resetting the preferences of Photoshop and see if that helps?
Note: Make sure that you back up all your custom presets, brushes & actions before restoring Photoshop's preferences. https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/preset-migration.html
Assuming you are using a recent/current Photoshop version, display issues can often be fixed by deactivating Native Canvas in Preferences. This is unchecked by default, so resetting Preferences would not have helped if this does turn out to fix your issue.
I've branched your post from an unrelated thread about measuring with the ruler tool. I don't know why this is happening, but I have seen a couple of posts with similar screenshots. In this thread the OP restarted twice and that fixed it. Can you try that?
First: Restore your preferences using this manual method: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/preferences.html#Manually Does it work correctly?If that doesn't solve it, you can quit Photoshop and put the Settings folder back.If it does solve the problem, I would like to get the folder of settings to try and figure out what is bad with them.
Second, if restore prefs doesn't work: Go to Preferences > Technology Previews... and check "Disable Native Canvas" - then restart Photoshop. Does the problem still occur?
The screen shot is self explanatory. On my M1 MBP I have a converted PSD file with artboards that the rulers will not position where they are meant to be.
Please go to Preferences > Technology Previews… and uncheck the “Enable Native Canvas Rulers” checkbox. Then restart Photoshop. Thank you.
I asked about this in a separate thread here just yesterday. Wish I would have found this one first (I did search around before posting).
Anyway, I ended up uninstalling and re-installing Photoshop, a rather desperate solution that did work.
Thank you for reporting the issue. We have been able to reproduce in-house and a bug has been logged.
In the meantime, the best way to avoid the issue is to go to Preferences > Technology Previews… and uncheck the “Enable Native Canvas Rulers” checkbox. Then restart Photoshop.
I'm attaching a screenshot here to explain what's happening with the rulers in Photoshop (Up-to-date).
This has been the case ever since I upgraded to the new Macbook Pro 16 with the M1 Pro chip.
It's only happening on my external 27" monitor. It seems the rulers keep the dimensions of the Macbook screen.
Would truly appreciate any help on how to fix this.
Thanks in advance!
Disabling "Enable Native Canvas Rulers" worked indeed.
Thanks a bunch for that!:)
You're welcome 🙂
