You have to increase the density, and you might need to run the fill a couple times, as the pattern is small. Or also increase the pattern size.

It's hard to tell, but from the thumbnail of your pattern, there doesn't look like much is there, mostly transparency. Have you tried other patterns?

Hi!

Did you have anything selected on your layer when you tried to fill? Or, were you trying to fill a whole layer?

Also could you show us a screen shot of your pattern? I agree with Chuck--your pattern is not visible in the preview window, and I am wondering what you captured.

Also, what version of PS are you using?

Thanks,

Michelle

Looks like it is a problem with the preview. If I continue adjusting the settings and say ok, It does nothing. But then when I go back in and hit ok without any adjustment to the settings, it works.

I've JUST clocked it! Been stuck on this for months.
You can't create a pattern over a transparent overlay. You need to create a solid pattern layer and only then will the pattern layer style work!
