Hi @gabrielar58077941 Go to Photoshop Preferences/Technology Preview and check “Disable Native Canvas”.  Quit and relaunch PS.

Hey, @gabrielar58077941. Welcome to the Photoshop Community. I'll help you figure this out. What specific version of Photoshop & the operating system are you working on? Does this happen after a series of steps?

 

Try this:

Go to Photoshop (Top left) > Settings > Performance > Advanced Settings... > disable 'GPU Compositing'
Click Ok to save changes & restart Photoshop.

 

Let me know if the issue exists.
Thanks!

Kevin, that feature is only available in the beta version now.  I've seen nothing about why this is the case, and it is a real pity because it seemed to fix just about any display related issues.  I'll probably sit back and watch as regards this thread, as I have limited Mac experience.   

 

If I had to take a stab at it, I'd be asking if the user has other pointer devices like a trackpad or tablet, and if yes, is the stylus a bit to close or sitting on the tablet, or is something vaguely skin like sitting on the trackpad?  Then I'd be thinking about the mouse API.

I had the same issue. Really irritating. None of the above worked for me until I updated my Mac software to, 14.1.1. Seems fine now.
