I'm trying to create icons with lighting effects in Photoshop. However when I open up lighitng effects I do not see any of the guidline's appear. As shown below.

 

I have also gone into technology prefrences and checked "Deactivate native canvas" and unchecked "Enable Native canvas rulers"

 

At first I assumed that it was another problem with Windows 11. However I tried with on my Mac and I still had the same problem. The version of Photoshop that I am using is 23.4.1

Lighting effects uses the 3D engine which is now deprecated and being removed from Photoshop. You might be able to get it working by checking Deactivate Native Canvas but you would be better off re-installing v 22.2 for 3D features (it can be installed alongside the current version)
