I am trying to use the Lighting Effects filter on the latest version of photoshop on windows with the latest version of Nvidia GPU drivers (1060 6gb card) on Windows 10. When I open the Lighting panel I can add lights and move the sliders but there are no handles to adjust and move the lighting itself. 

I have tried the Show > All settings and that doesn't work as well as the show transform controls workaround too. 

Pulling my hair out with this issue. Such a pain. Cannot find a fix and getting more and more frustrated with these PS bugs. 

 

Any help would be much appreciated. 

 

Thanks!

Lighting effects, like 3D uses the old Open GL code. To use that, go to Preferences - Technology Previews and check Deactivate Native Canvas. Then click OK and close then restart Photoshop. Dave
