Mismatch Pattern on Pattern View

Hi!

 

I've created many patterns using Adobe Capture on Photoshop. All good and work great (i.e. seamless) until I use the "Pattern View" option. In that view, the patterns are not seamless at all. Does anyone know what's going on there? Is there a workaround?

 

I'm imagining if I send the PNG version to someone who doesn't use Photoshop or is not design-software savvy (i.e. he/she just copies and pastes the PNG file next to each other), he/she would have to do so many steps to match the tiles. I would like to avoid that if possible.

Could you please post a screenshot taken at View > 100% with the pertinent Panels (Toolbar, Layers, Options Bar, …) visible?

Screenshot attached. To apply the pattern, I simply click the pattern from the library.

I've done a further test. But first, I have to clarify that the view's name is "Pattern Preview" not "Pattern View".

 

This is what I did:

  1. I saved the pattern as PNG in 1:1 dimension.
  2. Opened it on Photoshop and saved it as a new pattern.
  3. I opened a new file and applied the pattern (step 2 above).

 

The result is not seamless.

Have you bothered reading what View > Pattern Oreview does? 

Quote from 

https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/pattern-preview.html

»Once you enable Pattern Preview, you'll notice the workspace area outside of the canvas boundary will repeat the contents on the canvas.«

 

So if the canvas you applied a seamless Pattern to does not have the same pixel dimensions it naturally will not be seamless anymore.
