I can't figure out why Pattern Preview mode does not work for me. I have the latest version of PS CC and when I select Pattern Preview, I first get a window that says the preview is only visible in OpenGl enabled document windows. There was a tutorial online on how to change settings in the NVIDIA panel to enable this, but my panel does not look the same as the tutorial, so that was a no-go.
If I just click OK, to keep going with Pattern Preview mode, I get another window that says Pattern Preview works best with smart objects. I tried changing everything to smart objects, but Pattern Preview still does not work (it does not show any repeating objects). None of the suggestions on this support site have helped me. ????
I am having the same problem. I just downloaded the latest version and now suddenly the pattern preview doesn't show. I need this for my job. It was working perfectly and the only change is the new version.
I had the same problem and someone helped me in the firefly discord. There is an Nvidia update and once I installed it I got the pattern preview back. Not sure if that's your problem but worth the try. I hope it works for you.
