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.   ????

Hi there,

 

Thanks for reaching out. I'll need more information to help you with this.

 

Could you please share the system info of Photoshop from Help > System info > Copy & paste into a text document > upload to Creative Cloud files (https://assets.adobe.com/files) and share with us?

 

Pattern Preview is a GPU-dependent feature. Please go to Edit > Preferences > Performance > check 'Use Graphics Processor' & restart Photoshop.

 

If you face any trouble with enabling the GPU, follow the steps in this article to troubleshoot the integration between the GPU & Photoshop: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/troubleshoot-gpu-graphics-card.html

 

Let me know how it goes,

Thanks!
