I'm sure you must be aware of this problem but I can't find another foirum to complain to. I have been using photoshop since 'Photoshop 2' (more year ago than I care to remember) and the pen tool has always been one of the major tools I use. The Pen tool isn't working as it should and its been like it for some time. When is this going to be fixed? In the unlikely event that you don't know about this; when clicking points/vectors on a pen tool curve or straight line the pen tool points/vectors disappear until you either refresh the page by moving the image or enlarging/reducing the image, which is a massive pain. In additon if you wish to move a point, again it doesn't reflect the movement until the file is refreshed! when will this be fixed?

Hi, I have split your reply to your own thread, as it did piggy back a "how to post a bug report thread".

That said, it is unfortunate you did not read the messages contained in said thread, as you did not provide the requested information: your Ps version number, your operating system, a screen capture of the issue...

Go to Preferences > Technology Previews... and check "Disable Native Canvas" - then restart Photoshop. Does the problem still occur?
