Photoshop is flickering to black when i do almost anything, pen tool or camera raw fliter or move the canvas.

 

I have latest Windows 10 and the latest Nvida drivers for my 2080 super, 

 

This issue has been going on for weeks. I have been looking at the fourms for just as long tried many solutions but nothing seem to work could use help on this.

Hi,

 

We're sorry about the trouble with Photoshop due to the screen flickering. Would you mind telling us the exact version of Photoshop you're using?

 

You can try enabling the option to Deativate Native Canvas from Photoshop by going to Preferences, then Technology Previews. Once done, quit & relaunch Photoshop to check if that helps.

 

Let us know how it goes!

Regards,

Nikunj

First, try disabling GPU in the preferences (Preformance tab). Any better?
