I'm sure this is something humiliatingly obvious, but I've searched and cannot find the answer.
My transform box has changed from a solid blue line to a dotted black line.
How do I turn it back to blue?
It still functions.
I know how to hide and show transform controls. This is not the issue.
I have reset prefs, and even uninstalled / reinstalled PS keeping nothing.
Could you please post a screenshot taken at View > 100% with the pertinent Panels (Toolbar, Layers, Options Bar, …) visible?
Is a Selection active?
@c.pfaffenbichler thanks for the reply!
Here's a screenshot of everything.
(For some reason I cannot edit the op.)
No selection is active - this is in every document, even new ones created from scratch.
My paths are also black, not blue.
I'm sure this must be a really obvious setting somewhere, but I cannot find it.
It started after the most recent update about 5 days ago.
Paths are also black now.
The option to change the path colour is disabled.
I have switched "Use Graphics Processor" on and off in Performance preferences and restarted to no avail.
All was fine before the last PS update on this machine - blue paths & transform boxes.
Have you tried changing the Advanced Settings (Photoshop > Prefernecs > Performance)? (and restarting Photoshop each time to make the settings apply …)
I am facing the same issue. Any luck with this?
I had to uncheck my graphic card checkbox on the performance tab because my photoshop was flickering. but when doing that I get the dotted transform controls.. which are annoying.
Hi, FYI, on a PC, on Ps 23, when I disable the GPU acceleration, I lose the blue color for the paths, but do not get the dotted lines.
I have the exact same issue. When I open a document and select a layer, it shows those dotted lines and not the blue transform rectangle. It mostly happens when opening up an existing photoshop-file. But not every time. Sometimes it works just fine. Only fix i found was closing and restarting PS until it is back to normal. Totally annoying! Please help!
(P.S.: I am running the PS 23.3.0 version on Mac OS Monterey 12.3.1 - iMac 40GB Ram, 3GHz Core i5, 4Gb Radeon Pro)
I got the same problem today when I updated my "pilots" and my graphic card
I found a solution guys just keep using the graphic processor and try to change your graphic card in my case I was using intel and then I switched to Nvidia using the panel in the home screen of the pc it's not a big problem so don't worry it can also fix it self
Go to your stroke pallet and be sure it in not on a color or int the case of the dotted line same issue, make sure your stroke is no set wit a dotted line.
