Simple answer I'm sure but I can't figure out what I did. When I make the brush larger or smaller I was getting a red overlay preview, but now it's not there. It coincided with me updating to the most recent CC update, so I'm not sure if this is related.
Thanks in advance for your help
There was on issue with the ALT shortcut combo in version CC 2018 19.0, which was fixed in 19.0.1
Try holding the CTRL + ALT + right click on the mouse and move either up and down or right to left
Hello and thanks for the reply. Control+Option (if forgot to say that I'm a Macbook Pro user) works to make the bush bigger and smaller. The part I seem to be missing is that up until today I would have a red overlay inside the brush that would show the size, opacity, and hardness of the brush. The red overlay is missing now. If you have any ideas what I did or more importantly how to get the overlay back, I'd love to know. Thanks again.
Not all brushes have hardness control.
with normal, round brushes, I see the red size/hardness indicator
Yes, that's exactly what I'm missing. I have a normal round brush selected but I do not have the red size/hardness indicator. Apparently I have either accidentally switched it off or it has defaulted in the update. I just want it back on. Anyone have an idea on this? I have been looking through the manual without much luck
With help from Adobe support the Preference file was corrupted. A new one was created and now my issue is resolved. Though I'd follow up.
How does one create a new preference file to get this overlay back?
If you have Photoshop CC, you reset Preferences from its General tab
This didn't work for me.
Any other options?
Thanks a lot for this thread. Helped me find the solution for me.
I didn't have to reset the preferences, I just had to set the color of the Brush preview again:
(Preferences / Cursors / Brush Preview)
just in case it helps someone googling the same issue 🙂
i got the same problem and i did the same settings like lumo-obscura. but the hightlight is still not to see...... 😞
argh... I reset the preferences for nothing... the hardness/softness of the brush still does not show anymore after updating to v 12.2 cc
Any other suggestions?
A complete new install of photoshop did it, and was the fastest way to solve this...
If you have any Overlays running such as G-Force Experience (In-Game Overlay) or RivaTuner Statistic Server (Show-on Screen Display), disable them. That usually does it for me.
well i've tried everything and still nothing on the photoshop cc 21.2.4
would be nice if any of the adobe team could help me with some script file or whatever, i'm getting no answers..

BUT on second Mac in version 22.0.0 it is GOOD!
So Adobe, hurry hurry, please 😄
Same. It just stopped while I was using the program. It works in Liquify. Also, I get a read out of the values now instead of color.
Windows 10 Home, all updates.
Go back to version 22.0.0
Thanks so much !! That worked. I hope Adobe will fix this issue in future updates. I was about to pull my hair out trying to figure out what had gone wrong. Have a Merry Christmas.
Adobe come on 🙂
This version is good 😉
I have not tried 22.0.0!
This version is not good
Same here I've tried everything and it still not working!!!
