I'm unable to see the cursor 70-80% of the time when I'm working in Photoshop CC 2020. I found a similar question on this forum in 2016 but there was no answer to the problem. Has this issue been fixed?

Thanks,

RB

Hi there,

 

That does not sound typical, could you please let us know the operating system you're working on?

 

Could you please try enabling "Legacy compositing" located in Photoshop's Preferences > Performance, then relaunch Photoshop and let us know if it helps?

 

Regards,
Sahil

I have the problem with any the tools, which have a round cursor that can be made larger or smaller using the square brackets. eg; Quick Select Tool, Spot Healing Brush, Clone Stamp Tool, Dodge Tool and all of the tools associated with them plus any other tool which uses a round cursor.

The cursor is there but is virtually impossible to see on certain colors.

I'm using windows 10   Thanks,  RB

I have the same problem on an iMac Pro using Big Sur 11.1. I'm spotting scans of black and white negatives using the healing tool. The Cursor is sometimes white then shifting to grey that blends into the image. I've had weeks of eye strain because of it. I've tried many different settings but the only thing that works but still unstatisfactorily is capslock which turns the cursor into a perpetural white crosshair. If I could change the color of the precise cursor it would be a significant help.
