Okay, I figured it out. I think you're right clicking on the path to fill it. Use the main menu instead. There seems to be a bug regarding this.   Here is what I think you're doing with right clicking and using the context fill. This is what I'm getting:   Here is using the main menu:

Very odd. Have you tried resetting your preferences. It looks like you have a shape layer with a white fill that is blocking the the leaves, but it doesn't look that way with your layer panels

I am having an issue like this also.

Fill path using a pattern. It does not show anything, was working before, now nothing.

 

Is there a bug fix for this?

Hello!

 

I am having this issue as well. Where on the main menu do I fill a path with a pattern? What do you mean by Main Menu? Could you provide screen shots?

The main menu accessing the fill feature through the top menu bar's edit>fill, not by right clicking to bring up the contextual menu.

This worked for me - thanks a million!  It's still a bug in Feb 2021 on MacOS (PS version 22.2.0)  

Using the right-click menu to select Fill Path results in my pattern being chopped in half.  Instead, selecting Fill Path from the Edit menu, everything works as expected.
