Hello Community -

 

My adobe auto-installed overnight to the newest version. I was having a problem with the Graphics Processor when it first opened when I moved objects - the canvas would flicker. This problem was solved when I unchecked this in the preferences.

 

Still, however, I am dealing with a grey canvas when I click out of the application. I have a dual monitor and I reference images and resources on one side, so when I click on chrome, finder, etc. my photoshop on the other side greys out the entire canvas (as pictured below). It returns when I click back into the workspace. Not a critical issue, but definitely annoying. 

 

I have tried:

*Unchecking graphics processer

*Unchecking Save in Background

*Adding a background layer from Layer>New>Background From Layer

*I do have PLENTY of storage space

I'm having the same issue. Any insight on how to make it stop would be helpful.

This has been an issue for me since the beginning of 2020. Have yet to find a solution.

YES - I finally decided to try and research this issue for a fix. Has been driving me nuts for 6 months +

Running 3 screens on an iMac Pro/Mojave.

I just found this on another thread and it worked for me.

"I had the same problem, which I just fixed after finding this thread.

"Legacy Compositing" was already UNCHECKED.

I CHECKED "Use graphics Processor" and then CHECKED Advanced->Use native operating system GPU accelleration."
