I have problems with Photoshop paths:

1-alt key to add anchor points when drawing not working.

2-The paths are invisible, I use the workaround suggested.

3-Sometimes, when drawing a path, the zoom freeze. The photo is blocked and I have to exit photoshop and restart.

For many years I had no problems with this program, please do update only if correctly tested.

Please fix them, I use paths every day.

Thank you

This is a user Forum, so you are not really addressing Adobe here, even though some Adobe employees thankfully have been dropping by.

 

»1-alt key to add anchor points when drawing not working.«

When using the Pen Tool is the alt-key necessary? Doesn’t the Tool switch to Add Anchor Point Tool when hovering over a Path anyway? 

 

»3-Sometimes, when drawing a path, the zoom freeze.«

Does turning off »Use Graphics Processor« in the Performance Preferences (Photoshop > Preferences > Performance > Graphic Processor Settings) and restarting Photoshop have any bearing on the issue?
