Hi. I'm brand new to Ps and am trying to deep etch something for an assingment. The rubber band isn't showing for the pen tool, though the box is checked. And when I finish the path, I don't get the little circle icon for Close Path, but a Pick Up Path icon. 

 

Any thoughts please - I've posted a question to my lecturer yesterday but no response, and I can't progress. Thank you.

Sounds like you are using a Mac.  If so then this is a known issue, but I don't know when it will be fixed.

Thank you. I'm on a PC. I uninstalled the latest update, and installed the immediately-previous version, and the rubber band appears. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

Thank you. I'm less than a week in to using Photoshop so I'm not sure what that means in effect - in the meantime, I uninstalled the latest version of Photoshop and installed the immediately-prior version. Thanks for replying.
