I have the problem that my refine edge tool does not respond at all. I already have checked all kinds of official Adobe forums and although similar facts are mentioned, nowhere is a solution suggested. I always work with the latest version of PS, it used to work, but I recently identified the problem in version 21.x and now it is still there in version 22.0.

I add a screenshot. The result is that nothing(*) happens during "brushing". Thank you very much for your help!!!  (*) I see the "circle" spinning around when processing but the result remains unchanged.  It happens on both + and - movements: no result.

I am working with Photoshop 2021 version 22.0on a Mac (macOS Mojave 10.14.6)

Thank you!

Resetting my PhotoShop 'preferences' did the job but I still want to know why/what caused this issue.  If it is stored in some preference setting (apparently) it must be possible to modify it (without a general reset).  Any comments are welcome!

UPDATE: although in the screenshot the option "show original" was turned on, it is not any different when is it turned off in reality. I also noticed that the program DOES TRY to REFINE the edges but in stead of "keeping it", the program REVERSES back to situation as if I didn't use the refine edge "brush".
