Red Brush Preview Vanished

I use the Control+Option (Alt) combo to control the size and hardness of my brush. Out of nowhere, I no longer get the red preview when adjusting the hardness or opacity. I've done a Reset Preferences On Quit, Reset All Tools, confirmed my Use Graphics Processor was checked, and confirmed my Brush Preview Color is selected to Red. I've Googled and Googled and have not found a solution. The only thing I haven't done is Uninstall-Reinstall Photoshop in fear of losing all my Actions I've created. 

 

Anyone got something for me on this?

I've been using PS all day ignoring the missing preview but with other issues as well. While in the middle of zooming in and out as well panning around the image, it just freezes. Not Photoshop. Just the ability to use any tools. I can still save the image and close Photoshop and reopen it and all is good. I also experienced Photoshop just crashing on me without saving any of the work.

 

This must be due to the update. I never experience weirdness of this nature with my machine.

Also, I noticed that at 0% hardness, the (soft round) brush outline appears different.

I have exactly the same problem and it is really awkward to understand the shape of the brush. 😕

I'm having this problem too. It's 100% an issue with the latest version, v22.0.1. I just uninstalled it, and installed v21.2.4 and its working again. To do this, simply open Creative Cloud, in your apps find Photoshop, click the "..." for "more actions", click "Other versions" and select an older version to install. Worked right away for me. Of course you'll lose the ability to use the new features like sky replacement, but if you're not using those features yet then you won't miss them.
