Hard to explain this... but this afternoon I was editing images in photoshop from Acrobat and the picture opened in a bright green box! The picutre is there, you can see it when you zoom in and out, but its like this very bright green and makes it impossible to work with.

I tried the cmd option PR reset but its still happening. Help! Any insights?

Deleted the Photoshop preferences file and all is ok.

Strange, never seen this one before.

Is that "zapping the P RAM"? I haven't thought about that in many years...
Take me to your ladder.
I'll see your leader later.

haven't needed that trick in a while, although I do do the fsck -yf almost weekly on some of the Macs around here.

I don't think they even works anymore on newer Macs. They removed the chime so you don't know when to press and release the keys. I tried to trick it on mine and guess when to press and release but I evidently I wasn't good enough at it if it would work.

Usually green, possibly red, rarely blue...

Sometimes changing zoom levels or quitting/restarting may be a temporary solution.

First, try Preferences > Technology Previews then tick the "Deactivate Native Canvas" option.

Otherwise try turning off features under Performance > Graphics Processor Settings > Advances Settings, or as a fallback unticking "Use Graphics Processor".

Quit and restart after changing settings.

If there is an update for your graphics card driver, then this may also be an option.

Good luck!

Never happened again. Only occurred over the course of a couple of days. Strange. (what else is new?)  :drunk3:

You all know I complain about Adobe's "features." But I take it all back! Every last word! Last week a client made me design a newsletter using Constant Contact. It is a new low for me and I will need some time to heal so please respect my privacy during this difficult time.

Any time you prove you can do or use something, you're just asking for more of the same. I learned that early in my career.
