Lewitje Level 1 Level 1

I just got the new Macbook Air 13", when I use the brush tool in Photoshop CS6 and it goes over 100px my screen starts to flicker wildly, its completly unusable.


Ive tried turning the graphics card prossesing on and off, basic, advanced etc... Nothing works.

Any ideas?


Thank you.

MacBook Air (13-inch Mid 2013), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.4)

I found the issue it was OSX, I just upgraded to Mavericks and the problem has gone!


Crazy, it was a very annoying bug, it made photoshop almost unusable!

Same here.  Macbook Air 6,2 (mid 2013 Haswell, 1.7ghz) Brushes in Photoshop CS6 make the screen flicker in the rectangular region across the screen from the cursor's current position to the bottom of the screen.  If I try to tough it out, after a few moments, graphical junk begins to appear.


Changing the resolution of the display to the next highest setting provides temporary relief.  Hopefully this isn't a hardware issue, but a drivers/software one.
