Automatic grid disappears when zooming in

Recommended Posts

Automatic grid just disappears whenever I zoom close enough to see the pixels subdivision. It's not document specific but it just started happening randomly on every existing document and every new one I make in Designer. Automatic grid in Photo works just fine though for now. I've tried making a custom grid and what not but subdivisions are just broken now. Don't show no matter what I try.

Also, since it started happening for whatever reason it's really heavy on my MB Pro when I zoom in. Temperature skyrockets in seconds.

Anyone? I basically can't do icon design like this.

EDIT: Changing the display method from OpenGL to Metal in performance preferences seems to solved the issue but I'm not sure why it was an issue at all in 1.8.1 or if this is a permanent fix since the grid went haywire seemingly on random and just stayed broken like that while I was on OpenGL. I'm guessing it might happen on Metal again?

We have made fixes/improvements to this area (Grids divisions fail to show below 16px and grids fail to show below 4px using OpenGL) of the program in the latest release.

The fixes and how to update are described in these forum posts.

We would appreciate you checking that this issue has now been resolved for you.
