Photoshop CC 2019: Brush tool is following grid but all my 'snap to' are turned off?

I have a custom brush I have been using for years in photoshop but on CC2019 it is following/ snapping to the grid. 'Snap to grid' and all other 'snap to's' are turned off. Im not sure if this pattern will print this way but I can't zoom in or out without it appearing. It doesn't appear in CC2018.

Hi Conor,
Are you are on Mac or Win?  Does it happen with other brushes or just this specific custom one?  Does it happen with a specific document or all documents (differing dimensions/resolutions/color space)?
Thanks,
Chad

Hi Chad, thanks for getting in contact! I am using a Wacom display through a Mac. I get the same thing with all brushes. Changing the dimension, resolutions and colour space does nothing!

I just saved this pen sample and opened it in CC2018 and it looks perfect, I can zoom in and out without seeing this grid effect? It is only evident in CC2019!

Interesting problem. Chad, please contact me when you have the brush.

So it turns out it's not a brush thing. I am also seeing the grid effect on type. I don't think it will print but it just means that I can't zoom in or out of my work without seeing it?  It is showing in CC2019 and not CC2018? Could my graphics card not be good enough for CC2019?

Try this: go to Preferences > Performance... and check "Legacy Compositing" and restart Photoshop. Does the problem go away?

Conor, you on Mac or Win?  Sounds like Win.  It could be a graphics card issue. What do you have and are the drivers up-to-date?

You might be right Chad! I badly need to upgrade my Mac. Could it be the case that my graphics card is struggling with CC2019 but not CC2018? Thank you so much for helping !
