I have an irritating problem with
Adaptive Wide Angle filter. I have never had this problem before nor
other problems. Ps has been working OK until now.

The constraint
tool flickers my whole adaptive wide angle window back and forth to my
Ps working window behind, while I try to move the "change angle" pin /
dot. It does this to all my panorama raw files and to any other file. The problem isn't constant, sometimes it works, sometimes not. It has all started yesterday after I saved my work as a PSD file. I wanted to return to my smart object layer with adaptive wide angle to modify some of the lines again to fix my photo and suddenly my whole window started to flicker like in my video below.

I have tried to reset Ps preferences from Edit menu and reset Ps settings according to this video by J Kost

It did not work. Nothing works :(

have contacted Chat support a moment ago where I was told to move the
Adobe Photoshop CC 2015 folder found in AppData/Roaming/Adobe to
desktop. The problem was solved for the moment but after 15 mins and
taking a small break and returning back to work at my panorama file, the
problem returned.

Please see video of the problem I recorded, it shows what it's happening.


 Anyone else encountered this problem before? Any solutions? Please help !

I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

I also have the latest updates for Photoshop.
