After latest update, the canvas area on PS, AI e ID flickers as soon as program is opened.

Flickering prevents use of menus, which also flicker.

OS is Windows 10, graphics board is NVidia GTX980 w/ latest driver.

Reverting to earlier versions of PS, AI e ID solve the problem.

Hello, I found the solution in another forum: you need to uncheck "Show 'Start' Workspace When No Documents Are Open" in Preferences > General.

It was somewhat difficult doing that, because the flickering also affected the menus. I had luck using the keyboard: press Alt-E to open the Edit menu and choose Preferences > General.

This also works for Illustrator and InDesign. For After Effects it's the same but the menu nomenclature is different.

Hope this helps other people.
