I'm trying to draw clipping paths using the pen tool and it's hard to see the lines against some backgrounds. Is there a way to make the path lines more visible?

Set the following preference such that the path appearance matches previous versions of Photoshop:

Preferences>Performance...
Click on [Advanced Settings...]
Uncheck "Anti-Alias Guides and Paths"

Restart Photoshop.
