As indicated in the title, the "pull string mode" option of the brush tool doesn't work in my very last french version of photoshop cc. The cercle appears but not the string and the brush behaves as if this mode was not selected. I have a powerful computer; 64 bits with 14927 Mo of available RAM. Can you help? Thanks in advance.

Hi Nathalie, 
In a recent update, we defaulted the pref OFF to show the "leash" (string).  If you go to Preferences > Cursors > and enable Show Brush Leash While Smoothing, you should be able to see the string again.  Let me know if that works for you.

Why does it no longer show the circle and only shows a very small portion of the string?
