The Rubberband. The rubber band is way good in Photoshop 2017. But in 2018 photoshop, when I'm working on path rubber band act like it's vibrating or shaking. It's just not stable in connecting to the pen.

So I wanted to let Adobe know to fix this problem with the Pen tool. I checked this with few different computer and acting same.

I'm using 

Intel Core i5 6600k
Graphics NVIDIA 750 TI 2GB (Latest Driver)
Ram 16 GB
SSD 120 (For OS)
OS Windows 10 Pro Build 1709(Latest)

Thanks in advance Adobe!

Weird. I have the same system and I'm not seeing this issue. Does it happen with all documents? Or is there something unique to your document set-up?

Nevermind. I figured it out. Doesn't happen with curvature tool. Only with the Pen Tool

Do you mean the "Magnetic Lasso Tool"?

OP concerns the Rubber Band option of a Pen Tool, if I’m not mistaken. I experience the same flickering on Win10, GTX 660, latest driver:

Same here too as of the 19.1 update. The rubber band portion is constantly flickering, pulsating.

Thanks everyone. I've asked our engineers to look into this issue.

I hate the rubber band on the Pen tool and always turn it off. I turned it on, running a Mac and El Capitan, and there is a bit of a flicker.  I had to slow down for it, but it's definitely there. Glad I don't turn the rubber band mode on.<G> With the Curvature tool, I'm not able to find a flicker that's as disturbing even if going slow, but it does flicker a little bit. I don't know if that's because it's trying to figure out with the next anchor what the curve should be, though. It has to jump around a bit.

Hi Jeffrey,

Is the problem fixed in the Photoshop CC 19.1.1 update? I'm still using CC 2017. I can't move without the problem gets fixed. 

Thank you!

It is not. It's still on engineering's plate to address.

Hi Jeffrey. I'm not sure why this isn't getting solved as there is already a new version of Photoshop. Do you have an idea about fixing this?
Thank you!

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Rubber Band blinking on Mac Book Pro in CC 2018 but not CC 2017.

In this thread https://forums.adobe.com/thread/2430158  choi tj notes a problem using the Rubber Band setting in the Path Tool. It flickers as it is moved in his Photoshop CC 2018 Mac.
He includes a video to demonstrate the problem.

I checked both my Mid 2012 Macbook Pros and noticed this problem in CC 2018, but not in CC 2017.

This seems like a bug. Perhaps other users can see if that's the case and I hope the Product Managers can have a look at this.

It's really annoying. I'm the one who reported this since the Photoshop CC 2018 were released but it's now 2019.0.4 and still no fixes. Is this the reason we are not a big company thus just paying $10/m and our report to the bug is careless? I'm not sure!
