Save options panel not displaying correctly on a mac - photoshop CS6

Hi

 

I am finding that when using photoshop cs6 on a mac and when saving files as png or web files - the options panel displays as black and you are unable to see any of the options.

how do you change this?

    And the version of the OS you are using is a secret why?

     

    Boilerplate-text:

    Does turning off »Use Graphics Processor« in the Performance Preferences and restarting Photoshop have any bearing on the issue?

    Are Photoshop and OS fully updated?

    As with all unexplainable Photoshop-problems you might try trashing the prefs (after making sure all customized presets like Actions, Patterns, Brushes etc. have been saved and making a note of the Preferences you’ve changed) by keeping command-alt-shift pressed on starting the program or starting from a new user-account.

    System Maintenance (repairing permissions, purging PRAM, running cron-scripts, cleaning caches, etc.) might also be beneficial, Onyx has been recommended for such tasks.

    Weeding out bad fonts never seems to be a bad idea, either. (Validate your fonts in Font Book and remove the bad ones.)

    If 3rd party plug-ins are installed try disabling them to verify if one of those may be responsible for the problem.

    Christoph touched on plug-ins, but I wanted to mention one more thing:  You haven't copied plug-ins from an older version of Photoshop have you?  Or pointed the Extra plug-ins folder setting at plug-ins from an older version of Photoshop?

    We saw a few other people with problems like that in Save For Web.

    Reinstalling Photoshop or deleting preferences didn't help.

    What did help was a clean install of the OS.

    Did you copy any plug-ins from previous versions of PS?  If so delete those.

    Please go into Help - System Info... in Photoshop, copy what's there, and paste it into a post here (remove the serial number info if you like).  This will provide a lot of system details, such as plug-in info, that people can use to help you further.

    Actually, there's a lot of important information across the entire thing (which is quite long, admittedly), but since it's now working for you there's no need.
