I used to use Ps normally, but since I've reinstalled my Windows recently so I had to reinstall Ps as well. However, when I used Gradient Overlay, it didn't work out correctly as it's supposed to do: no matter how I configured the option, it just filled a solid color instead of a gradient (as number 1 in picture). When I clicked reverse, it filled with the other solid color.
Number 2 I used Gradient Tools to make it easier to compare.
Anyone have a solution for this?
Could the Layer you applied it to have content off canvas?
Edit: To verify for example hit command-T and if the appearing transformation controls expand beyond the visible part on the canvas …
I tend to agree with C. Pfaffenbichler. You possibly have otehr content somewhere. A single pixel can cause this. otehr than that you might try turning off the Align with layer option and manually scale everything...
You could have accidently dragged over the object when the Layer Style window was open.
With the Layer Style window open, drag on the fill of the object itself (the pointer will change to the Move cursor) and see if the gradient boundary comes back into view.
