    CS6 grid problem


      when im  using photoshop cs6 I turn on the grid an set the width and height of the grid to be 1 pixel by 1 pixel. However, the grid shows up as what looks like 0.4 of a pixelGridError.png

          Might be helpful to describe what version you have, what OS you're running it on, and some other info about your system, including video card, disiplay driver version...


          I can't reproduce that.  It shows up a full pixel size for me (I'm running 13.0.1).




          Do you see the same thing if you turn off the grid (View - Show - (uncheck) Grid), and turn on the Pixel Grid?


          Seems to me there were some problems seen with the Eyedropper tool introduced in 13.0.2 and 13.1 where it wouldn't sample properly, seeming to find more than one value inside the same pixel.  I wonder if that could be related.  If it is, I'm sure Adobe knows about it; perhaps the fix is already in the works.

            The pixel grid works fine and if i turn the grid size up to 4 pixels with 4 subdivisions it works. and magically, when i changed it back to grid size 1 it began to work correctly. Maybe it was a subvision problem... we will never know

              Interesting.  I can't imagine how changing it to different values should have corrected it.


              You might want to consider upgrading Photoshop to the latest update (which differs depending on whether you have cloud subscription).
