I'm running CC on iMac with Mavericks. I'm editting images building up adjustment layers and I get to 5 or 6 layers and the the image no longer appears - the edit window just shows a black rectangle, the same size as the image. The image is still in memory - if I export, save i can view the image. Adjustments still work - I've tested changing canvas size. I can run pluggins like Nik and the image appears in Nik but all black when it's returned to Photoshop. My only work around is to save image, quit and restart PS. This is seriously slowing down my work flow. This never happened when I was using CS6. I'm working on a high spec imac so shouldn't be a performace / resource issue. I'm only running PS and Lightroom.

Anyone else experienced this problem? Is there a fix, work around?
That's a video driver problem or conflict.
If you have Nik/Google plugins, disable them and check with Google for updates.
Otherwise, we'll have to see if we can reproduce the problem and help Apple isolate the bug in their drivers.
Google updated the plugins recently to correct this problem:
Version 1.109 (December 11/2013) is the latest:
Fixed black or white tile artifacts that might have occurred after returning to Photoshop from plug-ins
You can find out the version you have installed by launching Photoshop:
On Mac: Select Photoshop>About Plug-in>Analog Efex Pro… (or any other NIK Plug-in)
On Windows: Select Help>About Plug-in>Analog Efex Pro… (or any other NIK Plug-in)
