I recently upgraded to a new computer (still running XP) and was able to reinstall CS3 without any issues. I downloaded all the updates for PS, Bridge, and ACR, again without any issues. Then, I noticed that when I hold down the Alt key and move the radius and/or detail sliders in the sharpening pane, the image whites out (like it should) but no detail is visible, regardless of how I adjust either of the sliders. This was working fine in my old machine. I was running ACR 4.3.1, and have now updated to 4.4, but the problem persists.
Any ideas what could have caused this and what needs to be done to restore that functionality? Everything else is working as expected.
I know that. I was using them without any issues for a couple months before switching computers. The zoom is at 100%. The sharpening and masking sliders also only work at 100% and those are fine - it's just the radius & detail.
