I'm running Photoshop CC 2015 on Mac OS X 10.11.
Since upgrading to Photoshop CC 2015 (
2015.1.2 20160113.r.355) when I create a new layer it's all white, when I select pixels and press the Delete key the pixels remain white - I'm unable to get transparent pixels. The layer is a "normal" layer, not a Background layer.
I note this happens even when File > New > Background Contents: is explicitly set to Transparent.
Under Preferences > Transparency I have the default settings of Medium Grid Size and Light Grid Colors.
How do I get transparent pixels back?
UPDATE: I'm having the same issue as described here: https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/photoshop-cc-2015-checkerboard-preview-for-transparency-in-thumbnails-and-artboards-are-gone
