I am running Big Sur but haven't any problems with the preview. I know not very helpful for you but I have no idea what could cause your problem.

    X-Ray View is OK, but layer view is completely blank, does not even show the printer bed / axis overlay !




    I toggled "Force Layer View Compatibility Mode" and restarted and now my Preview is back to normal, strange !!

    Why do you use the Force Layer View Compatibility Mode? It should work on the Mac without that option.


    Or did you just the test to get it back to work?

    I was just trying any option related to display / view / layers and that appeared to work 🙂


    I disabled it again afterwards, which was what I meant by 'toggle'.
