Photoshop: Can't see selection edges (marching ants) after drawing marquee

When I make a selection in photoshop 2018 using the marquee tool the edges are not visible. I have to click in the marquee box in the toolbox and then they become visible. This is across a number of machines using Sierra on Macs.

I'm sorry, but what 'marquee box in the toolbox' are you talking about?

Marching ants not visible after a selection is made until the Rectangular Marquee Tool is clicked again in the toolbox and then they show up.

As this is "across a number of machines using Sierra on Macs" I would be surprised if all these machines have corrupted preferences. I'm still not sure what  the 'marquee box in the toolbox' is supposed to be, however.

Maybe. It seems like it would either be a gpu issue or whacked prefs. But there's not much you can do with GPU drivers. Sometime the GPU settings get gummed up and reset puts those back in a nice/default state.

As the OP hasn't come back on this, I get the feeling that it was user error and that she found that out by now.

I tried restoring preferences and it didn't do anything. No it wasn't user error as it can be replicated across a number of machines as previously stated.

User errors can be replicated too, obviously. You still haven't explained exactly what the problem is. Everybody seems to be guessing. What is this 'marquee box in the toolbox' you are talking about?

Howdy Virginia,

If you click the View entry in the Menu Bar, is there a check mark to the left of Extras?

Thanks,
David

This issue never manifested with 2017. It did however with a previous version, the original CC if I remember rightly until an update fixed it. I'll just keep all machines on 2017 and periodically check to see if the issue has been fixed in future updates.

Would it possible to do a screen caputure video to see the behavior/steps you’re doing?

It may help if we could see your Photoshop System Info. Launch Photoshop, and select Help > System Info... and copy/paste the text in a reply.

I'll have to reinstall photoshop 2018 on a machine again. I suppose I can do that.

Use Graphics Processor is disabled. (Preferences > Performance.... "Use Graphics Processor") If you enabled that and restart Photoshop, does it work correctly?

Graphics Processor disabled seems to have done it.

I have the same Problem while drawing a mask with the lasso the marching ants don"t appear. Only with your finished with the mask is it visible.

For what it's worth, resetting the photoshop preferences worked for me.
I was seeing strange purple guides as I dragged the marquee tool, rather than the marching ants that I'm used to. The guides seemed to be pointing me to perfect center.

I used this method: 1.) Quit photoshop.  Restart photoshop from the dock in mac holding down command-option-shift. It asked if I'd like to restore preferences to default.

I am on Mac OS 10.14 and I have had the same viewing issues, as in when click and dragging a selection area, the "marching ants" does not appear until I have stopped my selection. And also, when using transform tool, the transform handle box lingers after the action has been performed, it only disappears when I zoom in or out of my view. Selecting another tool did not clear the artifact. 

Resetting my preferences per Jenkins2541 did correct both issues.

Hi Gary,

What version of Photoshop are you working with?  On which Operating System?  Have you tried trashing your Photoshop preferences file on startup?  Have you gone to the View menu and made sure that Extra has a check to the left of it AND that under Show you also have a check to the left of Selection Edges?

Thanks,
David

Are you working on CMYK images? If you open or create an RGB image and then go back to your CMYK files, does the selection edges draw?

Same problem, can't see selection area 'marching ants' when making a selection, only after I've double-clicked to stop selecting. I've tried resetting my preferences and checked the View settings. Agree with Gary, this is fxxk up. Mac OSX 10.12, Photoshop 20.0.1. Kathleen

Same Issue no selection edges when using the lasso tool until I let go. :( Reset my preferences, clean restart still nothing.
MAC OS Mojave 10.14.3
Photoshop CC 2019
tried all suggestions above to no avail......however if I switch from CMYK mode to RGB mode they are there!
Work around: Make selections in RGB and then back to CMYK......clearly not the proper way to work on images!
This needs a fix!

What if you turn off "Use Graphics Processor" in Preferences>Performance? Top right of window. You'd have to restart photoshop. Just a guess, but this helped me when I was having trouble getting my selections to show the selected area.

Turning off "Use graphics processor" Takes away the pen tools options in the preferences. Is there a way to have the poly lasso tool show its path, and still have the pen options available?

Did you try leaving on Use Graphics Processor and opening an RGB file to have the extras show on a CMYK document?

I just checked, my "Use graphics processor" is back on again and I can still see the selection edges. Possibly you just need to toggle it off and restart photoshop and then turn it on again? I also turned off (in Preferences > Performance > advanced settings) "anti-alias guides and paths". When I turned it back on again after restarting photoshop, my selection edges were still working.

I "have" this same problem with 2019. Leaving Use Graphics Processor checked On and going to Advanced Settings... and changing the drawing mode to Normal from Advanced corrects the selection area preview-while-drawing problem in CMYK mode   -    for me.

If your having trouble in 2019, the issue is fixed in 2020.

Got this problem in the newest version 21.1.0 in Catalina 10.15.3 on a MacPro.  Absolutely frustrating. There is no way to activate selection edges. Working with Photoshop is just impossible.
