PS CC 21.2.0 text bug

MacPro 2010, OSX 10.14.6.

When editing a text layer, sometimes the 'old' version stays visible, although it's not in the layers panel. Might be triggered by cropping, not sure. I first saw it after straightening an image using the crop tool, then trying to level the text again.

Three video's of the issue.
1) Issue
2) at first everything is okay, then I use the crop tool and the issue comes up.
3) if you try to select the 'ghost' text, it disappears.

Oh, joy.

It seems to affect not just text, but pixel layers as well.

Makes PS unusable. By the way, this happens both with 'Use graphics processor' switched on and off in prefs > performance.

Off to try a reboot and/ or revert to PS CC 2019.

Edit: still happening after a reboot.

Oh, THIS IS FUN.

If I use the 'creative cloud' app to roll back to PS (21.1.3) ALL MY SETTINGS AND PREFS ARE GONE.

WHAT THE HELL.

I had to manually fix all settings from a Time Machine backup. 

NOT a satisfied customer right now.

Sorry. I have a bug logged for this with the Creative Cloud Desktop app team.

Your original issue is caused by "Legacy Compositing" being enabled under Preferences > Performance...

Ah. Well, ISTR that thàt option was set in order to try to fix some other issue.

Thanks for the reply though. :)

For now, I'll stay at PS CC 20.1.3 and try to get some work done...
