Photoshop 20.0.2: Moving Frames not updating correctly

I am attempting to use the new Frames features in Photoshop but I am having serious problems.

Anytime I select a frame and move it with the move tool, it appears to stay static and isn't selectable.  Once I let go of the mouse, and then switch to another tool, the frame appears in the position I moved it to.

This essentially makes the frame tool useless, because if I can't see where I am moving it to until after it's moved it's impossible to know exactly where I am positioning it.

Sounds like a driver issue. 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 have a tablet.  Would that cause an issue?

I don't have experience with tablets but I have seen numerous reports by people having issues with them from time to time. Try your mouse to see if the behavior is different with the tablet disconnected. That might shed some like on the issue. As always, you might see if there are newer drivers available for you tablet.

I'm using my mouse.  I don't even have the tablet connected for these tests.

Hum, don't know what to tell you. The fact that it's behaving the same way on two different computers is certainly suspicious. Have you tried your experiment on different files to see if the behavior is the same? Like I said earlier, the Frame Tool seems to be working as expected for me.

I've tried it on blank documents as well as existing documents.  I am going to see what happens if I disable my tablet drivers.
