Mojave Photoshop CC19: selections & transform control tools not showing

I updated to MacOS Mojave last weekend, and now none of my selections are highlighted or outlined, and transform controls (the little boxes you can select to stretch or re-size objects) are no longer showing. I can guess where the control boxes are, and then resize objects, but it's hit and miss. Same for text selections; selected text is not highlighted but I can edit text by typing after guessing the selection.

For example, if I select a layer, select the move tool, make sure the "Show Transform Controls" is selected, there is no visual prompt in my edit window to show that any item is selected. Yet I can move the object (with no visual clues or guides for the selection), or I can select a corner by guessing where the small box selection would be, then scale or stretch the object. Again, other than the object changing shape, there are no guides or lines to show me bounding boxes, alignment to other objects etc.

I'm running Mac OS 10.14.1 and Photoshop CC 20.0.1. I've tried switching between Mojave light and dark modes, but this has no impact. I've also rebooted several times.

Help, this is a pretty fundamental problem; I'm running blind!

Thanks

Thanks eartho, but that's not the issue. Looks like this is a known problem: workaround is to open an RGB file first or turn off the GPU acceleration.
