I have taught Intro and Advanced Photoshop for over twenty years on the college level, and am a commercial product illustrator who has made his living utilizing this great application. With that said, I'm very aware of issues relating to new/upgraded versions. The immediate issue is interface related (I believe). I have many online tutorials on YouTube for my students to reinforce their training. The issue relates to the Active Layer not highlighting blue! And please, I have enough experience to have already eliminated being in Quick Mask Mode, or being accidentally selected on anything except the rgb composite channel. So...what is the fix, or is this gray layer highlight color permanent? Is it OS related? MacBook Pro running 10.9.5 using CC 2015.5. 8 Gigs Memory. Having the (visual) and immediate capability to glance at the active layer, highlighted blue, is so helpful to both the tutorial maker, and the tutorial user! Advice please? Brian...

The blue highlight is returning in a forthcoming update.
