Photoshop CC 2019: Pixel Glitch

I'm having an issue where if I move things in my photoshop file they seem to get cut off by an imaginary line. It's almost as if the copy were in a clipping mask and it's cutting it off but it's not in a clipping mask. It's happening in multiple areas of my file, and it is not just a previewing issue it saves the file that way as well. It seems to be fine if I move it two pixels and back one which is a quick fix but when you have to fix it multiple times just to export a file it is not super convenient. Any help?

I have the same glitch on all versions of photoshop beginning from  2017. It appears when you have lots of layers and nested groups.

Nita, is this a problem with a specific Photoshop document?

there are some anomalies on Windows with the updated compositor.  Try Prefs ==> Performance ==> Options / Legacy Compositing ==> checked on.

This is also happening to me with the newer CC 2019 version, for example after applying a Hue/Saturation adjustment. Never happened before. I'll try reverting to the legacy compositing for now.

Hi Nita,
We so sorry for your frustrating experience.  We'll have the engineering team look into this.  In the meantime to help us identify the issue specifically, can you please share with us the PSD file with this issue (you can email it to me, sender@adobe.com), your Help -> System Info, and let us know if "Legacy Compositing" helped resolve your issue.  Thanks Nita!

Sincerely,
Andrew
