This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Photoshop 21.2: Moving layer leaves duplicate/shadow image

In the brand new Photoshop CC 21.2.0, if I attempt to make a change in a layer or add a layer, all of the layers duplicate themselves until I click the visibility icon of a lower label off and on which makes the duplicate disappear.

Howdy Michael,
Are you doing this in the Layers panel via mouse clicks?  What kind of mouse are you using?  Which OS are you running on?
Thanks,
David

Yes, Mouse is Logitech MX Master 3. The problem started right after I installed the new version

Have you tried with a regular mouse?  I'm not seeing what you're describing.
Under Preferences > Performance, is Legacy Compositing checked or unchecked for you?

Legacy Compositing was checked! I unchecked it and the problem went away! Thanks so much for an easy solution!

MarHabtayn ya Jeera,
Wait, what?  There should be no difference with how Arabic fonts should be handled in any of the recent releases.  What sort of problem are you having?  On which OS version?  Which specific fonts?
Please be aware, due to a number of factors, many older Arabic fonts are problematic because of how they were made.  Some of these were created to fill a need before there were any standards in place.  Further, the current standards aren't quite as well-defined for complex scripts, so there are multiple "right answers" about how things "should" work.  As a result, some Arabic fonts aren't compatible with some applications -- Photoshop can't handle Apple's AAT fonts in Arabic, for instance.
But please, let me know what you're encountering so we can capture the information and look for a solution.
Shukran,David
p.s. -- if you've got pain-points with regard to Arabic (or any other) typography, please let me know!

I am having a similar problem with text since the update a day or two ago:
-Any changes I make to existing text boxes (resizing, cutting and pasting, etc) leaves a ghost image of the old version mixed in with the new. 
-Extreme zooming in or out causes the ghost to disappear, but it reappears once I'm back to the original zoom. 
-Hiding the layer hides the new content, but the ghost remains (un-clickable, not really there)
-Saving and reopening permanently removes the ghost
-Legacy Compositing is NOT checked
-I have the problem in all my existing projects, but the problem does not occur in new documents
-If I copy-paste the old glitching text box into a new document, the ghost-glitch does not occur
-If I create a new text box in an old document, the ghost-glitch does not occur
-I've halfheartedly dabbled with GPU on/off, cache size, made no difference
-Screenshot here of Lorem Ipsum remaining beneath pasted text: https://shared-assets.adobe.com/link/dfefe994-bdc5-4a31-4bf7-e2bcca0eeec0
