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

I recently updated to version 21.2.0, on Mac OS 10.13.6. Thisis the first time I am running an often used action that creates a text layer,at 30% opacity, but that text layer is not displaying properly- text visuallyis closer to 100%, but if I lower it to 0%, it is still visible. When I finish therest of the action, flattening the image, text is correctly set to 0%, and notvisible. So basically now I can no longer visually accurately judge opacity oftext layer in Photoshop.

This happens to the opacity of all layers. Program is useless.
Rolled back to an earlier version and that made my actions dissappear :(

If you go to Preferences > Performance... and uncheck "Legacy Compositing" does it work correct?

Yes, I unchecked it and restarted Photoshop, and that seems to have done the trick for now. Thanks Jeffrey.
