Pin icon is missing from Camera Raw adjustment brush in new Adobe CC 2018 update

Each adjustment brush edit in Camera Raw is usually shown with a pin icon.  Since updating to the new Adobe CC 2018, the pin icons are missing.  This makes it impossible to create more than one adjustment brush or edit others because you are not able to select or see them without the icon.

Which operating system version are you running?

If you disable "Use Graphics Processor" in Camera Raw preferences, do the pins appear?

Yes, they do appear.  I'm using  Mac El Capitan - 10.11.6.  What does this effect if I don't use the graphics processor in Camera Raw?

I have another Bridge/Camera Raw question concerning the latest Adobe update.  Let me know if you would prefer I submit this in another post.  It appears that the File>Info window has reverted to the less sophisticated window that you would normally see when adding information to the File>Info window in Photoshop.  I'm not able to make the info boxes larger as in the past and normally Bridge remembers the information that I have just added from previous photos.  Why is this Info box appearing instead of the one that I used to use all the time when adding information in Bridge?

Turning off "Use Graphics Processor" means your interactive editing performance in Camera Raw will be slower in some cases.

It's possible that updating to Mac OS 10.12 or later might resolve the issue with the pins. There was a known graphics card driver bug in 10.10 (maybe 10.11 but I don't recall for sure) that was fixed in a later Mac OS update.

On the Bridge issue, yes, please post it in a separate thread. Thanks!
