Continually having to reset photoshop 2017 because of failures with the select and mask function.  Love it when it works, but on my brand new computer (which sure makes me think it's not a problem on my end) nearly every day I have to go back and reset my preferences because the marching ants quit showing up and the selection doesn't show up in the 'new layer with a mask' option.

Hi KTXN, What OS/version are you running Photoshop on?

It sounds like a Graphics Card issue. It may help if we could see your Photoshop System Info. Launch Photoshop, and select Help > System Info... and copy/paste the text in a reply.

Do you mean the matching ants gone after you click OK with output to new layer with mask? In that case, the selection already output as new layer with mask, not selection any more. If you want the selection come back, right click on the mask and select "Add Mask To Selection".
