The text box - boundaries of text box are not showing, plus some pink noise appears when clicking in the text box. The cursor is also dashed and not solid.

In point text - cursor is not seen anywhere, therefore I cannot see where i'm about to type.

Are you working on a CMYK doc? Do the boundaries show if you open an RGB file?

I mostly work for print, so it probably was a CMYK document.  I don't think it has happened again after the latest updates though.  Will post again with more details if it does :)

OK I will try it now.  Even though there were days when I didn't get these strange outlines, there are still times I do.  Like now, with a smart object.
