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

With the latest Photoshop update- every time I add text to my project, it creates an image of the sample text that I can't get rid of or move. The New text just goes on top of it. This does the same thing for duplicating the text boxes too. It will duplicated it but leave whatever was originall there, and then it won't go away. Ultimately if I save it the original box goes away, but it begins again if you begin to alter anything. It's infuriating and I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling, as well as making sure I have all the recent updates. I can't do my projects literally.

I had this same problem. Go To Edit -> Preferences -> Performance and check off "Legacy Compositing"  If that is checked on. It fixed it for me.
