My marquee selection tool was recently changed to a solid black line when making the selection before switching to the "dancing" dotted line once the selection is made (to be transparent, this change could've been made by me on accident when tinkering in preferences). The problem is that the solid black selection line is often hard to see on images I'm working on, and I was wondering if I could change it to a different color somehow like how you can in preferences with guides, slices, etc. I looked through preferences but I couldn't find it, perhaps I missed it in there. I'm using Photoshop 23.4.1 on a Macbook.

Does turning off »Use Graphics Processor« in the Performance Preferences (Photoshop > Preferences > Performance > Graphic Processor Settings) and restarting Photoshop have any bearing on the issue? 

Does turning on »Deactivate Native Canvas« (Photoshop > Preferences > Technology Previews) and restarting Photoshop have any bearing on the issue? 

 

What have you done for all-purpose trouble-shooting so far? 

Restoring Preferences after making sure all customized presets like Actions, Patterns, Brushes etc. have been saved might be a good starting point:
