I just realized that I accidentally posted this in discussions previously. But this bug is so annoying that I have to move it here. I can't work like this:

 

When I zoom in and try to select a vector curve point with the white arrow (direct selection) tool by clicking on the point or by making a selection rect around the point, the point doesn't seem to be selected.

Only if I then zoom in or out just a bit, that point is being shown as selected.

I can draw several of those useless selection rects, as you can see in the attached screenshot. They just don't disappear unless I change the zoom factor.

 

I already reset my settings because of another bug and disabled "Use Graphics Processor" as well as "Animated Zoom" in the preferences.

 

I'm using Windows 11, the bug was already there in Photoshop 23.3.1. Version 21.x.x seemed to work as far as I remember, but I can't check it because it's not available anymore.

 

I really need the vector tools and now my workflow efficiency is completely destroyed because of this, since at least two months. Please fix this ASAP.

Try turning the GPU back on by disable this setting: Go to Preferences > Technology Previews... and check "Disable Native Canvas" - then restart Photoshop. Does the problem still occur?
