Hello,

I have an issue with Photoshop elements since last week and its very annoying to work arround.
When i insert a text field and starting typing, i dont see the text until i finishing typing, then click somewhere else and wait a bit.
This is also the case when for example i make a selection on a photo, then i dont see the selection bars until i click on the cursor in the tool bar

 

Since i use photoshop elements alot for videos this is very annoying for me 😞
(i also tested this on the trial 2021 version and i have the same issue

What i already tried
preferences => general => reset preferences on next launch
reinstalled the 2020 version
installed the 2021 version same issue

I also googled this and some say its with gpu acceleration, but as far as i know elements doens,t do this

Tried to make an image of the issue in paint.

Hi @LeDitn 

 

Another user has posted a similar issue with the Text tool. They posted a video demonstrating the problem in this post:

 

https://community.adobe.com/t5/photoshop-elements/having-a-very-strange-experience-with-ps-elements-...

 

Can you have a quick look at the video and confirm this appears to be the same issue you are having?

 

If so, we might be able to see if there are any commonalities between your computers and start to troubleshoot the problem.

 

Thanks 🙂
