Hi folks -

So I'm still trying to get used to some of the changes in Pshop CC 2019, but there's one thing I can't get the hang of and would love to find a fix for, if you can help it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

When I use the lasso tool in Photoshop CC 2019 to make a selection, as I am moving the lasso around my screen to make the selection, there is no indication as to the selection edge I just made. Only after I release the mouse button does the selection appear with marching ants.  As you can imagine, this makes the process of accurately selecting a space with the tool nearly impossible. Any idea on how I can see what I'm selecting as I select it?

Hi

Try going to Edit > Preferences > Performance > Advanced Settings and changing the drawing mode to basic to see if that helps

Also try checking "Legacy Compositing" in the preferences under performance.

It's a simple fix that many missed.  On your top bar just unclick the "Show Transform Controls"

Hi

The OP's issue is not related to the transform controls

Hello,

I am also having the same or a very similar issue.  When trying to create any selection with the lasso tool I can not see the selection edge.  Only once the selection is made can I see the marching ants.  I have tried changing the advanced drawing mode settings as well as the Legacy Composting settings.  Additionally, this only became an issue recently, I used CC 2019 a few months ago and the lasso tool was normal.Screen Shot 2019-06-03 at 4.25.45 PM.png

I am also on an iMac.
