Normaly in photoshop, when hit Comand+T the handles appear to do any transformations, however now in CC 2019 handles not appearing at all, only the reference point is visible, I saw preferences and dont see any to activate it.

Only when I activate View/Show layer edges  a blue line appears.. How can I fix this?

I found if I go into Preferences, Performance, and click on "Advanced Settings" under the "Use Graphics Processor setting, then changed the drawing mode from Advanced to Basic, then the Transform controls would show. If I have it set to Normal or Advanced, it wouldn't show. Not sure if it's a good thing to go with Basic as opposed to Advanced or not.

Hi

Try this to see if it helps, go to Edit > Preferences > Performance and enable Legacy Compositing and restart Photoshop

You know what just worked for me is deselecting the Use Graphics Processor. Under Performance in Preferences. Unsure of the cons to doing this but at least I can see transformation controls and highlight text. Hope that helps!

Same issue for me as well. Also tried the legacy compositing option and nada. Are you able to highlight text at all?

Hi Mario,

As transform controls are not appearing, could you please try deselecting "Use Graphics Processor" located in Photoshop's Preferences > Performance, then relaunch Photoshop and let us know if it helps?

Regards,
Sahil

I would recommend you to check for updates for the Graphics processor on manufacturer's website.

You can check the list of features which use Graphics processor acceleration: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/photoshop-cc-gpu-card-faq.html

Upon research on the manufacturers website, this is not possible. What do you suggest we do now?

This did not help me. Strangely, the problem occurred after I updated Premiere Pro CC 2019.

I will try updating Photoshop CC 2019 to see if Adobe has fixed this bug.

Cmd+T shows my transformation handles, but I have to "apply" to move on to something else.

Actually just tried Preferences, General, "Reset Preferences on Quit". After quitting Photoshop and relaunching, Transform controls appear as they should without having to mess around with the Graphics Processor settings! Of course you'll need to go through all your preferences settings and put them back the way you like them. Suggest making screen shots of all the different preference settings before doing so to make it easier to set it back up the way you want.
