Selected text not indicated in PS 2021

Since I upgraded to 2021, the text handling has changed. Now, when I select part of the text to, say, change the font size, I don't see the selection. I also don't see the bounding box of the text when the text layer is selected. Adobe says it has a new  compositing engine and as of version 22, the Legacy Compositing checkbox is no longer available . This is what I would expect to see,  it's more difficult to work without it.

Can anyone help?
