Text becomes thick when highlighted

When I highlight text to change the font, the text becomes ultra thick. Like a stroke has been applied. The thickness remains until I deselect the text layer and it goes back to its original thickness. It makes it quite annoying to do any font changes as I can't see an immediate result. I've attached photos of text highlighted and regular. Any suggestions?

Hi there,

That shouldn't be happening. Which version of Photoshop are you working on? Could you please try deselecting "Use Graphics Processor" located in Photoshop's Preferences > Performance, then relaunch Photoshop and let us know if it helps?https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/troubleshoot-gpu-graphics-card.html

Thanks for your reply, Sahil.

I'm working on Photoshop 2020. We have the Creative Cloud, and Photoshop is up to date. Deselecting the graphic processes didn't change the issue.

I just updated to Photoshop 2021, and it still has the issue.

 

Thanks - any help would be appreciated!
