Just upgraded to Photoshop CC 2018, used to be able to select a layer and Free Transform with handles with live redraw for placement. Now when I select a corner (to resize or rotate), it resizes the visible selection block/indicator and gives me new handles and I can't see what I'm doing, it's just a guess. This problem is happening on text and object layers. (Not using smart objects for this project).
I've tried looking through preferences and options to no avail. It's almost like area select is turned on but I deselected that long ago.
Thanks for any help.

Could you please post a screenshot taken at View > 100% and with the pertinent Panels (Layers, Channels, Options Bar, …) visible?

When you have applied a transformation destructively and »Show Transform Controls« is checked that would seem to be what is to be expected.
I've discovered it has to be an option or preference that I haven't deselected.
I recently updated at work and am not having the same problem.
It has to be auto-select has reactivated. I'm going to check it tonight. Thanks.
