Photoshop CC 2020 v21.1.0 - Recessed layer thumbnails

Since updating to 21.1.0, I've noticed something weird - when opening an image, the thumbnail for the Background layer is ok, but as soon as I create an empty layer, or duplicate the layer, or just turn the Background layer into a regular layer, then the layer thumbnails appear "contracted".

This image shows how the Layers palette (and more specifically, the layer thumbnails) looks like when opening a new document, and how it looks like just after clicking the "new layer" button:



Anyone else experiencing the same? I'm using Windows 10, by the way.

A new version is out (21.1.3), and the same issue is still there...

Yes, like Hamed says, nothing has changed with this update as far as this bug is concerned.
After installing the 21.2 update, I didn't check the new "Select Subject" algorithm, neither the new rotate pattern feature, or anything like that... I went straight to check if the normal layer thumbnails were finally back and... what a disappointement, they are still the same. So, we're in for at least another 3 months (best case scenario...) putting up with this annoying problem.

21.2.2 is out... and this issue is still there. It's getting incredibly annoying. Sometimes I use PS CC 2019 instead of CC 2020 because it's the only way I can clearly see my layer thumbnails and work normally - being able to see these thumbnails is more important to me than the fancy new features that I don't use (well, I do use them sometimes, but not near that often as looking at the layer thumbnails, which is a very basic feature now broken for many of us).
Anyway...

Does anyone know if this bug still persists in Photoshop 21.2.4?

 

I use Photoshop 21.0.3 this is the last version before this bug appeared. I am afraid to update because I am tired to reinstall Photoshop :(

To tell you the truth, I can live with that, but it's annoying because I can't have a good look at what exactly is in my layer, cause the preview is so small

and there are additional errors in the Win10 layers panel... gaps at the top of thumbnails and the selected layer highlight is offset...

@earth_oliver wow, Adobe really has a lot of design flaws to fix here. Hope it gets to them!

I just tested latest version :2020_v21.2.4.323 , same issue . 

all adobe products have big bugs except substance painter because it's free from adobe engineer's touch . 

they should record app's bugs and don't focus on new feature except the app works correctly with minimum bugs . 

PS version 2020 destroyed the app . I noticed zoom behavior changed in this version , if you use ctrl+space+click and drag for zooming it will kinda lag if move tool enabled, it won't zoom normally it kinda try to snap to smart guild lines and not zoom in and out smoothly . 

if there was a Competitor like blender for photoshop , no one uses this old rusty app.

Finally... normal thumbnails again... It's been like 7 months, but it has felt much longer for me. Working with older versions was not an option for me. so I've had to work all this time with 100% crappy thumbnails.

Thanks Adobe for fixing this - still, I must add that, in my opinion, it should have been fixed much sooner. I know there are a lot of issues to be fixed, but this one has been a serious impediment for working properly with the software.

Now let's see what new annoying bugs future updates will bring us! 😅😄
