Preview 'glitching' when changing fonts in text blocks
Had this problem in 17.2 but still occurring even now I've upgraded to 17.3.
Working on a Mac Mini macOS Monterey 12.5.1
If I make any changes within a text block (weight, style or actual font) the selected text will 'glitch' and does not refresh properly when I'm choosing a font or different weight of the same font, causing issues with visibility and layout. It only corrects itself when I click off the text block, either onto the dashboard or another section of the design. This isn't ideal when I'm making design decisions as it impairs layout and aesthetics.
This did not occur when I was working in 2021. Only since using 2022.
Below screengrabs show:
1. Text block with placeholder text (normal)
2. A font change (text selection glitching when font has been changed).
3. A font weight change (text selection glitching when font weight has been selected)

Problem is still occurring in 18.2.1 - text does not preview immediately if I am selecting a new font, new font weight or changing font size. Sometimes the entire block will disappear whilst it is changing format and it takes seconds to refresh. Considering I'm on a relatively new machine, the latest version (2023) seems really sluggish, too.
