Bug in V5.4 update?

Feb 26, 2020
Lightroom Version
Operating System
  1. Windows 10
I have LR Desktop installed on a desktop PC and a laptop, and both are showing the same problem following an update to version 5.4 today. In the Geometry tools, adjusting the Horizontal, Vertical and Rotate sliders no longer produces the grid overlaid on the image to help with alignment, making it difficult to tell whether a line in an image is vertical / horizontal.

The grid still appears in the Crop tool so the Rotate function can be carried out there, but Vertical and Horizontal adjustments are now more difficult to do accurately.

I'm seeing this on two PCs so I don't thing it's just my setup, but can anyone confirm whether they are seeing the same problem?
