"Select Other" not hiding faces

Ever since updating to Solidworks 2020 SP2.0 from 2019 whenever I use the Select Other feature it doesn't hide the top face.

 

The pop up window still appears, the mouse cursor changes to the same icon, I can select the faces below, and the faces/edges are outlined in red when I mouse over them. Before SW2020, I used this feature frequently, right clicking to hide multiple faces but now the first/top face remains opaque.

 

I've scoured the options for a setting that relates to this but I can't find it anywhere. It doesn't matter if I'm in a part or assembly. I have select through transparency selected as I always have. I have turned every option on and off in the selection menu under options. 

 

Has anyone else experienced this? Surely this must be some setting I'm overlooking.
