Cannot see selected in object or edit mode after deleting groups of key frames

Using 2.81.
I was playing around with a bunch of point animation, then decided I didn’t like a lot of it and deleted small groups of keyframes. Blender started getting the whitewash screen over and over. I restarted the program and I could no longer see selected Items, though I could select them. In edit mode, same thing… I could not see selected vertices/edges/faces, but I could blindly select things.
The only fix was to copy and past everything into a new Blender file, but that is a very time consuming fix as I have to now transfer all the different textures and materials.
This is a huge bug that needs to be fixed, and from what I can tell by looking for solutions, there seems to be variations of this bug, or similar bugs.
