Help! Somehow my android text selection adjustment is no longer available since yesterday.

The pop-up text selection toolbar has the three dots button which traditionally can be used to drag the toolbar over the screen. Now, however, the whole screen becomes active and acts as a handle for this dragging action.

Note, this is affecting only multi-line text input fields.

Now I can use the toolbar functions as usual - Cut, Copy, Translate, etc - only the function applies to the initially selected word, that is I cannot e.g. select two words because the selection blue handles are inaccessible behind the invisible extension of the three-dots handle.

What could be the cause for this?

It is Samsung with recent Android 10 January update, if that matters. The problem is manifested with any keyboard used: Samsung or Gboard.
