BUG in Pro 2.9 when georeferencing imagery

I've noticed that when you've georeferenced an image and saved it; when you Close Georeference in the menu, the raster disappears from the map frame. If you re-open the Georeference menu from the ribbon, it reappears. Have tried both with PNG and TIFF. 

The only way to make it reappear is to remove from TOC and readd, but at least it's still georeferenced.

Anyone else getting this too, before I report a BUG?

Did you "Save" or "Save As" ?

Some notes about the Close being a modal tab may explain the behaviour if this is what you are experiencing (bottom of the link)

@DanPatterson this is when clicking Save. 

I don't think it's related to the Close tool being modal, as this is new behavior at 2.9. Worked fine at 2.8.1-3

This issue just happened to me today in ArcGIS Pro 2.9, and several previous versions. After saving georeference the image will disappear. Sometimes clicking it on and off in the TOC brings it back. I now solve the issue by saving the project and reopening it. Most times, the layer becomes visible when activated again.

I have this problem too, when I georeference an image symbolized with Unique Values (in my case, two-color black-and-white scanned TIFF plans that I symbolize with a color for the foreground and transparent for the white background). I found this thread with an answer: https://community.esri.com/t5/arcgis-pro-questions/arcgis-pro-raster-images-disappear-or-move-during...

Here's what worked for me: After you click Save and then Close Georeference on the Georeference ribbon, if your image disappears, change its Symbology to Stretch (you may also need to change the Stretch Type to None according to that other thread). The georeferenced image should reappear. Then you can change the Symbology back to the way you had it before and it should continue to draw properly.

It's definitely a bug.
