in Blender 2.8, the UV Editor in the UV Editing workspace looks normal. However, in the Shading workspace, if I select this editor into one of the areas it looks similar the Image Editor and the overlays are missing:

If I switch back the Layout workspace and select edit mode, then the UV Editor in the UV Editing workspace appears normal. Why does this happen?
