Should be fixed in the 2014.2.2 update. Select Help>Updates... to install.

Got the same issue - maybe had an auto update and it screwed something up, mine worked fine 2 weeks ago!

When I run Contact Sheet II from either Bridge or CC 2014, no mater the size I set my typefaces, I get a slug of text about 1-2 pts tall. In running the same images and sheet in the former version of Photoshop CC, the typefaces work as expected and I can adjust the point size. The same typeface and size is chosen in each of the programs so I'm guessing this may be an issue with an updated feature within CC 2014. Is this a known issue and is there a workaround short of using the older version of Photoshop CC?

My workaround for now is to use Bridge CS 6 and Photoshop CS 6. Luckily, I have lots of RAM and hard drive space, but it gets me by until the issue is resolved in CC 2014.

It's a little awkward and inconvenient, but works better than trying to edit a sheet of captions, one-by-one to fix the dinky typefaces.

I had the same problem and the update fixed it. But it is changing all the slashes in a file name to colons. It did not do this in previous versions. We are dealing with product SKU numbers so I need slashes to be slashes.

Even if I rename it in bridge, it will rename it in the contact sheet. HELP

I would try this work-around.

Run Contact Sheet II. Make sure "flatten image" isn't checked.

Once the sheet is rendered, run "Find and Replace Text" from under the Edit menu. Search for the colon and replace with the slash. Make sure it does this on all the layers. I've used this to change boiler-plate overlays. However, I'm not sure how it will work with a slash and that may be a work-around to the problem.

My guess is that it is outthinking you and thinking that the slash is part of a path rather than a file name.
