I updated to 19.0.1 this morning, and everything is lovely with the exception of the Character palette. I'm suddenly unable to see increases or decreases made to any inputs in the Character palette via the up- and down-arrow keys in real time (only when I tab out of a field or hit Enter to commit the change does the actual type onscreen update). I'm able to make updates with arrow keys in other palettes (e.g. Paragraph). I should mention that I'm on a Macbook Pro (OS 10.13.1).

Howdy Jesse and everyone,

Yes, in order to get the fix out for leading with transformed type as soon as possible, we had to trade-off live updates to bumping (arrow keys) and scrubbing (mousing the control).  We are working on fixes to return the earlier behavior and they should ship with the next release to go out.  Our concern was including these fixes in a dot-release as they were untested and we wanted to get our customers the leading fix ASAP without breaking anything else.

I hope that makes sense.

Sorry for the annoyance,
David

There was previously an issue with the scroll and typing into the leading box for Character options. Looks like that was updated and the scroll works, but it is no longer real-time as you scroll for ANY of the options now. You have to scroll and apply it before seeing the outcome. Please update this asap!!! My workflow is being extremely hindered by this.

Oh, and a work-around for now is that you do get the previews if you're in a modal state (the text is uncommitted).

Hope that helps,
David

Can you explain this? Not sure what you mean by modal state. I am seeing no preview whether text is highlighted which is how I normally use it) or if just the layer is selected.

Hi David, thank you for your reply. You've said that there is a work around regarding the preview. but having part of the text or all of it selected means it's  in modal state. This is the actual worflow for everybody and this is exactely what doesn't work anymore. Not sure to understand the work around here.

Since the last PS update, when adjusting the leading of text, there is no live preview of the adjustments.
So you have to enter each time you want to see the adjustment you made.

This is a terrible "trade-off" and causing more of a disruption to my productivity than the leading issue. The work around for leading was to type values into the properties fields and tab to accept the value. So to solve that, you made it so essentially we have to manually set values and tab for all character properties instead of just leading? How does that make sense?

I'm having the same issue today (17/11/2017) - really hope this can be updated quickly, as it's becoming quite frustrating and time-consuming

Will we be alerted to this patch being fixed?

Currently trying to uninstall and role back to the previous version

Thanks,

Same here. Wow, that is a really really annoying one. I use Windows 10. So not only Mac users have this issue.

If it possible, please send us the file we need to overwrite as a workaround until you publish the new update?

I'd suggest going back to Photoshop CC 2017 until this gets fixed completely, at least if you use text in Photoshop on a regular basis.

I had to uninstall Photoshop using the Creative Cloud panel... then I had to also uninstall it from my windows computer itself as well - then back in the Creative Cloud panel, I think if you either right click to install, or click the arrow to expand the options, it gives you the option to “view other versions” and that’s where I could choose to go back and install the 2017 version (18.??)

I use text quite a lot in photoshop for work and even though it seems such a small bug, it quickly became highly annoying not having the “live preview” of your changes - I have been a graphic designer for quite a few years now but I’m not THAT good to know exactly which point size I would need first time

HI Denny, I also use Windows 10. I've not installed the new PS yet, still using 2017. I've been on the road for 5 weeks and have been following all the bug reporting, so arriving back home have not decided to install the new version on my desktop. What I want to know as you're a Windows user as well, do you have other issues with the new version?

Hi Rosa, here we meet again 😉
Currently I have no other bugs / issues found on version 19.0.1, only this text sizing issue.
So I think, you can unscrupulousy install the version 19.0(.0).
With the "Creative Cloud" app you can manually choose and a another version to install. But carefully: I just found out, that installing a previous version will delete all the settings.

Amazing how losing such a small feature can be completely debilitating...   We all use that up/down 'nudge' capability - while focusing intently on the space that needs filling 🙂

Same here. Of course all my settings defaulted when I reverted to older version. This sucks so much right now. Why the settings aren't saved in cloud ??? All star marked fonts, everything. Really time consuming and frustrating! Why Adobe why?

Well, I always keep a local save of my Adobe Settings folder. This way I can overwrite everything when a new version comes out or when I want to revert to a previous version due to bugs, like this one.

But yeah, not being saved to the cloud is non-sense.
