So like usual, I made a text box to start typing but I don't know what happened because now there is the same word in various small fonts all over my work. I have no idea where it came from. If you look at the photo, there is the word "Jin" in white everywhere and I can't seem to remove it.

Have you tried turning off the visibility of the three text layers a the top of the layer stack?

 

It almost looks like a watermark, except it is in front of everything, so must be in one of the top three layers.

Try Michael's idea first. If it does not work, turn off the visibility for all the layers, then turn them on one at a time in case the text was rasterized and is now pixels on another layer.

I did try turning off the visibility of the three text layers, but some of the words were still there.

 

Thank you for the reply.

Hi Jane, I ended up resolving the problem by pressing the undo button until it somehow disappeared. But now that I think about it, your advice would have been an easier way to fix the problem. Thank you and I'll keep that in mind if this happens again!

Definitely looks like a watermark. Is there a function that automatically overlays whatever you input as a tiled watermark (like in stock images samples and drafts)?

 

The other option is, of course, that the device is haunted 🤭

I am having the same problem with Photoshop on my iPad Pro. Unfortunately, turning the visibilty on and off doesn't work. Moving the text layer above or below background layers doesnt help. Exiting out of the program and loading it agagin doen't help. Hitting the undo button doesn't help. Needing a viable solution here. Trying to find a workout for this floating/multiplying ghost text driving me mad.

Benjamin, thank you for the response. I'm trying to build this out for work so when this happens every couple of days, it's infuriating. Something's when I reposition the text layer, it hides it, but it still remains. Here's the photo. 510C9A56-B1F8-45B6-9D49-5F166851E315.jpeg

The "ghost" text is actually the last line of text I had on the document, on the same text layer. I 86'd that last line and the ghost text remained. I re-typed in. The ghost test remained. So ultimately, I just deleted the text, shifted that text layer down a few levels which covered up the ghost text and adjusted the sizes of the other layers to cover up the remaining floating text.

For future reference, I was able to make the artifacts go away by selecting the text tool and tapping on the canvas. That adjusted the problematic layer, somehow, and got rid of those artifacts. Not sure why they are there yet.

Okay, we'll, at least there's a way to fix it in the meantime. The real question is why is it happening. Lol.

Just wanted to follow up. We have figured out the issue and we are in the process of figuring out how to fix it. In the meantime, the workarounds are thus: Either open the text frame, which seems to make the fragments disappear, or use a paragraph text frame (tap-drag a text frame, rather than just tap with the text tool.) the problem appears to be specifically related to point text frames. Hope that helps. I'll let you know when a fix is in place.
