P: Typing font name into font search is losing first letter (CC 2014)

When typing a font name into the font dropdown to quickly change fonts in Photoshop (CC 2014), the first letter is automatically highlighted, causing it to get erased when attempting to type a whole font name. Hard to explain, harder to title, excruciating to try to search for (especially since this site seems to be having some problems today). If there's another topic for this, please do point me there.

I've attached a couple screenshots that probably explain this better than that paragraph, and may help any Adobe personnel recreate the problem.

Step 1: Click on the font list, then start typing. First letter gets highlighted after being typed.


Step 2: Continuing to type a font name causes the highlighted first letter to be replaced, erasing it.


This only seems to be an issue in Photoshop - Illustrator and InDesign have not presented this problem yet from my experience.

This should be fixed in the Photoshop CC (2015) update.

Would it be possible to create a video screen grab or what you're seeing? We're not able to reproduce off hand.

The same thing happens here; when for example I want to use the font "Open Sans", it automatically searches for "Pen Sans", the O I typed get selected and disappears when I type the rest of the font name.

I've created a video screen grab to demonstrate: Youtube-link

I'm running the latest 64bit Photoshop CC 2014 on Windows 8.1

I can get a video, but this is a good one. It's really simple to recreate - just start typing and it'll happen.

Also having this bug! So frustrating! Please fix this Adobe, you're our only hope.

And while you're at it, PLEASE, give us the option to change the default save folder for save for web. I'd like my Save for Web to save in the original folder of the PSD. Right now it saves in whatever folder you saved in last. Very annoying and time consuming to navigate my folder tree for a quick save.

The issue is back. Now within the text boxes when you're editing text. The first letter get's dropped and disappears regardless of where in the box you're editing.
