I've just upgraded to photoshop 2022 and am going nuts having to confirm ''commit the type layer edits before saving'' before saving the file whenever I've made changes to text. I don't need this extra time waster. If I didn't want the text changed I wouldn't have changed it... If I changed it by accident, CTRL z or history tab easily rolls back.
I've combed through preferences and settings and can't see anywhere to disable this.. Please tell me it's possible to make it go awat? 😞
Could you please post screenshots with the pertinent Panels (Toolbar, Layers, Options Bar, …) visible?
So far I seem to be unable to reproduce the issue so what changes are you talking about exactly?
I don't get that here on Windows. Whether I commit the text or not, saving does not give me that warning.
Have you tried resetting preferences?

File > Save does not bring up this dialog for me on the Mac in PS 2021, so I can't reproduce it either.
If you have edited text and have not cancelled or committed the type, then you should get this message when you choose File > Close and haven't saved yet. (That's not what you said you are doing.) For troubleshooting purposes, can you check to see if the options bar still has the check and cancel buttons available when you get the alert?
Can you tell us the file type you are using in case that makes a differnence?

Is 2022 a typo? The current version is 2021.
Sorry, yes, 2022 was a typo...
I have a graphic with a text layer over the top.. I edit the wording of the text then Shift Ctrl S to 'save as' and am prompted with
'commit the type layer edits before saving' and need to confirm before the save window pops up.
Windows 10 platform and latest version of PS. I'm using .psd files for editing.
Yes, options bar does still have check and cancel buttons when alert pops up. (see attached screenshot)
I'm at a loss having never seen this in previous versions and even googling returns no results other than to explain that commit is required when working with smart objects (which I'm not).
I'd prefer not to reset preferences if possible.

Hi @GreedyBrat ,
Now that you have said you are using File > Save As (Ctrl+Shift+S) and not File > Save (Ctrl+S), I have tested again.
When the text has not been committed and I use Save As, I get the Alert as you said. With File > Save, I do not.
When you do Save As without doing Save first, the original PSD stays in the last saved state and will not be the same as the new file with Save As. Do you want the two files to be the same or different? These two methods will bypass the Alert if you have skipped committing the test:
I can't honestly tell you if this alert appeared or not in previous versions when you used Save As and skipped the step to commit the text, because ever since text was live text and not pixels on the current layer, I have always used Commit.
I'm on a Mac, so the Windows users might test this with Save As instead on Save.
As far as I can tell it is new functionality. I've certainly never seen it appear in other versions when I use this workflow (which is a process I've been using for 8 years or more.
