Anytime i add a new text layer in photoshop cc 2017 they are about 20% taller than they should be. and the character palette shows everything to be set properly (see below).

The only thing i see right off hand is the All Caps is enabled which could be the cause of the issue.

eeh not so fast, solvy mcsolverson.

I am having the same issue. Also notice the form of the "O" even if the font were all caps, there'd be no reason for it to be stretched like that.

I'll keep looking for another answer.

Hello, I've been having the same problem for a couple of years now. All of my fonts within both Photoshop and Illustrator are stretched. I have Photoshop version 21.2.3 on MacOS Monterey 12.2.1. Everything in the character panel looks normal to me, and I've tried reseting the character to no avail. 

 

Please help! It's driving me absolutely crazy.

Have you tried updating your version of Photoshop from the Creative Cloud app, "Photoshop 22.x and earlier have not been tested for compatibility with macOS Monterey (version 12)" as per the below link
