I recently had this bug appear in a Photoshop. A portion of one of my text entries created a repeating pattern of one and a half of the letters, and started appearing on multiple layers. Even appearing on new text created. It has now spread to a seperate Photoshop file, even though I never dragged anything from the corrupted file to the new file. Here's an image of the issue.
It's currently appearing on a Smart Layer, though it isn't present inside the Smart Layer itself.
Has anyone seen this issue before and figured out how to address it? I can't find anyone else describing this issue in other posts.
If you're using PS 2019, make sure you have Legacy Compositing checked in the preferences under performance.
I just updated so I'm using Photoshop CC 2019 v 20.0.2.
I tried checking it and resetting my Photoshop. The text error is still there on that layer. We'll see if it doesn't happen anymore at least.
Legacy Compositing did not fix my issue. This MO text bug continues to corrupt my files. It happened again today. Seems like a fairly serious bug introduced two updates ago. I probably won't be the only one affected I'm sure.
Im have a simile issue with a file with corrupt text layers and it creating a mask that wasn't there!
Yeah, this looks like a similar or the same issue. Frustrating that there doesn't seem to be anyone from Adobe recognizing the issue.
Hi. That happened with any font?
For me it happened with Futura Bold. Looks like a different font for Amy.
Are you working with fonts of Adobe Fonts service? Or is a Font installed on your computer?
It is a font from my computer. But that's most of my fonts, and has always been most of my fonts. And this issue only appeared after the major update to Photoshop CC 20.0
my font was Knockout on one file and Gotham Med on another file
I have been having this error reoccur since the beginning with PS CC. I have reported it twice now directly to the chat help line, and been ignored. I have uploaded files showing the error, and no one at PS will pay any attention.
I have this happen to me about once every several months, and I cannot reproduce it at will, but I have saved many files when it occurred. It happened again today, so I know it's not been fixed.
It destroys the file for practical use, and I have to go back to an earlier save and repeat my work. When I do, the problem does not always reappear in the same file after I repeat the same actions that caused it.
My occurrances have been on different fonts, entirely different files, and in every PS release since I got CC.
I also have text pattern spreading all over the PSD file, they can't be selected, nor deleted, don't appear in layer and are exported by the generator really messing up a lot of work. It started to happen when I selected all the text in the file and changed the font. I reverted back to Myriad Pro but nothing does.
Help would be appreciated, a lot !
Here are some samples in PS :
It's April of 2022 and the issue is still happening. Anyone find a solution yet? Or should I give up on PS? Now even when I revert to an older version, it's still there. It's ruined all of my work and is now affecting how I make a living.
Me too. In May 2022. Never happened before. I typed 42nd and now it patterns 42nd all over the page. Future. Pretty crappy.
I am having the same issue.
