Options for Type fail to be consistent across documents (size and leading)

FEATURE REQUEST

 

Issue

Photoshop 24.7 or later calculates the default font size based on document resolution and zoom factor.  To disable this feature and return to the legacy behavior, set "DefaultFontSize 0" in PSUserConfig.txt.

 

Disabling this in a config file does not work for me for a number of reasons listed below.

 

 

Adobe Help Page

Disable automatically setting default font size

Required Text (sic)

Compatibility

# Disable automatically setting default font size
DefaultFontSize 0

  • v24.7 or later

Photoshop calculates the default font size based on document resolution and zoom factor. When a new document is created, or an existing document without type layers selected is opened, the font size will be reset to the newly calculated default font size. Also, the leading will be set to Auto.

Previously, the default font size was always 12 pt, and sometimes this would be too small depending on resolution and zoom factor. Disabling this option will return legacy/default functionality.

 

 

How this affects my workflow

1. I teach classes online and my computer has to look and act the same as the students. I can't change my computers in a config file to behave differently from theirs.

2. When live classes start again, I will always be at a different computer in a classroom.

3. Some of us are not new users and we know what we are doing. We do not want Photoshop to reset the typesize for us and we never, ever use autoleading.

4. We expect that if we set the typesize to 11, it will stay on 11 in every document we create until we change it, and not jump to something else.

 

 

Suggestion for Adobe Engineers

Instead of a config file, can you either

  • put this in the options bar for the Type tool
    or
  • put this in Preferences for Type

I wouldn't mind if it was the default as long as I could disable it quickly and demonstrate to the class how to do it.
