Hello Adobe,

 

I just upgraded to the latest version of photoshop - 21.1.1, and now I am running into a very annoying bug which makes working with text difficult.

 

When I press backspace to remove what I just typed, photoshop lags and sometimes respects the backspace command.  At the moment I have to press backspace about a 100 times to remove one line of text from whatever I'm typing.

 

It doesn't matter which font I'm using.  Arial performs the same as all the other fonts do.

 

I unchecked all the type preferences and noticed that nothing is different.

 

So... how can I type?

I'm running the latest version of Windows 10

 

 

Thanks, have a nice day,

 

-  Tyler

Update:  It appears to be an issue with the GPU:

 

This was never before an issue with Photoshop, but if I turn the gpu performance to "Basic" that seems to fix it.  For the record, I am using a Nvidia GTX 1080

And this sometimes happens when I'm typing as well.  It gets laggy and sometimes doesn't respect a letter of whatever I'm trying to type.

Hello, I would first try to reset the text tool by doing a right click on its icon in the Option bar.

There is also a reset in the Character panel top right menu

I am experiencing the exact same problem!!! It is incredibly annoying and has not been fixed with the newest updates. Have you been able to work around it? I hate having to type in another program now.

 

I question my Photoshop subscription more often now, why are we paying so much money for so many bugs? I'm fed up at this point.
