I've moved this from the Using the Community forum (which is the forum for issues using the forums) to the Photoshop forum so that proper help can be offered.

Hi @defaultpl9y6q2a1grg 

Please show two screen shots: one from each image

  • Type tool
  • Select a few characters of the text
  • Show this with the Character panel (Window menu)

I am using the Text tool and CNTR X cutting some text from one line then using the Text tool and finding another spot and hitting paste.  The original font size is 90 and the new pasted font is 74.96

Thanks

They both say 74.96; neither says 90. Can you select a few letters to see if that changes? Did you resize the text with the Control / Character / Properties panels or with Edit > Transform?

Hi @defaultpl9y6q2a1grg ,

 

Seeing the decimals points instead of whole numbers (74.96) makes me think the type may have been scaled with Ctrl+T (Edit > Transform). Please watch this short video from Jesús Ramirez from the Photoshop Training Channel titled STOP Scaling Text in Photoshop! 

 

He explains how to fix the text if it was scaled.

See if this fixes your issue.

Try using CTRL +  Shift + V, It removes any previous formatting that might be getting picked up when you're copying text.
