I recently upgraded photoshop so I was wondering if there was some new setting to turn this off, or if it''s a known issue with this years PS and I should just uninstall and reinstall an earlier version? It used to never revert to metrics once optical was set, so to do it only after a text box is created is incredibly frustrating, given that I would have to go back to each layer per page and change it, increasing my worktime by ages.
I don't use paragraph styles, only tool presets but with optical selected, I make a text box and it automatically goes to metrics. By pages I just meant psd's. I know that I can obviously select all layers and choose optical, but that's an extra step that I never used to have to do.
