Hey Everyone,

Im creating a design for website in Adobe Photoshop CC 20.0.1

But i have a problem. Everytime i try to select a text layer with my text tool the text changes to random text.

It doesnt matter which text layer I select it changes to a random text from the document.

Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

Yeah I tried that, but it doesnt place placeholder text, but it automatically copies text from another textarea and pastes it in the one I select.

And this is how it looks like after i select the text layer, it just changes to another text from the document. I tried your tips but they dont work. I updated Photoshop to the newest version. I tried to turn of my Mac. Nothing works.

It only happens with this document even after resetting the text tool and Photoshop.

I'm having the same issue.  I double clock the font to edit the words and it automatically italicizes it and the properties menu pops open.  So I have to make multiple changes just to edit one letter.
