ESC key after creating a text layer to remove it

Hi

when I select a text layer with the text tool by clicking directly on the text, I sometimes click aside the layer. So :

1) My layer is not selected,
2) Photoshop created a new text layer with "Lorem Ipsum" inside (with the cursor blinking on it).

In Photoshop CS6, I quick press ESC Key so the layer disappear from layers window.
In Photoshop CC, ESC Key removes the cursor, but keep the "Lorem Ipsum" text layer.

> So I have to remove the text layer and try to click better !

There's a preference for that. Under Preferences> Type> Use ESC key to commit text. It's checked by default. Uncheck it and when you press ESC, the type layer that hasn't yet been committed will vanish.

Oh, and if you don't want Lorem Ipsum text by default, there's a preference for that, too.  It's Fill new Type layers with placeholder text. It's also enabled by default. Uncheck it and you won't get the Lorem Ipsum.

Or if you like to see how Lorem Ipsum will look in your selected font and font size, as long as it's selected you can simply start typing and it will disappear.

Howdy Nicolas,

Cristen is totally correct.  The reason things are different from CS6 is that we added most of this in later versions.  But, as we typically do, we include preferences so users can have their previous experiences as well.

Hope that clarifies things,
David
