When using a type/text area in PS my keyboard arrow key's sometimes just stop working. There's just no more feedback and I have to restart PS to 'fix' the problem. This is a very annoying bug which really degrades my productivity!

Please help!

billy noah,
Yes, I am able to reproduce this now.

Looks like this problem occurs when you enter any numbers in Character or other panels then hit enter/return keys. Note: Application frame is on.

Workaround: This is a focus issue so try clicking desktop or another application or select application frame off.

I will work with type engineer.
Thanks for your help!
