Actions palette in PS CC2015 only displays the text in a limited number of actions, below this limit the palette displays blank action names and steps. Problem not there in 2014 release

Something is wrong on your system, and the OS is not drawing strings for some reason.

What OS version are you using?

Win 8 64bit. Same problem on 2 machines and bug replicated by Adobe tech in remote session, not fixed in latest update though.

Photoshop CC 2015 hasn't had any updates yet.

Nor have we sen this problem on our machines.

It appears that something is preventing basic OS APIs from drawing strings in the actions palette.

If you scroll to the top or bottom in the palette, do the strings draw correctly?

Scrolling makes no difference, the actions at the top of the palette display fine. I thought there was a cc2015 update a couple of days ago.

Er, if they draw at the top then scrolling does make a difference. That means that the problem is likely with a view coordinate overflow. And that means it is probably due to a bug we've already fixed and will update soon.

Only manifests itself with many actions installed and doesn't have same problem on cc2014 on same machine.
