Photoshop CC 2019: Type tool placeholder text ignores Hyphenation preferences

A minor problem with the new "Fill new type layers with placeholder text" setting when using the Type tool. If it's enabled, the previous Hyphenation settings are ignored and hyphenation is always toggled on. I don't think this is intentional behavior since all the other previous paragraph settings are ignored. Character settings such as type size are preserved, as expected though. If the new setting is disabled, all paragraph settings are preserved when creating a new text layer.

I've just been looking at this in our 20.0.1 release, and I can't reproduce the issue on either Mac or Windows. Current Hyphenation setting in the Paragraph panel is respected by our auto-fill with placeholder text feature. Remember that the Hyphenation setting in the Paragraph panel would be reset if you ever trash your Prefs in the Preferences dialog or by keyboard shortcut on relaunch of Photoshop.

I believe we've recently fixed a bug in this area. So please take a look and let us know if you're still seeing a problem. Thanks so much!
