So some may know many may not but in Photoshop CC 2018 when selecting and highlighting text and highlighting the font size and then using the up and down arrow keys it doesn't change in real time on the fly like it did in previous versions....I thought this was FOR SURE a bug, but then today I spoke to an Adobe supervisor after almost 2 long hours with techs letting them drive my computer as if they knew they were going to solve this....which of course they didn't!  The supervisor told me this is expected behavior of Photoshop CC 2018 and that the feature was removed from this version?!??!  Is this a for real thing moving backwards in the software?!  I had more fun working in Photoshop 10 years ago I swear.  Please chime in if anyone knows if this is going to be resolved soon.  I uninstalled 2018 and reverted to 2017 which is perfectly fine for me!  Aloha.

I am not an Adobe employee but I read somewhere that the feature was disabled temporarily in order to fix another bug which was deemed to be of a higher priority. I also read somewhere in the forums from an Adobe employee, that they're working on switching it back on for a future release. p.s. while typing this, I thought let me look for the official response, which can be found here -
