Freezes While Selecting Text

Whenever I select text in Adobe Photoshop CC 2017, the program freezes. I can sometimes get it to unfreeze by clicking on a different layer but not always. I have been trying to finish a single page of an editorial for hours and this particular page is text only. It's very frustrating. I only have a few days to get this entire project finished and I have a lot more to do. Help!!!

Howdy Steven,

Sorry for the late reply -- I just saw this.

You are sure you have the most up-to-date version of Photoshop?  And this happens with all files, including newly made ones?  Does it also happen with all fonts?  Which OS are you running on?

Let me know and let's get things working again for you,

In addition to the questions asked by David, as you mentioned this happens with the page which has text on it, I would suggest you to try the steps from the article to troubleshoot fonts:
