photoshop CS6 Bug : infinite loop on when using levels. Can't offer specifics on its origin, error window offers only this: "Invalid numeric entry. A number between 0.01 and 9.99 is required. Previous value inserted." When you hit OK, the error window reappears, over and over again. You have no choice but to force quit the application.

I had this issue and had not saved the file. I am using a Mac with #Adobe PS CS6. as far as #keystrokes, I unplugged the keyboard, held the escape key while plugging it back in and almost somotaneously switched back to my mouse while continuing to hold escape with the other hand. I clicked repeatedly on the bacground text and eventually got a flashing cursor. Once there, I cleared all of the text and repeated the plug-in-out process and finally was able to escape the #dialoge #loop.

Yes. I'm running 13.0.5 X64 on new iMac. This has happened twice. Once yesterday and once today.

Odd - I can't reproduce that in Photoshop CS5, CS6, or CC.
