Leading doesn't work anymore since the update... :(

This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Photoshop CC 2018: Character leading broken

Since the 2018 update, text-leading does not work anymore. Whether I'm trying to increase or decrease the leading by the arrow keys, dropdown or just inputting a number, the leading always resorts back to 9,12px... then to 3,69px... then to 1,71px...and then keeps decreasing in random numbers until it reached 0... pressing ESC will give an error then which means I cannot get out of this situation.

I have to press ESC 12 times before Photoshop 'understands' that I just want to move on with my work.

The workaround is to not use leading anymore and keep making new textfields... this is just stupid.

Can this please be fixed instead of adding bullsh*t-new-features no-one needs?

I agree that there is a problem (I have encountered many with the new text module). An easy way around your problem is to insert "void spaces" as a lead.

Howdy Mick,

The problem that you are having is with transformed text.  If you use text that's never been transformed you will not see the problem.

We know that this is a serious issue and are actively working on a solution that will be available soon.  Sorry for the inconvenience.
