Photoshop CC 19.0.1: Text Size Scubby Slider and Up Down Arrow no longer gives live updates

I updated to 19.0.1 this morning, and everything is lovely with the exception of the Character palette. I'm suddenly unable to see increases or decreases made to any inputs in the Character palette via the up- and down-arrow keys in real time (only when I tab out of a field or hit Enter to commit the change does the actual type onscreen update). I'm able to make updates with arrow keys in other palettes (e.g. Paragraph). I should mention that I'm on a Macbook Pro (OS 10.13.1).

Howdy Jesse and everyone,

Yes, in order to get the fix out for leading with transformed type as soon as possible, we had to trade-off live updates to bumping (arrow keys) and scrubbing (mousing the control).  We are working on fixes to return the earlier behavior and they should ship with the next release to go out.  Our concern was including these fixes in a dot-release as they were untested and we wanted to get our customers the leading fix ASAP without breaking anything else.

I hope that makes sense.

Sorry for the annoyance,
David

It's been two weeks since the official response. Any news on when we can expect this fix? My workflow is really broken with 19.0.1...

Just revert back to CC 2017 - on the Adobe Creative cloud drop down under 'Apps' click and hold down on the little down facing chevron and choose "other versions".

It will install the old version back on your computer but you may lose settings (super annoying). But at least Photoshop will work again.

They should have never released 2018 in October, but you know — shipping software on the dates that upper management dictates is what's most important. ;)

I can't believe this... who releases an update that breaks such a key component of their software? I recently began paying for a subscription to Adobe's CC and I'm pissed. I thought an upgrade would make me more productive, not less. What morons. Please, Affinity, rescue us from the monster Adobe has become, in the same way Adobe once rescued us from Quark!

Hi Marv,

Sorry for the frustration this issue is causing you. If you'd rather go back to a previous version while you wait for this to be resolved, it only takes moments to install a previous version of Photoshop.

Hi David, thank you for your reply. You've said that there is a work around regarding the preview. but having part of the text or all of it selected means it's  in modal state. This is the actual worflow for everybody and this is exactely what doesn't work anymore. Not sure to understand the work around here.

I know you can't really comment and say exactly when 19.1 will be out, but can you give us a rough estimate? Like in a few weeks, a few months, mid summer? Just curious how long we have to wait and if I should go ahead and install CC2017 so I can use photoshop the way I have been using it for at least a decade.

Howdy Akipika,

So, I can tell you that it will be after the holidays.  There is a certain cadence with releases, but we cannot confirm specific dates.  We're really sorry that we cannot be more forthcoming, but we're actually legally constrained.  I literally just got off the phone to verify I could share what I am with you all.

Thanks and sorry for the headache,
David

That sucks you guys are so tied down by legality... maybe this year I will ask Santa for a world without lawyers :D

I will go ahead and load up 2017 and use it for things that require a lot of type... I never knew how much I scrolled through fonts and font sizes until that feature is broken. Thanks at least giving us some aspect of a time frame.
