Photoshop CC Bug: up & down arrows don't work in multiline text boxes

Windows 10, up-to-date Photoshop CC.  With an image loaded, go into the File | File Info... dialog, and start editing EXIF information.

In the "Description" block, most of the cursor controls work as normal - back arrow, fwd arrow, Home and End are all fine.

Up arrow and Down arrow, however, do not work.  The cursor doesn't move.

Does anyone else see this behaviour?

I am having my issueS as well with PS. I do not usually use that feature but I am aware of it. I tried an experiment with 'your' issue. I filled the entire block with letters and I too cannot move the curser up and down, but side to side. The same is true for the other blocks. It is a drag, because it 'works' here, in this block. If they don't fix it, what I did, was just move the curser to the spot you want to be (or line) and then click. Until then we are out of luck. Good Luck!

Howdy Alan,

Yes, we are aware of this issue and looking into a fix.  Thank you, however, for letting us know.  Hopefully, we'll have a fix out soon.

Thanks,
David
