Reproducible : YES

Issue brief:
After copying a Text layer from one PSD file to another, the layer is no longer editable as a "text" layer in the second document.

Steps to reproduce:
1) Open Photoshop
2) Create a new photoshop document (Document1.psd)
3) Use the Text tool to create some text ("Hello World")
4) Create a new photoshop document (Document2.psd)
5) Go back to the first document (Document1.psd), select the Text layer in the layers panel and select "Duplicate layer". Provide the destination document as "Document2"
6) Go to Document2.psd, select the Text tool from the tool palette, click on the text that was imported

Cursor clicks inside the text, text can be edited, font can be changed, etc

On clicking with the Text tool, A new text layer is seen to be created in the layers panel, the imported text can be moved around and scaled (like a picture), but cannot be edited as text...

Additional Information:
Issue exists even if you drag/drop the Text layer between the two documents instead of using Duplicate Layer.
