Apparently, on this last update of Photoshop 2017 (macOs Sierra), the text area is causing problems while editing it. I'm losing my work on multiple times due to a huge bug.

Essentially, when I click on a box text, the program is stuck on the edit and can't be canceled or confirmed. Everything else go crazy, the menu icons are disappearing when the mouse go over them, the menu is greyed out, and there's nothing else I can do if not force quit and hope the program will recover the file (not always).

Here's a screen of what is happening:

Howdy Alexander,

We're aware of the problem and actively working on a solution.  Expect to see this resolved very soon.  Or, if you go back to the previous version of Mac OS, the problem will likewise go ahead...not that I'm pointing any fingers...

Thanks,
David

Whats the progress? I've been struggling with it more than 5 month now, still haven't found any fix. :/

Howdy Rachel,

This should be fixed in the latest release, available last week (Wednesday, April 5th, 2017).  Please update and your problem should disappear.

Thanks,
David

Hi Klavs,

And the check box in the Options Bar does nothing?  What about pressing the <Enter> on the numeric keypad?  How about CMD/CTRL+<Enter>?  If you move your cursor away from the text box, does it ever change -- if so, clicking should also confirm a text layer.  What other apps do you have running?  Which OS?

Thanks,
David
