I just installed 13.0.5 update. I'm having trouble using scrubby input to adjust leading. The leading will snap to a different number after release from scrubby input.
This occurs after scaling text layer.

To reproduce:
create new file 1000 x 1000 @ 72PPI
Type in two lines of text at 72 pt.
Go Edit >Transform>Scale and scale text either up or down, commit transform.
Select the two lines of text and use scrubby to input leading value. after release of scrubby the leading value jumps to unexpected numbers.

I thought this got fixed at some point? I guess not.

Okay, I can finally post this:

We have made many fixes to the behavior of transformed text and they are now available in the latest release, Photoshop 14.1, which you can download RIGHT NOW. I will acknowledge, there are still a few lingering issues to resolve, but for most users, these fixes should handle their problems. We felt it was better to get a partial fix out now than a perfect fix in the future. We are still planning additional improvements for a coming release.

If you are still struggling with problems, by all means let us know so we can make sure we address them.

Thanks and enjoy!
