I just discovered that when I click in the Tracking field and hit Shift + down arrow to decrease paragraph tracking followed by Tab, the number jumps from 0 to -6580, after which PS gives me a warning ("An integer between -1000 and 10000 is required. Closest value inserted.") that will keep popping up no matter what I do, forcing me to force quit the app.

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!
