Photoshop CC Leading Problems - Bottoms out leading

I have no idea what I did. It might have been after I transformed some type, or I might have done nothing, but all of a sudden, if I have 14pt type, and my leading is 14pt, it put's a huge space in the leading as if there was an extra return in there.

To make it look normal, I have to take the leading to .001pt on a 14pt size type.

I've installed the 14.2 update, re-started, and I don't change my leading by scrubbing.

Does this happen with one font, or all fonts?
Which OS version?

I'm fairly certain it's a preferences fix, because I can go to other files that are correct and not have a problem, but if the weird type is the last thing I selected, any new file has the same problem.

Also, not sure how to clean my cc preferences.

Ok, experimented. If I go to a file with the correct text settings, select a text items, and start a new file, the new file text settings will be correct.

If, however, I go to a file with the bad text settings, start a new file, that new file will have the same bad text settings. The only way to correct it seems to be to select text on a file that is good, and start a new file that way.

Howdy,

The problem is due to Photoshop attempting to maintain your old settings in your new document. Photoshop actually tries really hard to do that and in the case of transformed text, does NOT do a great job. This is something we are planning on working on.

Thanks,
David
