I am using Photoshop CS6 Extended and after the last major update I am starting to have an annoying bug. Sometimes when I try to check the font size of a text in a layout, photoshop is indicating a wrong size.
If the font size is 40pt for example, Photoshop is showing me 25.83 pt.
Apart from the update, I didn't change anything from the previews work space that I had.

Attached you can find a screenshot with the error.

Hi Laszlo,

The bug is due to transformed type. This problem is fixed in the latest update of CC, 14.1.1 and we are working on a similar fix for CS6 users.

In the meanwhile, a temporary solution to the problem would to simply not transform type; change the point size instead. Or, if that is too inimical to your workflow, go ahead and make the transformations that you want, note the new point size of the font, and Undo. Afterwards, you can simply change the point size of the font WITHOUT a transformation and the bug will not be triggered. Not perfect, but it will give you options until we can hammer out a solution.

Thanks,
David
