Hi there,

So strange text behaviour here: http://screencast.com/t/atGbhTznY. I think the video is self explanatory.

You transformed the text. As a result, the font size you see is the equivalent transformed value displayed, not the actual value. When you type in a new value, the text is set to that value, although the transform is still applied. This is not a new feature and also happens in CS5 and earlier.

Thanks,

We've released an update to correct this issue such that the behavior of text size/transforms is the same as CS5:

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!
David
