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,
David

Marked as "not a problem"? In which universe is such behavior normal?

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!

We have been working on a solution to these bugs for CS6 as well a for CC. While the transformed type fix for the Creative Cloud is already released, that for CS6 is still being refined.

If you are interested, I would invite you to join a special prerelease program to validate these bugs really are resolved. All you have to do is respond to this message. I will then submit your name and email address to the program. You will need to sign a non-disclosure agreement, since this software is not available to the general public. Then, you can download and tryout the fix for yourself. If we've missed something, your voice can help us catch it and repair it.

Thanks,
David
