Photoshop: Selecting/Changing Values Behavior within Panels

I am unsure if this is OS specific or not, but it would be a welcome quality-of-life change. I use an Apple laptop and a Windows desktop. 

Within Photoshop on Mac, if you click within the 'Character Size' box inside the Properties panel the entirety of the characters are highlighted to then be replaced. Unknown to me, this behavior is actually not consistent throughout every other Adobe program on Mac OS (as it should be).

It seems that on Windows, the behavior is set to only highlight on a double-click as well. This isn't the end of the world but there are times where it will not register a proper double-click and will not select but a portion or just move the cursor. Even more irritating is when I am not precise enough and accidentally highlight 'pt' and not the number values. 

It is such a silly little thing, but it is an immense timesaver when you are not having to deal with this little quirk and varying behavior between programs/operating systems. Some may say "you shouldn't be handling text within Photoshop," sure...and others may point out I can just transform it using the handles...some people can be just a bit OCD at times with their values. 

Yes, it could definitely be something I get accustomed to...yet if there is/was a solution please implement or inform me. 

Thank you!
