Photoshop: Can't esc or commit paragraph text hitting esc/return or OK/Cancel buttons in options bar

Sometimes (but very often) while in the text editing mode you can not leave it.
The type tool stays selected while in the edited text and nothing else can be done.
Nothing helps (clicking different tool from tool palette, Cmd+Enter, ESC...) even the Photoshop and the document(s) can not be closed and the document(s) can not be saved.

It’s not just me:
https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/issue-with-exiting-esc-text-edit-tool



I found out the bug is triggered by key "ESC" and it might have something to do with multiple monitors.

The only solution for this is to wait 5-10 minutes for auto save and force quit it. With reopening the Photoshop opens the recovered file(s).

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE – someone in Adobe – solve it!

I have never had this problem before, but after updating to High Sierra from El Capitan this week it's suddenly happening literally 5 or 6 times a day for me now! This is absolutely devastating to my workflow, has anyone found a solution yet?

Hi Jamie, I haven't been able to reproduce this. Let's see if we can figure out why this might be happening to you and Petr. It may help if we could see your Photoshop System Info. Launch Photoshop, and select Help > System Info... and copy/paste the text in a reply. A screen recording of the steps leading up to it happening may also be helpful.

Like Petr, I have a dual monitor set up so that tracks, and I often hit ESC to try and get out of editing type so that very well could be triggering it for me too. Also in checking that other thread he linked to, this seems to be specific to High Sierra on Mac.

Actually, I just had this happen without hitting the escape key at all - I just clicked on the cancel (crossed-out circle) button in the type bar. It acts as though there's a window or module open somewhere that doesn't exist- like the program isn't frozen, but all my menus are greyed out and I can't save or leave the type editing tool- I can't even quit the program. The only things that aren't greyed out are under the "Window" menu.

I see a few 3rd party extensions enabled. If you disable those, can you still reproduce the problem?

Blendit  1.0.0 - from the file “/Library/Application Support/Adobe/CEP/extensions/Blendit/index.html”
Ultimate Retouch 3.0  3.1.0 - from the file “/Library/Application Support/Adobe/CEP/extensions/Ultimate Retouch/index.html”
BrushBox  1.0.0 - from the file “/Users/jhtrosen/Library/Application Support/Adobe/CEP/extensions/com.derrickbarth.brushbox/index.html”

How do I do this? I do not have Extension Manager CC and when I try to install it I get an error saying a file is missing. Is there another way to disable or delete extensions?

Sorry, go to Preferences > Plug-Ins...

Uncheck "Load Extension Panels", restart Photoshop

Well shoot. I had extensions disabled all day today and thought maybe that had fixed the problem, but it just happened again now. Any other ideas?

When it happens does always happen with a certain type of text layer (paragraph, or point text)? or doesn't matter?

I only use paragraph text not point text, so I couldn't tell you if it's specific to paragraph or not.

I use dual displays with High Sierra and have not seen this. FWIW.
