Text layers and smart objects randomly display with a portion cut off. Only corrects if I nudge it up or down.

I’ve been having this issue since I updated to Photoshop CC 2019, but nearly every time I create a new text layer (and occasionally smart objects), once I commit the text it cuts a portion of it off. Seems to be a rendering issue or something. The only way to correct it is to nudge the text layer up or down. And it actually exports like this if I don’t correct it. Here’s a quick gif showing what I mean:


This happens on both my 2012 iMac and my 2018 Macbook Pro, so it doesn't seem to be a hardware problem. Anyone else having this issue? Any ideas on how to fix?
