Photoshop CS5: Text selection gets deleted when font is changed to bold or italic

I have a problem with Photoshop CS 5.1

I select the text in the text box, change the font to 'bold' or 'italic' in the 'character' menu, and about a second after it changes, before I have a chance to CMD+ENTER to commit the change, it deletes whatever text was selected.

How do I fix this?

Hi Jason,

You're running Mac OS 10.9 right? And you have Dictation activated too, correct? If "yes" to both, then if you turn off Dictation, you'll find the problem will go away. We've already reported it to Apple.

If you said "no" to either of the above, then please tell me more...

Thanks,
David

Hi,

We haven't heard of this bug on the Windows platform.  And, that said, it sounds like you're describing a slightly different problem.  Could you more specifically describe the problem you've encountered?  What are you doing when it comes up?  Does it happen all the time?  Are you running any other apps at the same time?

Thanks,
David
