Photoshop CC type tool issues. Disappearing type

I just installed the update to photoshop CC and I'm now having problems using the type tool. I will type something then try to move it and the line of type disappears. It actually gets deleted. This is happening constantly to the point that I cannot use the type tool reliably anymore. I'm on a MAC using 10.9.4. WTF

Howdy Ron,

You might want to make sure that you do not have Dictation turned on.  There is a known bug with OS 10.9 where Dictation's buffer's errors out and causes trouble.  It's fixed on 10.10.

If that doesn't solve your problem, ping me and I can try to troubleshoot with you further, including a web-hosted screenshare if you'd like.

Thanks,
David

Thank you. I chatted with tech support and that was the problem. I didn't realize I had Dictation on. I have to watch out not to press the fn key again.

No worries, Ron.  You certainly were not alone.  When 10.9 rolled out, we got this complaint a LOT.  Apple has since fixed the problem for later OSes.  Have a good one!
