I cannot edit type in PS CC. When I double click a type layer it selects all but will not let me edit the text or move it. The arrow tool will not move it. The I-bar will not let me enter the text field.

Hi Frank,

What OS are you on? Could you post a screenshot? When text is selected, it should be editable. I'm a little confused.

I can also do a web-hosted screenshare with you later today.

Thanks,
David

That would be great. I am on Mavericks, Mac Pro. The issue is intermittent but persistent. I made a screen capture movie illustrating the issue. I am doing a cut and paste job from word to PS. I have done this with other PS versions with no problem. CC seems to get stuck and will not let me edit the type.

Thanks, Frank, we found the issue and I have logged a bug.

The workaround for anyone else with this is to click off of PS and then click back onto PS. Or, simply, when copying between PS and another app, commit changes before leaving PS.

Thanks,
David
