Yep. It looks like the last update broke the Character Panel. It would be nice if Adobe could chime in on this. Very frustrating.
(Problems appear after scaling text)
I posted in the Photoshop.com site (I guess where Adobe wants you to go to report bugs) steps to reproduce.
If you go there and comment or vote on the 3 or 4 posts regarding variations of this new text/Character Panel bug, it will get more visibility.
Couldn't have put it better if I'd said so myself...
It's almost like Moodybird stole the words right from my email. Do you recall what pages the posts you refer to are on...There seem to be an awful lot of pages to sift through.
Yet another train wreck of a patch. That's what happens when a company has a policy of not testing patches before release or the management is thoroughly incompetent.
I pity those who come to rely on the Creative Catastrophe.
I dont know the the below link. But if you go to Photoshop .com feedback. And go to Topics>Problems and sort by most recent, these text bug topics should be on that page. (I created the last one "Scrubby Leading Bug")
