    Why won't character tracking (aka, chr spacing) work properly?

      I'm not sure if this started happening with an update, or if it just randomly started happening, but for the past couple of weeks the character tracking drop-down in the paragraphs palette is buggy.

       

      If I select -100 in the drop-down, I get -68.

       

      If I select -50, I get -34.

       

      If I try typing the number manually, it switches to those new values just like the drop-down does.

       

      I can't for the life of me tell Photoshop to set character tracking to -100, -50, or ANYTHING anywhere near specific. It's like it does a little math when we choose a number, and modifies that number according to this math.

       

      The math appears to be "change it to 68% of whatever the designer set it to", but it might actually be more complex than that.

       

      Is there a fix for this? Did I accidentally toggle something on?
