    Photoshop CC 2014 Crashes Randomly when using the Text Tool...


      Since the most recent Photoshop update, CC 2014 has been extremely buggy and completely unstable on my Mac Pro, which is inexcusable from a paid service .  The most common crash for me occurs when I try to use the “text tool” or attempt to edit text (usually the color).  I am occasionally prompted with a window stating, “Could not complete your request because of a program error” and then Photoshop crashes seconds after.

      After the initial crash and Apple’s various prompts I usually go through 2-3 consecutive cycles of Photoshop attempting to open back up and crashing over and over again.


      I’ve attempted signing out and back in to my Creative Cloud as suggested in several threads, but that was unsuccessful in mitigating the crashing.  Is there a fix for this, other than uninstalling and reinstalling?  My studio has too many upcoming deliverables and deadlines to do a fresh install, so suggestions/solutions would be appreciated .
