Does everyone else who uses Photoshop have to deal with a Character Panel which doesn't update characters in realtime?
Ex: Select some text, adjust the leading. Does it update the text while adjusting, or do you have to let go of the mouse (or otherwise end the edit) before seeing the result?
Which version of photoshop and operating system are you using?
You can get it to update in realtime if you first select the text layer. (or portion of the text you want to edit) and then use the Scrubby Sliders
By that i mean double click on the text layer thumbnail in the layers panel or select the portion of the text you want to edit by switching to the Type Tool and highlighting the text with the cursor.
Right you are! Wow, I am surprised that there are idiosyncrasies as subtle, and slyly irritating as this one.
It's like Photoshop Dev's decided to get close to greatness, and then stop somewhere between merely operational and faux-responsive.
Thank you for the insight and the link.
