Same issue here! We deal with text all the time at work so it's a HUGE pain! Adobe, please fix this!
Someone should provide OS and AE details down to the last decimal point. I cannot reproduce any text issues on Windows 8, OS X 10.11.5 on 3 different machines (windows 8 running on a MacPro using bootcamp).
FILE a detailed bug report with complete workflow and system info. Feature Request/Bug Report Form - Adobe
Hi Rick, It happens on all of my co workers machines as well. It also seems to be present on my Windows 7 system at home. It's when selecting a range of text in the comp window when the lagging is occurring. I know it's a bug because previous versions on the same systems did not perform this way. Highlighting text was always instant and real time. I do not know if it's a video card issue or maybe even an OS issue. I know at home I am using a Geforce GTX 980. It's very frustrating and hope it gets resolved. I would be glad to record a screen capture of it soon if you'd like to see?
I just copied the entire text from this thread to a text area and then just to an empty text layer and I can find no delay or bug on any of my machines. Please submit a detailed bug report. Include a screen capture with that. Sorry that I can't confirm the problem on any of my machines. If I could confirm it I'd file a bug myself.
You might try this. Open a project with laggy text. Select the text layer and pre-compose. Open the pre-comp and select the text layer and then go to the Character Panel, make note of the settings and the font and the reset it. See if the text no longer laggy try going changing the font first then the other settings.
