    Photoshop gets stuck in Type Tool

    coryb76558151 Level 1

      This is the second time this has happened to me this week. Both time I had clicked on a text box with the type tool to edit the text, did Cmd A and Cmd C to copy the text, then hit Esc (I have it set to cancel the changes on Esc). But it doesn't cancel the changes and the text box is still live, I can still type inside the text box, I can't select any other tool in the toolbox (when I try, the entire toolbox goes blank), I can't select any other layer, clicking on the Check Mark or Cancel button at the top tool bar does nothing, and Cmd Return does nothing.


      Both times this happened I had to Force Quit Photoshop but I'm hoping someone out there might have a fix for this for the future.


      Here's what I'm running:

      Photoshop CC 2017.0.1

      MacBook Pro (13in Retina, early 2015)

      macOS Sierra 10.12.3

      2.7 Intel Core i5

      8GB Ram
