Hi everybody and thanks in advance for your help. Been a while since I'm having the same issue when i use the text tool... after clicking on a text and editing it, I press Enter or escape and nothing happens, it just frozen, and stop working.
Versión Photoshop CC: 2017.1.1 (Mac)
As you've mentioned that Photoshop text tool is freezing, this could be because of a corrupt font or system cache. Please refer this article Troubleshoot fonts issues in Adobe Photoshop CC, 2015, 2014, CS6, CS5 and let us know if that helps.
