Yes it is a bug that has been picked up by Adobe. It affects text that has been transformed.
In the meantime there is a workaround:
a. Enter the leading value in the Properties panel.
b. When you hit enter the value in the properties panel box will change to something different (that is a bug) but will now show correctly in the Character panel
c. The value applied to the text will be the same as you entered and now shown in the character panel
Note : The workaround does not work backwards - you must enter in the properties box.
This is an awful bug, please fix it!
I agree, control over leading is pretty damn important, fix this already!!!!
Just to echo .. I'm having the same issue .. and it's real annoying.
This is a very frustrating bug.
I used the Properties panel but it doesn't allow for a custom leading value.
Also, when entering values in Character Styles, it completely skews the typographic settings.
I'm stunned Adobe botched this. The Type tool has been 100% functional for years.
Absolutely ridiculous that the 2018 Photoshop Update went out like this with his bug and that this hasn't been fixed yet! WTH, lets go Adobe, you know how embarrassing this is for you? Fix this damn bug already! jeeze louise!
We have released an update for Photoshop which is Photoshop CC (19.0.1). This update includes many (50+) bug fixes for the top customer reported issues in 19.0.

Please check this link for more info: Photoshop CC 19.0.1 now available | Photoshop Family Customer Community
Uploaded version 19.0.1. Original issue was that line spacing tool is not working. Now it works, but the fix is bubblegum fix. You can now use line spacing tool, but when you want to see the result of the change you need to hit enter. Previously you saw the result in real time before to hitting enter. This Issue is also now on type size tool as well. FIX IS PROPERLY PLZ!
What an embarrassment Adobe?? Really? Fixed? I think not. You might have half fixed one problem with the line leading input field and slider, but now you created a mess. Now, not only do you have to hit enter to see the results with the line leading input field, but the font size input field box, the opacity input field box, the fill input field box, and who knows how many more! Can you please fix this!
Did you see posts regarding photoshop 19.0.1? it still has. a bug where you don't see changes of amounts entered until you hit the enter key, it should reflect changes immediately upon input.
Wow! 6 and 1/2 weeks since the first complaint and still no fix from Adobe !?!?!
HOW is it that I can NOT change the font size and leading?
Are you out of your minds Adobe ??!?!??!?!?!?!?!?!??!
And yes, the crop tool is the absolute worst.
Now what took me 3 seconds takes me 42 minutes...... good job
It still is not working for me either. It is 2018 officially now. Please fix it.
