There was a bug introduced with CC2018 that affects the leading entry on type that has been transformed.
Adobe know about it and are working on a fix. 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.
Thanks Dave. That worked. The value I entered into the properties leading field adjusted the leading but changed the number I entered into a decimal point. I'm guessing it's the legacy % of a previous transformation I did.
I can't believe Adobe knows about this and ignores it. It's been a huge pain since I've updated to 2018 and have had to create many type layers because I didn't know there was a work around.
Thanks for your help, appreciate it.
Adobe are not ignoring the problem. They are working on the fix. Hopefully we will not have to wait too long.
What I meant by "ignore" is that they thought it was ok to role out the 2018 app with a core functionality not functioning. I would consider this core functionality for any working with type and image and not being able to modify type attributes would be a big enough issue to not launch the update until the issue is resolved.
Agreed 100%. Let me add my very personal impression as a long time user of Adobe products: Adobe is going downhill – fast.
