I too have this same issue with the text not resizing in the newer version of Photoshop CC 2018. It's awful and makes Photoshop now feel like a piece of hot garbage when working with text. It's really pretty bad, and from what I've read so far there are many other odd related issues like this besides this one in particular. To me this is a pretty bad one since text is one of the staples of the design process and it's not handled correctly anymore in Photoshop CC 2018.
It's like somewhere in a board room meeting they got together and said: "Hey Bob, what can we do make our product more unstable and less desirable?"
Adobe needs to fix this ASAP.
Same issue, neither using the text window or toolbar at the top adjust the size of the selected text until pressing "enter". Text is also deselected after pressing "enter" meaning i must reselect the text in order to resize it again. This is the worst bug for anyone that works with text in illustrator and adds so much extra time to something that would normally take seconds. Another HUGE step backwards for the Photoshop user experience, THANKS ADOBE!
I have the same issue, it really drove me mad. So I have decided to downgrade it to CC 2017, which solved it. Hopefully it will be fixed in the one of the following updates, otherwise I really have no interest to use it anymore
Just in case, it will interest someone from Adobe, here are my specs
I do have the same problem also with CC2018, since the last recent update, and it's awful (quite impossible!) to work with Photoshop in these conditions !
Please Adobe, update PS CC2018 quickly : thesoftware is useless with this bug inside ! :-/
Thanx for reading
I have the most recent version, but after the latest updates in addition to the previouse problems, now my text is also very tiny, even with textsizes of 1000 pt and higher , tried to use CS6 in which I don't have the original problem, but this new one
I am having the same issue PS CC 2018 ver 19.1.2. I can not resize text or object - anything in a layer.
it's March 20, 2018
