Click in the font size box and type the size you want. Make sure to press enter.
Thank you, since we are talking about text, i won't start a new question, anybody can tell me how to stay with Helvetica font type? Every time I reopen PS, the font has changed back to Myriad, which I never used. indeed it shows selected in the font type menu, which I didn't, thanks again
As far as I know you can create a new type preset and use that. There also may be a way to go into the system folders, but that would be way more complex and perhaps someone else could better advise you. Glad the sizing worked out.
