PS CC 2014
Win7 x64 SP1

This is yet another of those moments where you think.....is it just me?...

The Scenario:
A regular text layer, font changed, layer duplicated, duplicate text layer moved.

The problem:
Once the duplicate text layer is moved the original text layer is deleted.

To Replicate:
1. Type some text.
2. Hold 'CTRL' and move the text around.
3. Highlight the font in the workspace dropdown box.
4. Use the keyboard cursor keys to change the font.
5. Hold 'ALT' and click & drag the text layer in the layers panel to duplicate the layer.
6. Again, hold 'CTRL' and drag the duplicate text layer.
7. When you stop dragging the ORIGINAL text layer is deleted.


So....is it just me?
Is it a bug?
Is it yet another 'Friday Afternoon' code writing issue?

Tune in next week for the next exciting installment of 'Is It Just Me?...'

Regards.
MrTom.

I know it's not what you need, but I'm using a Mac with CS6e and mine works fine under the same circumstances you described.

I hope some other CC users will give this a try.

Thanks Sam, much appreciated.

I've also tried this on CS6 and CC and there doesn't seem to be a problem with either.

Looks like its CC 2014 only....or me.

I don't use CC or a Mac so nothing for me to say.

I haven't experienced that before with previous versions or even during a time I was using a Mac at work office. But I've experienced some weirdness at times on a PC.....

click drag a layer (object or text) and it automatically duplicates....... LOL. An irritating reset clears the problem.

Is that a suggestion or are you just reminiscing?

Yaz got me confused! (Not difficult)

Hi MrTom

Just tested it Photoshop CC2014 and can confirm it's the same for me, although I did notice if you drag the text layer to the create new layer icon instead the layer doesn't disappear.

errrrrr.... Spectator side comment?:cheesygrin:

Both actually.... lol .. as well as resetting the preference on PS startup.

But since I haven't experienced your problem and with CC on a MAC , I dunno if my trip down memory lane and fix can help you.... even for just temporarily....

Thanks gedstar, much appreciated.

As you say, different workflows work just fine...its just that particular combination that seems to have a problem.....it would be the shortest quickest way too eh....typical! LOL

It doesn't look like it, if gedstar has the same issue then it must be global......good old Adobe!

When does the show start? :popcorn:

Thanks again guys.

Regards.
MrTom.
