Stop text movement in the Text panels
Editing transcript and Caption text in the Text panel is very frustrating! When you double click on a word to edit it, the text in the field changes size and gets bolder, thus moving all the text around. Now you have to find the word you were going to edit all over again. Please just enter a text edit mode without moving the text!

I just updated to 15.4 (build 47) on Mac with Big Sur, and the problem persists.
Here are 2 screenshots from the same area of the window, top is in "normal" view mode, bottom is after double-clicking the word "definitely". The margins of the box change, the font gets bolder, and the line-spacing is reduced.

Thank you for your feedback. This is fixed in Premiere Pro 15.4 - the text size and position should now stay the same when editing.
