    Unhappy Photoshop Text tool Problem

    so i was using the text tool in Cs6 and the blinking cursor line that usually shows up after whatever i just typed now shows up at the begging of the text. and whenever i input a punctuation mark or space it shows up at the beginning of the text line i started and only goes to the end if i continue to type. anyone have any idea how to fix this? thanks!

    Re: Photoshop Text tool Problem

    I am assuming you are making a "path" for the text to follow... In which case, It is a pain.
    You must click over and over to select the path properly, If you do not achieve the expected result, do the same thing on a slightly different part of the path...
    But, if you are just making plain text without the path... I suggest making the text box slightly larger than it was ,then attempt to type.
    My Photoshop does that sometimes with a small text box...
    If you do the same thing over and over expecting a different result, remember; your insane.

    are you sure you have not swapped the default text tool to another option if it continues reset your text tool and it should be back to normal

    it was happening every time i opened and restarted my photoshop. also i deleted the preferences and opened it again. i was using the correct Text tool.

    BUT. i figured it out. somehow my paragraph settings were messed with. not sure how. but i opened the paragraph panel and changed some things around and now its working perfectly! so happy to have it back haha

    Re: Photoshop Text tool Problem

    Oh please, oh please tell me how you fixed it. I have the same issue adn nothing I've messed with under the paragraph panel does anything.
    Every time I write a sentence and hit a period, or question mark or exclamation mark, it moves the punctuation to the beginning of the sentence: example
    !It's making me mental
    How do i fix this?

    This is what was selected that was making it mess up. selected the option right next to it and it was fixed completely. hopefully this works for you too.
