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!
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.
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
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?
That button isn't showing up in my paragraph panel! I reset photoshop and everything and it's completely non-existent. And yes, I'm in CS6, yes I reset all photoshop settings, yes I reset the paragraph panel, I don't know what else I could possibly reset to get that button. I even tried type without creating a text box, still doesn't work. Grr. It's driving me insane.
I'm been having the exact same problem, but have found a solution which works for me anyway.
Whenever I used a punctuation mark it jumped to the left of the line rather than sitting at the right. I was making a basic text paragraph, no paths, nothing clever.
i was using the default text tool.
I didn't see the same paragraph palette layout that tguitarplyr182 showed earlier. However, when I went to the 'paragraphs styles' palette and clicked on 'new paragraph style' the text box reverted back to normal!
I'm also having the same problem in my photoshop cs6, no fix yet but a partial solve which might work, (my paragraph tab looks identical to yours too)..what I do is this. I highlight the offending text, go up to the menu at the top of the screen, go to 'type' then scroll down to 'language options' then across to kashidas, click off kashidas. then go back to the same pane and choose 'left to right character direction.' it should then alter your text to normal.
It's very frustrating as I haven't found out how to fix this as a preference, but I'm still working on it. Hope it helps you anyway.
