I used to have a text tool box?????

When using Photoshop Elements 8, I used to double click on my text and a white text "tool box" would open where I could preview the different fonts, change the opacity, etc.  Since my computer crashed and I had to reinstall PSE8 I no longer have this function.  I used it all of the time, anyone know if it was changed with a recent update?

    Try resetting the preferences:

     

    Hold down the Alt + Ctrl + Shift(Windows) or Opt + Cmd + Shift (Mac) keys as you click on the icon to open Elements. When asked if you want to delete the settings file, say yes.

    Respectfully suggest that prior to resetting preferences, access the type tool. On the option bar, top left, there is a little arrow. Click on that, and reset the tool.. If that does not fix it, reset preferences.

    Are you talking about the elements editor or organizer?

    Highlight the name of the font in the type tool's option bar, then use the arrow keys on the keyboard to scroll through the system fonts.

    I'm a little confused about what you describe.

    This is what i see in the pse 8 editor when i double click on a text layer in the layers panel.

    Your version was different?

    FWIW, I have never seen nor heard of what you're describing, in any version of PSE. Are you sure it was PSE and not PRE or some other program?

    Yeah, it sounds like PaintShop Pro.

    Does it work for you now if you adhere to the posted directions?
