Keyboard symbols not working in type tool.

Jul 27, 2012 10:38 AM

I can't insert certain symbols with the text tool. When I type "&" it inserts a "/" and when I type "/" it inserts a "-". I know for a fact it's not my keyboard because it works in any other text editor or text field. Is this just some new weird setting in photoshop cs6?

    What version of Photoshop is it the same in every Font?

    If so try resetting your Photoshop Preferences.

    Hello, are you using a localized (non-english) os or version of Photoshop?

    did you try to reset the type tool by right-clicking on the text presets icon on the option bar (the first icon on the left side of the option bar)
