When typing numbers or punctuation on Photoshop CS6, they always glitch and go back to the beginning of the sentence and can't be made to go after the letters. I can't think of anything that's wrong. Please help!
Please explain in more detail.
Are Photoshop and OS fully updated and have you performed the usual trouble-shooting routines (trashing prefs by keeping command-alt-shift/ctrl-alt-shift pressed while starting Photoshop after making sure all customized presets like Actions, Patterns, Brushes etc. have been saved and making a note of the Preferences you’ve changed, 3rd party plug-ins deactivation, system maintenance, cleaning caches, font validation, etc.)?
Right. If I was trying to write "The year 1995", when typing the first number, it would automatically go to the front of the text and look like "1995 The year". The same rules apply for any punctuation I use at the end of sentences.
Also, if I was trying to highlight all of the text, what would be highlighted would either be "1995", "The year" or the space inbetween "1995" and "The". It isn't possible to highlight every word in the text. Another thing is that the blinking line where the text should type is always at the beginning of the text unless I hold the right arrow key.
Please ask any questions.
That happens when using the Type Tool to create Point Type and Paragraph Type both?
Have you trashed the prefs yet?
You could also try checking out:
"That happens when using the Type Tool to create Point Type and Paragraph Type both?"
"Have you trashed the prefs yet?"
I just did so but it came to no avail.
I'll try the more time cosuming things on the list later when I have more time but nothing worked yet.
"did you reset the type tool (right-click the tool on the option bar)"
No, but I just did and it didn't work.
"Does it happen with all fonts, or just one?"
Something I just noticed was when the text starts centred on the right, the blinking line that should be telling me where my text will be coming up moves backwards when I press the spacebar; then when backspacing, the line goes fowards.
Sorry if that last sentence didn't make sense...it's early.
I still have the problem that all punctuation is appearing on the left side of my text. What makes most of my documents useless.
Recreating them from scratch is NOT an option due to high complexity.
I am Cloud member and Photoshop is up to date.
What is the solution to fix that problem now?
Nothing helped yet.
Punctuation always appears on the left side instead after text.
What's also strange is that after deleting the preferences, creating a new document and writing text - the text is by default aligned right instead left.
Does that mean my documents, which I have built up over years/months, are irreversibly skrewed?
