My text icon is sloping downwards & won't let me insert a text frame.
Something strange has happned with my settings & I am unable to get them back to normal.
Anyone know how I can?
Click on that sloping text icon with the mouse for 2-3 second , a cascading windows will come up , choose the first tool in it i.e. Text Tool
Just so you know what you had, the "sloping" tool is the text on a path tool. You never know when you might want to add type along a path rather than in a frame, and that's the tool that does it.
Even faster is to opt/alt click any tool that has a little rectangle in the lower right corner.
