CS4 | Windows 10
I am making a digital scrapbook page and I am trying to make a work path using the pen tool so I can type text around the photos.
I can make the work path but as soon as I click on the type tool to insert text the program gets 'hung up' and I get a 'not responding' error message and I have to shut down the program.
I have reboot the computer and I have even tried uninstalling the program and reinstalling it with no success.
I am not sure if I am posting this in the right place but I can't seem to find a 'Photoshop Help' forum.
Any help provided would be very much appreciated!
It could be any of several things causing your problem.
What operating system are you using?
What Photoshop version?
First thing would be to troubleshoot your fonts:
It could be an operating system problem. I only know Windows, so if you are a Windows user, run the System File Checker
If this only happens when you have a work path or shape layer selected, then it might be worth resetting the Type tool
Or resetting Preferences. Note that reinstalling Photoshop does not overwrite the Preferences file, so wouldn't fix any problems within it.
I am running Windows10 and CS4.
Thanks for your suggestions however it is still not working. I tried resetting the type tool like you suggested and now as soon as I click on the type tool I get the 'not responding' error.
Would an newer version of CS work or would my preferences stay?
Thanks for your help.
