    Major type engine problems

    cobaltgreen Level 1

      It has recently become impossible to control the type cursor in Photoshop (also Illustrator and InDesign) so that I cannot select anything with any accuracy.


      To begin with nothing on the first line of text can be selected at all and deeper into the text it is not possible to select a singe line of text or a single word or letter. The cursor

      simply selects in a totally erratic way selecting blocks of text.


      Therefore it is not possible to edit any text. This is an urgent problem.


      I have no idea why this is so or how to correct it.



      Please help.



      Thank for your consideration,

          Same standard answer as always: You have a "bad" font somewhere in there and need to weed out your font collection until you find the culprit. If you use a font manager, likewise clean outs its font lists and otehr organizational stuff or (tremporarily) turn it off. Cures such problems 99% of the time.
