    Why is my text in AE italic, even though I've selected regular?

      I have a new composition in After Effects with a two layers; a video for the background and a new text layer. The text in the layer is slanted to the right (just like I had set it to italics), even though I've set it to regular. If I set it to italic, it slants even more. I can't figure out what is up with this. I have italic text in a different composition in the project, but I created this text layer from scratch; I didn't copy and paste it. Is it just a quirk?

      Tell me that text isn't italicized. However, the font is Arial, and it is set to regular. I did try highlighting and changing it several times, created a new layer, and even different fonts, all with no success.
