    How do I fix my text function?

    BeckyLou52 Level 1

      I am able to select the function and draw my desired box, but then when i go to type the actual text it is like each letter is a different short cut. Different selections start being made within the program like different layers being selected, new views, different functions being opened. I have already upgraded to the most recent Fireworks and still no changes. Please help me with this

          Windows or Mac? And does it happen with other type faces as well?


          If you work on a Mac, be sure to turn of Spotify, and close Chrome completely. These are known to be incompatible on newer Macs when running Fireworks.

            I am using a Windows computer.

            I believe you are asking me if this issue happens when I am using othe programs' type options; and no, it does not happen with any other program but Fireworks. I almost always close every oter program while using Fireworks, unless I need to find something during a project.


            I do want to say, Thank you for your speedy response. I was away and unable to see it until now.

              Mac Location:[User]/Library/Preferences/Adobe Fireworks CS4/en/Fireworks Preferences


              Select the file and delete it.



              First: uninstall all copies of Fireworks and


              Second: reinstall Fireworks so that it is at it's "base state" and then


              Third: update
