    Font ? for Elements 13

    tarak9633391

      I have photoshop elements 13 and have installed it on 2 computers at home.  My daughters computer, the fonts work fine. My computer, the fonts don't kern, spacing between each letter, correctly.  We have the same computer and I have looked at everything to see if it is the same and they are.  I have even uninstalled and reinstalled the program.  Can anyone help me know where to look to change my settings so that the fonts kern correctly?

          The option of kerning is not available in Elements, only in the full Photoshop or in Elements with external add-ons (Elements+ for instance). So there should be no difference between computers.

          A possible explanation would be that in one or both computer, the menu Edit >> preference >> type has 'show asian text option' enabled.

          That option will allow to 'compress' the space between letters.

          Edit:

          Did you 'reset' the text tool to default in both computers? (the icon for the menu of text tools options in on the top right of the tool panel).

            When I show asian text option enabled, nothing changes.  Can you explain more of how to "reset" the text tool to default? I am not seeing where I need to change that. Thanks.

              I just found how to reset the font to default. Cannot say thank you enough, that worked.  I have been trying to figure this out for months.
