>A weird Photoshop problem: using the type tool, I can only produce type in large-and-small-caps, as opposed to upper and lower case. I can't generate any lowercase text.
Did you check to see that you did not inadvertently select the All Caps option from the flyout menu in Text mode (the one to the right of the Character and Paragraph tabs). Or, the shortcut shift-command-K, which does the same thing?
Edited for typo
sounds like he has the small caps checked in the character panel.
Gentlemen, thank you very much for the tips. They have solved the problem. I need to rebuild or replace my user identity, clearly, but for the moment, I was totally unaware of the powers of the flyout menu on the Character panel, and your tips have taken care of the problem. Since, I have noticed, the problem occasionally mutates on the fly, i.e., while in use, it's probably due to a fumbled KB combination, and the corrupted user ID. Thanks for the help.
PS-No scary organ music; more appropriate would be the Three Stooges' "Wah-wah-waaaah".
