Im unsure how to rectify this problem, and I'm also unsure as to what exactly made it do this but I'll explain it anyway.
In Illustrator when I make a new text box, instead of being a flat rectangle/square and expanding on the x and y axis, my text box begins "diamond like" and expands on a 45 degree angle to what it should be. The text too, when typed, is on the same 45 degree angle. When I spin the text box back to 0 degrees like it should be on default, the text box moves cleanly to 0 degrees but the text remains on a 45 degree angle.
Am I doing something simply idiotic or is there some kind of problem with my Illustrator? All the settings I could find for type seem to be on default.
Any help would be amazing!
While I couldn't find the exact cause of the problem I deleted the AIPrefs file under eng_GB folder (not eng_US) and it has fixed everything seemingly
Probably, preference corruption has changed the Edit>Preferences>General>Constrain Angle to 45 degrees, and your deleting the preferences has reinstalled the 0 degree(s) default.
