Do you have any third party plugins? Have you tried disabling them?
What version of Photoshop are you using? Have you downloaded and installed all the updates?
No third party plugins.
I'm running CS4 (11.0.2)
This may have existed for a while since I do virtually all text in InDesign.
Can't imagine a setting that would do this.
Normally if there's a little glitch I just R&R my preferences... but this time it didn't work.
Chris... I just trashed Photoshop's preferences and settings on a backup of ML and it's working fine again.
Oh well... looks like I'm going to have to do the same on my primary system and reset everything.
At least it's working <g>
Thanks for the post.
Turns out that trashing the com.adobe.Photoshop.plist didn't correct it, but deleting the Adobe Photoshop CS4 Prefs.psp file did... which is why the previous attempts failed.
There's more to it than deleting one or two files:
To re-create the preferences files for Photoshop, start the application while holding down Ctrl+Alt+Shift (Windows) or Command+Option+Shift (Mac OS). Then, click Yes to the message, "Delete the Adobe Photoshop Settings file?"
Important: Apple made the user library folder hidden by default with the release of Mac OS X 10.7. If you need access to files in the hidden library folder to perform Adobe-related troubleshooting, see How to access hidden user library files.
