When typing numbers or punctuation on Photoshop CS6, they always glitch and go back to the beginning of the sentence and can't be made to go after the letters. I can't think of anything that's wrong. Please help!
Highlight your text and select 'Paragraph'.
Select the icon in the very top right corner so a menu pops open.
Adobe Single-line Composer
Right-to-Left Paragraph Direction
That should do it!
My photoshop, also cloud just started this today and NOTHING seems to work. I just tried this trick...still doing it.
I use CC 14.0 and I can't seem to figure out the type tool. it types right to left and i tried all the solutions above. In the paragraph panel there's no left to right or right to left option and all the other options that may work out for me are greyed out and i can't select them.
What should I do next?
You have your Text Engine in Photoshop set to "Middle Eastern".
Go back to Photoshop Preferences and change the Type Engine Option to "East Asian" (don't ask me why Adobe has chosen that terminology ).
Thanks a lot station_two!! This fixed my issue but now I have a problem with symbols like " or } as they seem to move to the begining of the line randomly.
I've been browsing and looking for an answer everywhere in order to fix my problems.
I think I've found a solution, but just to clarify, this was my problem:
If I was to type the this:
Cat, dog and mouse were smoking it all up.
The sentence would come out, like this:
.,Cat dog and mouse were smoking it all up
Or something alike, anyway.
But I've fixed it with a click of a button, or two.
This is what you do:
NOTE: THIS DOES INCLUDE HAVING MIDDLE EASTERN SET, BUT ISN'T THE FIX ITSELF!
1. Go to 'Type' through the menu, or (preferences on mac) and make sure type set is set to Middle Eastern.
There, wasn't so hard, was it? =]
2. Now, do this:
5. This may set back and forth if you have a certain text layer selected, so make sure you're doing this independently of any layers.
Hope this helps.
I don't see that option in my photoshop CS6 (Version 13 x64), not Cloud. But, I am experiencing the same exact thing you mention. What are those buttons labeled. Any idea where I can find it in the non-Creative Cloud version of the software?
In order to get the option for "left to right" and "right to left" you have to click Type -> Language Options -> Middle Eastern Features and it will add a row of options to the Paragraph panel. This solved it for me.
Thank you very much, this helped me for the same problem
Thanks @xenil for the visuals and explanation - this fixed the issue for me
Thanks so much, Middle Eastern Features were correct so I followed your second option--clicking on the left r paragraph icon. AWESOME!!!
I completely forgot about this age-old post of mine somewhere. I'm glad someone re-posted it into this forum and that it helped some of you. I've not looked into any of it further so for those that this doesn't work, I'm sorry I have no clue. Just keep browsing forums I suppose.
THANK YOU!!! Finally fixed it!!! Been driving me nuts for a month!! Been inserting punctuation in it's own text box to bypass!!
This answer should be all the way upvoted!!
yes this worked!!!!!
Fuuuuuuukccccc that solved my problem. Cheers dude
I had the same problem and this is the answer that worked for me.
I've got the solution:
- Type > Panels > Paragraph Styles Panel.
- Create new (Create new paragraph style), the button left to the delete option.
- Double click on the new "Paragraph Style +1"
- Make the changes you want and save
- Use the new paragraph style ("Basic Paragraph" is the one making problem)
This actually worked for me. I dont know why adobe doesnt let you delete the Basic style. Dumb
Carl4's link did the trick. Nothing else in this thread worked. Thanks Carl!
Yes! Carl's explanation worked! TY so much. How awful of Adobe to release it this way --even on the latest upgrade it isn't fixed. Ridiculous.
Looks like this option is gone in cc 2014
I had this problem too and I just selected
Type > Language Options > Left-to-right Character Direction.
Hope this helps.
This worked for mine, thanks a bunch.
