I am having problem to type the text using text tool. I have selected 500x100px size image Text size coming some strange no, even I change the text size its not typing any thing. I have tried uninstalling and re installing PS and it works only once then I have same problem.
see the text size in image below
see the dots only when typing nothing else.
Check the image size, and see what the units are. What often happens is we forget that size is set to a linear unit like Inches, and we dial in a size thinking it is in pixels. At 300dpi a 1000 x 1000 image is going to be huge. If type is set top pixels, then it tends to get lost.
Try a new Type layer, but specify a linear unit by typing in (for inch) or pt or mm.
Alsop look at Preference units. I suspect that Rulers might be in Inches. I like to to use pixels, but YMMV (it's a while since I last used that olde worlde internet short hand )
Thanks for your reply.
I have checked image size and change the preference for Units & Rulers, restarted PS but still having same issue.
it is absolutly correct ,yesterday i decresed the size of imag and today my type tool was not working ,your answer helped me to remine what i have done and what was the problem ...thx dear:)
I notice the number --21474836 in the.font size There have been a few reports of that problem.
Try the following:
1. Reset the text tool
If that does not work
2. Reset Preferences.
Go to Preferences >General >then click reset preferences on quit. Then click OK and close and restart Photoshop.
Thanks, Davescm! Resetting preferences did the trick.
The first solution worked perfectly for me.
Oh my, I had this problem for weeks and I couldn't solve it.
