I have to keep re-setting my Character language box to English: USA. Even in the middle of a single document it will switch itself over to French or Spanish or some other language. What do I have to do to make it ALWAYS stay on English: USA ?
It looks to me as if this question was first addressed over NINE years ago. There was no satisfactory answer then, and I can't find where it has been addressed since then.
I'm on PSCC. iMac_macOS Mojave 10.14.2 and region preference is set to United States.
Sorry that the Spell check in Photoshop keeps reverting back to languages other than US English.
This could be something related to a bad or corrupt app preferences. Could you please restore Photoshop app preferences to default and let us know if the issue still persists?
Please refer this article for instructions on how to restore Photoshop preferences: Preferences in Photoshop
Let us know if that helps.
I have this same issue. I've tried all suggestions to change the language and it keeps going back to French. Is there a resolution yet. I can't use spell check.
Mine kept going to Spanish. I had to select and highlight the text that I had originally typed and then change each one to English. It finally worked after that. This may be something to do whenever you type your first words in a new project so that it can continue keeping everything in English. That was my only fix. (I'm on CS5).
Thanks for the information. I'm using Photoshop CC. But I was able to figure what happened. In my case, I placed and purchased a graphic from Adobe stock via the libraries panel. For some reason, that image had a language associated with it. When I rasterized the image (no longer a smart layer) the problem disappeared. Hope that helps someone.
this is a lame solution man. This bug tests your patience and you want all preferences to be reset? You don't know if this works, you don't care if does. If it doesn't and all preferences are reset then what do you suggest we do?
The language that spell-check uses is a Character-Level attribute. It's possible and common to have more than one language being checked in a single document when the document is bi- or tri-lingual, for instance. If that is not your intent, then select all text layers with the Character pallet open. The language field will read: Multiple. Change it there to your intended language.
We're talking about here how to set the Default so it stays.
Thank you, that really helped me
