Hi,
I'm using Adobe Photoshop 22.4.2 on Windows 10 64bits. I noticed an issue with the text layer. When editing the text and pressing Enter (text one or number one), Photoshop is validating the text edit on my layer and not performing a carriage return as it should do by default. I tried several shortcuts combinaisons, without being able to perform a text carriage return in the app. I tested on Adobe Illustrator and it's working correctly as expected.

I uninstalled, downgraded to v22.0, reset the user preferences, all without success. I tested on my mac, same version and it's working fine. The issue is only with the version I have on Windows.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Pierre

Hi

The first thing to ask is which Enter you are using — the one on the alphabetic keypad or the one on the numeric keypad, as they are not the same. Don't use the Numeric keypad Enter.

 

On your Mac you will use Return and not numeric keypad Enter.

Hi Jane,

 

Thanks for the tip. However, Photoshop is not behaving as default by conducting a carriage return in the text paragraph block when using the alphabetic keyboad on my Windows version. As I said, on the same laptop, it's working correctly with Adobe Illustrator.

I also checked that no other third party software might "geopardize" the shortcuts.

Hi @Pierre-Eliott - Dalet 

 

Here are a couple of things to try:

 

  • Can you look in Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts to see if the shortcut for a Enter got reassigned to accept the Text edit instead of start a new paragraph?
  • Are the Keyboard Shortcuts using the Default set or does it say (modified)?
  • As a temporary workaround and for testing purposes, does Shift+Enter (line break) work?
  • Try resetting the Type tool: right-click the Type tool in the options bar (not Tools panel) and Reset.

 

Also, it's hard to see: are you clicking to create Point text or dragging first to create Area text? Try both to see if Enter works with either.

 

As a last resort, when PS acts flaky, and this qualifies, then you need to reset Preferences after backing up customization: 

Prefs > General > Reset Preferences on Quit.
