Wrapping text in a paragraph

I'm trying to simply type a paragraph in PSE 18. When I click on the type tool, I drag a box and I begin typing. In the past, it automatically wrapped and went down to the next line and I just continued typing. But now when I begin typing, it will actually go outside the box and will not continue on the next line. I believe there's a setting somewhere that says "no break" but I can't find it in Elements 18.

Hi,

Which operating system are you running on?

I'm using Windows 10 and the text tool appears to work correctly - i.e. uses word wrap.

Which mode are you in (Quick/Expert)?

Are you using the default font or some other font?

Have you tried reseting the type tool?

I'm on a Mac OS Sierra. I was in the Expert but when you mentioned Quick, I thought I'd give it a try - and it worked! It used word wrap. I was using one of the default fonts. I tried Expert again, reseting the type tool and now that works as well. Thanks so much!

Hi Janice,

I'm glad that you managed to get it working again. Very occasionally, a tool may stop working as it should and in most cases a tool reset will get it working again.

Thanks for letting us know.

I just loaded Photoshop Elements 2020 and I cannot get type to wrap.  It's very frustrating.  I tried switching to Quick -- no luck.  Tried resetting type tool -- no luck.  Any additional ideas?

Try resetting preferences to default. Go to Edit menu>Preferences>General and reset on next launch.
