When I draw a text box in Photoshop cc 2019, the text box is filled with text in a foreign language (not English).  The text box has not done this in the past.  I have tried resetting the Horizontal Type Tool and that did not fix the problem.

It sounds like that's the placeholder text (lorem ipsum). If you want to turn it off, go to Edit > Preferences > Type... and uncheck Fill new type layers with placeholder text.

I'm having the same issue but I'm using Photoshop on IPad Pro 2020 and am not seeing that option. Also when I delete the text it autofills again😩

Hi,

As Myra said, it can be turned off. Otherwise, the text is selected, so just start typing to replace the text or press delete and then start typing.

It’s the Lorem ipsum dolor dummy text that you are seeing:

Lorem ipsum - Wikipedia

I found on my mac  click Photoshop CC -> preferences -> tools -> TYPE -- under type options - uncheck -fill new type layers with placeholder text.

I don't know why the headings/directions are different but this is what my mac shows to get to the result of removing the text Lorem Ipsum.... from automatically showing up when using the horizontal text tool.
