punctuation problem with PS prefs set correctly to East Asia

I posted this problem here, but no one has been able to help, and I was encouraged to post in this forum.

Long story short, my PS Type Preferences settings are set to the usual "East Asia", but when I type something like "Something here:" the ":" gets added to the front of the line, like so: ":Something here". When I type any character or number after the ":", everything moves back to where it should be (ie. "Something here:7"). A *space* after ":" doesn't fix it unless I also type a character/number after the *space*.

So, I can't end a line with any punctuation without another character following it at some point. So far none of these work, plus any others I'm sure: : ( ) " ? , .

This first started happening "randomly" in PS CS6 on my old laptop, and then just started happening on my brand new laptop in PS CC. The only thing I can think might be the problem is that I'm working in a copy of a template file I downloaded online. Maybe the user who created it had some weird, foreign type settings applied to the file? Although, this wasn't happening when I first started working in the file, only recently. Either way, I don't know where to start with changing file-specific type settings, if any exist.

Any ideas?
