Text tool is eradic

Post by wcw7398 »

When entering text (not in a bounding box) the text turns sideways if I hit the enter key. If I don't hut the enter key it starts entering characters vertically.

The only clue I have is that it began happening after I hit the mouse button to switch fonts, though I don't remember which font I switched to. It will only accept a few characters before misbehaving. I have closed the program and started with a new new file, but still no luck. Any thoughts?

Check that the font you are using doesn't have an @ at the front of it. Those fonts are designed to be vertical. Switch to a font without the @ and all should be good again.
