All of a sudden I cannot change to different fonts when in text mod. All it does is flip quickly and return to the same font.I have never had this problem before. What should I do? I have Photoshop 8 and have used it for a long time. I have wonderful collage pictures with journaling for all my trips. Now this happens with changing fonts. I am stumped.

Howdy Marilee,

What operating systerm (WindowsXP, Win7, Mac 10.6, etc) are you running? What font are you having this problem with? Does you text include (from an English-speaker's perspective) unusual characters such as ç or ß or õ or ï or the like? Have you recently installed another application or OS update which could have updated the font (happens quite frequently)?

Thanks,
David
