I have tried both text engine options (East Asian, and Middle Eastern) and it still types backwards. 

This just started a few days ago but the text would come out correctly.  However today it is not it is still backwards when I hit confirm. 

I did a screenshot to show you, it is totally messed up.  There are spaces between characters that should not be there.  The type is backwards if you start with a number.   The commas, and quotes are not where they should be (yet they were typed in correctly).

Please help, I don't know if I did something or if it is PS.

I am on Windows 10 using PS CC 2019 and it has the latest update. Also Use Graphics Processor is unchecked. 

Thanks in advance.

Check out my two videos on the topic: and  I'd be willing to bet cash that'll fix you up.

Have a great one,
