I don't have PSE so I'm not sure if this will help, but you've waited a bit for someone to try to answer, and Photoshop and PSE are similar in function.

Is this with all text you try to use with PSE? Unless something has become corrupt, that would most likely be from  setting an All Caps global style—if you have such a feature, it would be found near the icons for Faux Bold and Faux Italic. Or it could be found in a menu. In Photoshop, it a "TT" icon.

Or if the problem is only with the type you're trying to use, the problem could be that there IS no lower case. That's very common, especially with display type.
If you can be a bit more specific about what you're doing, what font(s) you're trying to use, what version of PSE and what OS you're running, one of our PSE experts here may be able to give you better information.

Thank you for getting back to me.  I searched a long time for an answer to this in the forum without success.  But then I tried again using left-field search terms after sending this and finally found the fix.

I'm glad it's resolved. Since others read these threads, it could be helpful to them if you would be willing to say what the fix was—or what thread gave you the answer. Then when they search, your resolved issue will pop up and provide them with a possible solution.

Ok didn't know that - I am new to forums.  The fix is:  on the lower right side there is a ? then menu button then arrow.  Hit the menu button, it says reset tool and then the lower case works!
