Hello! I downloaded a few free fonts yesterday. Today I went into PE 11, and now whenever I try and use the Text tool, I get HUGE character spacing in my words. This happens with every font (not just the new ones) in every size, but only in PS. The spacing between each letter is so big that I can't use the program again until I figure out how to fix it. I have deleted all the fonts that I downloaded, uninstalled & reinstalled PE, but it is still happening. How do I get my character spacing back to normal?? Thanks!!

You could reset the preferences, or you could take a look at the settings for the text tool and see which one was changed and you might have missed.

Chris, you are amazing!!! I just had to reset the preferences and that fixed it! (Can you tell I'm not very good with computers? :) )

Thank you so much! You made my day. :)
