Basically, I cannot get an _ where I want it.
The underscore and the text after where I tried to type it, jumps to the beginning of the line.
Very weird.

Edit: Even if I try to paste "894781_red-cw", I get "red-cw_894781"

It’s happened When you use right to left language settings in left to right language
I think you need to change it in the preferences ..
Not sure

Looks like switching Prefs > Type > 'Text engine options' from 'Middle Eastern & South Asian' to 'East Asian' and back (quit PS in between) solved the issue.

Thanks!

Hmm. Looks like that didn't work after all. Cannot use _ at all.

If I use ) , . or a space, they get placed at the front of the text, and only jumps to the correct spot as I type more characters.

No idea what's going on here and what caused it to work for a short while.

(All this on a MacPro 5.1 running Sierra, BTW)
