Hey All,

Working in photoshop, trying to use the text tool by creating a text box and imputing text. When ever I am selected on the text box the text seems to be fine and appears normal. Whenever I select off of the box, half of the text disappears. 

I have attached two photos to try ad explain the situtation a little bit better. Hopefully that helps.

Thanks for any ideas.

Howdy Lorand,

What version of Photoshop are you using?  On which OS?  And do you see this problem with all fonts or just a particular one?  Do you see this problem reliably?

Thanks,
David

Hey David,

Thank you for the reply. We are using Mac OSX El Captain. Photoshop CC. And it is generally happening to most fonts. We see this problem on really only one computer in a whole classroom of computers. 

Thanks again,
Lorand.

Hmmm...odd.  My first reaction would be to make sure that the application and system font caches for that one computer are still good.  Here are the steps: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/troubleshoot-fonts-photoshop-cs5.html

If that does NOT solve your problem, then I would start trying to figure out what about that one computer is different from all the other ones.  It might be something as simple as a single (trashy) font installed.

Feel free to ping me if you have further questions,
Thanks,
David
