What exactly happens when you type text?
Did you create point text, or drag out a text box?
Did you install the Photoshop 2015.1 update?

Open NEW of any size with WHITEbackground
Pick up type tool T (horizontal) and draw text box with dots - so far no problem
Set curser within the box and type any characters (originally used Japanese font)
The curser stays where it is and never moves to the right (horizontally)
Then give up ...
Tried on other files(previously created) with no success
Now trying to reset preference file and see what happens

Thanks

Hmm, sounds like one of the character palette values was set to something you didn't expect. Yes, resetting the tool or preferences should fix it.

Many thanks! It worked fine by resetting preference file!
