Font stuck as italic even though it is not set as such...

I am using photoshop 7.0.  Whenever I edit an existing image or create a new one I can only use an italic font.  It doesn't matter what I change the font to or the style the font stays the same and in italic.  Anyone ever have this happen before?  How can I stop it?  Help....

Possibly you have faux italics turned on in your Character pallet.  To view that Pallette, go to Window>Character.  Make sure there is a checkmark next to Character and click it if there's not.  Along the bottom of that pallette is a series of the letter "T".  One is italic.  If it looks like a pushed-in button, there is your problem.  Just turn it off by clicking it.

The Character pallet sometimes gets lost behind other pallets.  It sometimes pops up slid off the side of the window, too.  If you can't find it, drag other palettes around until it shows up (IF the checkmark is on next to its name under the Window menu across the top).
