I've been using CS2 and all of a sudden I opened it the other day and when I used the type tool, nothing actually appeared, I tried it several times on different psd's, but nothing! I did a clean install and still got the same thing, so I decided to downgrade to Photoshop 7.0, but now when I use the type tool all I get is hyphen type characters for everything I type!!

It's driving me insane!!

Hope someone can help.

Thanks

Chris

Im sure your font in Photoshop is not set to Wingdings or Webdings or anyother such font? ;)

anywayz, are you using Language Bar ?
if so just check out if nothing is changed there and you are using your Default Language?
other thing is, try to boot in safemode and check there for the problem, if same thing then try to change your keyboard
post back the results.

Thanks for the quick response, it seems the vertical scale was set to 7% which made all the characters look like that, I've set it to 100% and all is well!

Cheers
