For this installment of Photoshop for Designers, Nigel French explains the fundamentals of working with type in Photoshop, distinguishing when it is appropriate to set type in Photoshop rather than InDesign or Illustrator and what makes Photoshop unique for certain type treatments. This course demonstrates essential techniques, such as entering and editing text; interacting with type layers; and adjusting the color, transparency, character and paragraph formatting of type.
Every time you create a piece of paragraph type by choosing your Type tool and clicking and dragging with your Type tool to create a type area, then when you start typing, the format options you get are going to be those that were last used. And this might not be a problem at all, but it might lead to some nasty surprises. So in this case, it's fine. It's not really anything I am too worried about. Nothing that can't be fixed, certainly. But just in case you want to set things back to a level playing field, you might consider coming to the Paragraph panel and from the Panel menu, just choosing Reset Paragraph.
And that's going to set all of your indentations, your alignment, your auto leading value and all of the rest of it, all those things that may have been changed by yourself, or by somebody else.
