Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Entering and selecting paragraph type, part of Photoshop for Designers: Type Essentials.

But before I do so, you might just…want to check what are the type options, because you can sometimes get some…rather unpredictable results, because the font and the size and the leading…will all be inherited from whatever the previous user was doing, or whatever you…as the previous user were doing.…
