Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Resetting the Character panel, part of Photoshop for Designers: Type Essentials.
This is just a cautionary tale about resetting the Character panel.…When you come to input some type--…I've chosen my Type tool and I'm just going to click to make some point type--…what you get, these options reflect what you were last doing.…You could get some rather interesting surprises if you start typing in and you…weren't expecting that.…So what you might want to it is just to set things back to a level playing field,…before you start typing in your type, come to the Character panel and from the panel…menu, you can choose Reset Character, and that's just going to set things…back to their default Myriad Pro, Regular 12 point, Auto-Leading.…
So you are just starting with your plain vanilla type, and then you can take it…in whatever direction you want to from there.…
