Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Resetting the Paragraph panel, part of Photoshop for Designers: Type Essentials.
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.…
