Photoshop text tool adds punctuation to the beginning of text

How to make punctuation go to end or sentence in photoshop CC? if I type, “test!” the result will be “!test”. How can I fix this for version CC? everything I found seems to be for cs6 or another version.




  1. Chosen as BEST ANSWER

    I had to go to Edit - Preferences Type... - Middle and South Asian - "OK" - and restarted photoshop. Then I went to Type - Language options - choose Middle Eastern Features (for some reason it was on Default here but still Middle Eastern under preferences. I don't know why I had to do it twice.) and then Type - Language options - choose left - to - right character direction and voila! my punctuation stays to the right of my text. I'm shocked this wasn't set by default BUT once i did change the settings the normal P for paragraph symbol reappeared in the paragraph panel.

  2. Actually, all I did was change the settings for Language options—paragraph and clicked on the paragraph symbol pointed to the right and it was fixed.

  3. Been using Pshop forever. Suddenly, my punctuation was positioning itself at the left of the sentence and my quote marks were backwards. I have no idea how this issue started, but the fix for me was simply: (menu bar) Type>Language Options>Left to Right Character Direction.
