Photoshop Typing Backwards After Hitting Spacebar [FIX]

Photoshop type tool is very powerful. If you have used it before, sometimes the type tool plays up a bit. A similar thing happened to me recently. Every time I press the spacebar, the type cursor will go to the front, and I could not space my words at all in photoshop. I did not change any settings that I remember, that was very frustrating(with an easy fix).

The issue I created because of the type tool’s text engine option selected to “Middle Eastern.”

Let me show you how to change this and solve the issue.

  1. Open photoshop and open preferences.
    Edit > Preferences > Type
  2. Now under the “Choose Text Engine Options,” “Middle Eastern” is selected if every time your press spacebar in type tool your cursor moves to the front.
  3. Click on the radio button that says “East Asian.”
  4. Restart Photoshop and try hitting the spacebar in the text tool, you should be able to insert a space.
