When chosing the normal type tool and starting to write some text... usuallythe text is positioned nicely and I write from left to right.

Somehow this does not happen today, the text starts from the bottom right cornor and is upside down.

I am not using type on a path, this is when using the standard text tool.

  • Is it with all fonts or only this one? can you rotate it back? does it happen in all illustrator files or only this one? is it a text box or just text?
