Photoshop 7 -- Type Tool Stopped Working

Q: Photoshop 7 -- Type Tool Stopped Working

Hello everyone, and thanks in advance.

Using Photoshop 7.01 for Windows, I cannot do now what I have done hundreds of times before: add Type to an image.

Old images with type can be edited with no problem. But with all new files created, the type does not appear on the image. (I have been in the RGB mode).

The only possible cause of the problem (that I can think of) is that I have been using InDesign recently, and perhaps (in InDesign) I have changed the color mode in repsonse to a dialogue box.

I'm perplexed and anxious-- I need my Type Tool to work!.

Suggestions deeply appreciated.


Preferred Solution: Photoshop 7 -- Type Tool Stopped Working

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Photoshop 7 -- Type Tool Stopped Working

Iíve never had InDesign mess with my PS settings.

In the toolbar are the little boxes arranged with the black box upper left and the white box lower right? Or is the type color you have selected in the upper left box. If the white is in the upper left you print white. The two tiny boxes below and to the left will switch it back if you just want black and white. The double arrows above and to the right will swap the background and foreground.

I hope it is as simple as that.

I hope this is not a silly question. I'm using Adobe Photoshop Elements 2.0 It came with a scanner and the software is fine for what I want. I was doing some extensive repairs of some old negs with the clone stamp, then it suddenly stopped working. There were no error messages; it just stopped copying. I can't find anything about this, and any comments an suggestions would welcome.

Recently while I am working with Photoshop (CS4 64-bit) the window appears saying "Photoshop has stopped working". Once the program crashes I can't re-open it because the same "stopped working" windows appears on start-up. I haven't been using any other software but the same problem twice appeared with MS Word.
I bought computer 2 weeks ago so I don't want to re-install Windows after such short time.

This problem seems to appear after I installed Wacom Intuos 4 tablet. I tried to uninstall Wacom drivers and install older ones but it didn't seem to have effect or I didn't uninstall all Wacom drivers. I is hard to say coz Device manager often doesn't show all Wacom drivers installed.

Do you have any suggestions to this problem?

A:Photoshop CS4 stopped working

If this problem is happening with Word and now CS4 that's an indication with an impending problem with the system. If the system is still under warranty you might have the service department look it over.

By the way what version of Word are you using?

Also can you provide us some system specs?

So I finally get my new computer in, which is running on my new 64-bit Vista. I install my favorite program, Photoshop CS3, and decide to try it out a bit. It works just fine. Then I decide to install my tablet which comes included with all my photoshop plug-ins.

This is where everything gets awesome. As I'm starting back up Photoshop I get hit with this.

If you notice, it freezes right as the plug-ins are being put in. I found out that the life-ruining box invading my startup is called DEP. So I tried to disable it going through the command prompt. Everything happened the way it was supposed to happen. I got some sort of success message, and when I checked the DEP status it said that it was disabled. So I try to start up photoshop again. Still, it pops up. I restart my computer after disabling it again. Still, it pops up. If I'm about to hear that I can't use Photoshop with plug-ins because of this 64-bit crap, I'll send my computer back right now.

Is there anything I can possibly do to get this to work?

Hello CouldBeJesus,

Welcome to the forums.

You can disable DEP for a particular program by going to the start menu/control panel (classic view). Click on 'advanced system settings'. Under 'Performance' click settings. 'Data Execution Prevention' tab. There is a warning in the help files that this 'could' allow a virus to enter the computer through the program. It also suggests looking for an update to your program before disabling. Hope it works.

I have a Pentium 4 3Ghz with 1 MB ram running XP SP2.

I had loaded Adobe Photoshop 5.0 from an original CD a few months ago. It used to
work well. As of a few week's ago, it does not work. It shows a message "Unable
to load PSUT9532.dll Photoshp will not be able to support 16bit plu-ins. Continue
launching Y/N? If I tried to continue, it puts up a blank window and frees. The
strange thing is psut9532.dll exists in the program files/ adobe photoshop directory.

I uninstalled the program. When I used the CD now to re-install, it does not work.
The set-up.exe does not run at all.

The issue is repeatable on two computers I have that run XP. One other computer
I have with Windows ME, adobe photoshop 5.0 runs fine and the set-up CD loads fine

My theory is that there was an recent update to XP lately that caused this incompatibility?
Out of ideas and confused! I would like to photo editing back without spending a
lot for an upgrade.

A:PhotoShop 5.0 stopped working with XP

I would download a good copy of the DLL and replace all instances of it on your computer after a full search. Keep the old ones in the recycle bin so you at least can trace where they came from and restore them if other programs have problems. There are many sites like this: http://www.dlldump.com/download-dll-files_new.php/dllfiles/P/Psut9532.dll/3.0.42/download.html

Windows has a sharing system for utility files like DLLs. It should be a simple matter of the first program that installs a particular file being the only repository and other programs share that one. It never seems to work exactly as I anticipate. Photoshop may or may not be using the one in the folder. And that DLL might or might not have been removed and reloaded when you uninstalled and reinstalled the program. Another approach is to uninstall, remove the Photoshop folder and then reinstall. That will probably put a good version of the DLL on the computer.

It would also seem that a DLL starting with ps would be used only for Photoshop. That is probably true but you can’t count on that either. Search didn’t’ find it on my C drive at all, so CS must be using a different method of running 16 bit.

2.Have you checked in Event Viewer?

To check for problems you need to do the following.

Type eventvwr in search and go to the windows log>application tab.
Look for errors that have red in the left hand column that say anything relating to the CURRENT problem.

Hours later when I needed to use Elements it would start but then just sit there forever and never fully load. This happened time and again even after rebooting. Finally I uninstalled Elements and tried to reinstall it. But when I click on the install button it just sits there. I have disabled Mcafee and still no luck. I've rebooted a number of times and still no luck. I'm running XP Home with all the latest updates and a gig of memory. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

Hey all, thanks ahead of time for taking a look!

I've had this problem with Adobe Photoshop Extended (CS4 Version 11.0) and Microsoft Paint for about a month now. Anytime I try to "save" or "save as" with either of these programs, Vista produces the "[Photoshop or Paint] has stopped working - Windows is checking for a solution" error. It then, after maybe 15 seconds or so, says "[Photoshop or Paint] has stopped working - A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available."

This happens when I try to save ANYTHING on either of these programs, but it is restricted to only these two programs. Everything else, including all Microsoft Office software and even irfanview, which is another image editing software, work flawlessly. I do not believe that I downloaded any software prior to this problem. I've searched all over the internet for a solution but I can only find people having trouble saving as JPGs, but I cannot save at all with these programs, normally I can find someone who has solved the same problem and I follow their steps but this has absolutely stumped me. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!!!!!

I know that some of these have no correlation to the actual issue, but I figured it's worth a shot. Here's all that I've tried to fix it -
-Reinstalled Photoshop
-Complete System Virus Scan via ESET NOD32 4.0.437.0

I noticed that there was no Intergrated Camera driver in the list, I then decided to install it manually. I was then met with a "Can't find the device, Abort install!"I have attempted to use FN+F6 to enable and disable the camera, even with restarts in between. I have also gone through the BIOS and enabled/disabled the camera to see if it would then detect it and nothing has worked.Has anyone else had an issue like this and been able to resolve it?

1) My 2 year old ACER Aspire 5 keyboard just stop working in a couple of capacities. First, the numbers on the 10 key wouldn't type at all. Checked Num Lock, fine, then tried to type numbers at top of keyboard, well, some typed the right number but most didn't or typed more than one number.

2) Ran Webroot Anti-spyware and Anti-Virus, clean. Then I shook my computer to see if any crumbs or foreign materials were throwing something off, clean. Took out battery, nada.

3) Restored computer to the day before any problems. Changed nothing. Pressed every key to see if something was stuck or key broken. None.

4) The Delete, Backspace, Enter and Space Bar do NOT work at all. So basically, the entire keyboard is not working due to something. If I type any one key, some of them type what I wanted but continue to type the letter or number until I log out of my Google Engine.

5) I have always had issues with the keyboard. I will be typing along and the cursor will randomly go back to previous sentences and start typing what I am currently typing. It is so annoying. Why is it hopping all over the place?

6) A computer major friend who teaches computer classes said to write to Google and maybe I would find others with similar problems. I found several "sticky keys" problems but none on point with none of the keys working or working properly. He suggested perhaps a Trojan Horse virus but my sweeps come up clean...

Hi, I recently upgraded my PC from Vista to Windows 7.

The update took a while, but so far it has been well worth it. Photoshop worked just fine on Vista when I used it, and so far it has worked perfectly fine on 7. On the other hand, I am stuck in a spot where I keep crashing it and have not found a work around. Now I am wondering if this is related to Windows 7 or something just specific to Photoshop(I have never got it to crash before).

I am a student taking a Photoshop class, so this isn't some hardcore project or anything. I am following a lesson straight out of Adobe's Photoshop CS4 Classroom in a book, book....

Specifically the lesson 9, where we take a smart object, rasterize it, then apply it to a vanishing point filter. It is on this step where I drag a flat image and Photoshop converts it to appear like it belongs on a box, that Photoshop freezes, and windows makes it close down with no other option.

I know I put some technical stuff about photoshop here and this is a windows forum. I just thought maybe someone here would be knowledgeable on both subjects.

If anyone has some suggestions on ways to fix this please let me know. I know I could just stop doing it, but maybe there are other people who reproduce this error or something.

Thanks, Nick

Hi. I recently purchased PS7. Prior to this, I used PS Elements. In Elements, there is a toolbar with the buttons for NEW, OPEN, UNDO, REDO (and a few others). Does anyone know a way to get a toolbar like this in PS7? I've been searching & searching & can't seem to find a way. (It's not a big deal, I know I can go into Edit>'whatever' or File>Open, but the toolbar was very convenient. )

I've just bought a new PC and have installed Photoshop CS on it. However, whenever I try using the Text tool, Photoshop just hangs and the program becomes unresponsive. The processor usage also increases looking at the Task Manager. I have to shut the program down before I can do anything else. The program ran fine on my old PC.

I've also tried an evaulation copy of Photoshop Elements 3 which has exactly the same problem.

On the new PC, I have now installed my old Photoshop 7 and this works fine!

I'm at a loss to know what to try next. Any advice would be appreciated. New PC is 3.4GHz Pentium 4 512Mb RAM. Old PC was AMD Athlon 1.4GHz 512Mb RAM.

I have no idea why that would happen. If you canít get help here I suggest you register at Adobeís Photoshop forum and ask. Technical support people from Adobe often answer, and you might be able to find a post where the problem has already been addressed: http://www.adobeforums.com/cgi-bin/[email protected]@.ee6b366

I think Im missing something simple here.
When I try to manually crop an image using the crop tool, instead of it letting me select the area, as I drag across horizontally, the tool also automatically drags vertically, so that I end up with a square to crop.
Ive not explained this very well, but I hope somebody understands what I mean.

How can I reset the tool so that I can manually select the area to crop.

About a week ago my clone tool stopped working. It will not copy ANY area and reproduce it at all. Is this a program issue or possibly my computer on over load. I have used it excessively, especially the clone tool. Has it finally given up on me????? I Am Concerned and I will need it very soon. Any ideas as to what is going on and how to make it work again?

I never wanted to have to use Vista; I hoped my PC would hold out until the new Windows version was available and had been on the market long enough to have most bugs worked out....but, my PC died and, of course, its replacement came with Vista. I was seriously considering erasing the whole thing and putting XP on it, but didn't do that for fear of creating more problems. I now have everything working very well with one exception.
My Photoshop 7.0 software displayed fine in XP. Installed with Vista, although the fonts on the file menu were fine, the fonts on the windows for tools, layers, history, colors, etc. were so small, they were nearly impossible to read. Initially, I had the resolution set at 1152 X 864. Now, I have the resolution set at 1024 x 768. It has made a little difference but not much. If I set the resolution any lower, not only do I lose resolution of my work, but all windows for display settings, etc. in Vista get too big to fit on the screen. I have gone back and forth with the resolution and font settings and have not been able to make the photoshop tool/window fonts reasonable. Not to mention that I'd much rather work with a higher resolution. Any help to be had out there? Thanks.

Hi, I'm using Photoshop 7.0.1 right now, after continuous failure to use CS4.

The problem is ever since CS4 was installed (which didn't even work)
my gradient tool acts as if I damaged one of the file.

I now have deleted CS4, deletec Photoshop 7 6 times and reinstalled but nothing has changed.

below is the sample picture of what happens when I use my gradient tool.

Is there a way to fix?
Thank you for spending your time on my question.

When I use the crop tool and specify a size, it also resizes my image. It didn't used to do this. How can I stop this from happening? I just want to preserve an aspect ratio, I don't want to resize my image.

I read Photoshop's help, and it seems to indicate that if I leave the resolution box empty, it won't resample the image... but I do have the box empty, and it's resampling it anyway.

I am trying to use the ellipse tool to select an oval from a photo. I am missing some simple step. The ellipse I choose turns out grey and I can not get the inverse. When I try, it says no pixels selected. I don't know how to respond to this. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

From the moment an image is opened in Photoshop CS3 the 'hand' icon appears regardless of which tool is chosen. No other tools work. The the image moves around guided by the 'hand' icon only. The 'hand' icon will not go away regardless of anything I try. I cannot do any work!

Okay, so I just got Photoshop CS5 the other day. I was working on editing a picture, and going to add text to it when my text tool stopped working. I've looked it up, and saw that sometimes font packs downloaded will keep it from working properly, so I deleted all of the new fonts that I had installed since I had a backup of them just in case that wasn't the problem. That didn't fix the problem. I've tried resetting the character, and photoshop itself. I've even tried repairing photoshop through the download, and I even uninstalled and reinstalled the program. Nothing is working.

I'm not exactly computer savvy, but I'd really like some help here. It was working fine until just today, and I can't figure out why it's stopped working. If anyone could help, I'd really appreciate it.
