Text Changes Boldness or Shadow or Something?

Recommended Posts

Hi! I'm looking for some help with this issue that has happened a few times now. I think I am hitting a keyboard command. It usually happens when I am working on a different page and don't notice the issue until later. 


I have checked for consistency between the correct and incorrect formatted text and cannot find any differences in the Text Frame window, except that the font color is listed as none. I have also check for shadow features in Layer Effects.


Thank you!

(I thought it happened when I typed a capital S.)

It may have been the X key which is next to the S key

Shift+X will swap stoke and fill - adding a "default" stroke colour/width if there was not one to start with

Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be worried about.
