In Affinity Designer my regular text box is working just fine, but when I try to drag out an Artistic Text box, a few things go wonky.

I'm sure I've got a few settings messed up somewhere, but I can not figure out what or where. Please help.

Video attached. Explanation below.

So, when I try to drag out the Artistic Text box it will really only grow vertically. It seems like the horizontal is locked. Then, when I start typing, it's automatically in all caps and when I change it to normal case all of the lower case letters get sent to the front of the box past the capital letter at the beginning (see video).

I am very confused. Sorry if my explanation is not very detailed. Please Help!

Update: Restarting the program does not help; however, using the Artistic Text tool in a different document acts normal as it should. So there is something wrong in my document. Any ideas?

Yes, it looks like you've got some settings messed up in that document. With some Artistic Text selected, try Edit > Defaults > Revert or Edit > Defaults > Factory Reset.
