Adobe Photoshop CS3: When type text, it becomes marquee after commit current edits

Your problem is just the editing mode. Maybe you have accidentally pressed the “Q” key before the text key was activated or selected. Haven’t you noticed that the background of your image or the entire PhotoShop project background becomes red when click on the work area and start typing a character?

This means that you are editing in the quick mask mode. If your in the quick mask mode, it means that your are making mask for your project image. That’s the reason why when you have committed the edit the text becomes marquee and that’s for making the mask on the image. You can use this as the selection of your desired area to be masked.

So how could you go back to the normal mode of your Photoshop editing mode?

Here’s how. On the Tools window or bar, you will see a box with a circle inside the box on the bottom of the window, just click it to toggle mode from Quick mask mode and Standard mode or just press the “Q” key to a change mode.

You must be set to Standard mode to solve your problem.
