Does anyone know what i need to do to fix it?
I have tried numerous fonts and I have shut down the program and restarted it.

I appreciate any help you can give me.

Text on Path (non-warped) in PS CS3?

The advantage of running this community is that when I forget how to do or don't have time to do lots of research on something Photoshoppy at work, I know where to go. ;)

I'm used to using Photoshop 7 at home, but I have version CS3 at work. I need to put text on a path (specifically, curved over a globe-like central image). I know about the "warp text" button but I don't want my letters reshaped; I just want them to go around. All I can remember is something vague about the pen tool that I didn't pay any attention to three years ago when it was The Trendy Thing in icons. Anyone care to re-enlighten me now? :)

Making an image pack photoshop ready?

I've had several people ask me this but I don't know the answer.

How do you convert an image pack (say lyric brushes for PSP9) to a file that is usable by Photoshop?

If I'm not mistaken, Photoshop users require .abr files and since I use Paint Shop, I don't know how to convert them (if it's even possible). A lot of people who have asked me are newbies to Photoshop so they have no idea how to do it.

Thank you for your help.

EDIT: Solved. Thank you!
