Hi there. This is just a quick question that hopefully I can get a quick answer for. I have Adobe Photoshop CS6, and recently, this issue that has happened in the past has come back once again. Whenever I attempt to use the Text Tool, this error, "Could not complete your request because something prevented the text engine from being initialized" pops up. In the past, I did this fix in which resulted in me going into my %appdata% and removing certain text files, shown on this Adobe help page: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/text-engine-error-using-type.html

Once I did that, the issue was fixed, but after a while, maybe 8-12 months, it is back, however, this time those files are no longer to be seen, and I have no other choices. There are other older videos that show to delete this certain folder in %appdata% known as "TypeSupport," but I believe that was with the older versions of Photoshop, or they just have a different way of removing those files today, such as the fix that I used in the past. Other than that, there are no other ways to fix this, other than reinstalling Photoshop, which I have done about 2-3 times now.

If anyone here can help me, that'd be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Thank you very much! It was actually already on Middle Eastern, but I swapped the Text Engine to East Asian, then back to Middle Eastern, and it works properly now. Cheers to you my friend.
