To change the Type tool’s default settings, close all open documents and make your changes in the Options bar. These settings will now be your new defaults.

If you often set type in Photoshop, you can also use Tool Presets to save and reuse certain combinations of fonts, sizes, colors etc. To save a Tool preset, customize the Type options, then save them as a tool preset either from the Tool Presets panel of the Tool Presets drop down in the Options bar.

Of course if you are using Photoshop CS6, you also have the ability to save Character and Paragraph styles. Watch the video below for more information on the new Type features in Photoshop CS6.

    How do I reset the character and paragraph settings back to default? They are staying as I set them and I no longer need those parameters.

      Use the flyout on the panels and choose Load Default Type Styles.
