Text not showing up

Recommended Posts

I'm sure this is a newbie issue but I'm having an issue with the text feature. I have an image that I want to add text to. I created a new transparent layer, click on the text tool and start typing. I see the cursor moving but no visible text.  I do have a dark color selected on a white background so it's not that. Any help appreciated!

@richshow Welcome to the forum :)


This is just a shot in the dark, but when you click on the T for text, you then have to click back onto your layer and then begin typing. 


Hope this helps.
