v 5.0, Win11: Text not showing when I type

Go to solution Solved by BoltBait,

Recommended Posts

Hi! Annie here from Big Mama Printables


I am in the middle of creating printables 12x15 and 11x14 300dpi, multiple layers.

  • Opened a new layer
  • Text set to Black, suddenly stops showing as I type
  • Occurs randomly
  • Only occurs on multi-layer projects: I can open a new blank on the board and it will type just fine.
  • Has been been happening for a while now.


Please advise.😟🥺

You might have some little tiny selection somewhere.  Try pressing Ctrl-D to deselect before using the text tool.


Also, make sure the layer you're typing on (selected layer) has it's visibility check box checked.

Hi there, Bolt!


Thank you for getting back to me.

1. Yep, layer is selected.

2. Ctrl+D........ PERFECT!  That trick is now tattooed on 30 gray cells, left column.


Happy happy🤗.  And btw, your 5.0 plug-in pack is awesome.  Love it and am rewarding a little bit at a time.  Doing what I do would be a hell of a lot harder without it.  SO glad you're there.
