Every png file I have suddenly has text that cannot be edited

Hi everyone, every PNG file has suddenly lost the ability to edit text, I can highlight the text box, but to actually select box (or any item) I have to click and then drag it. I can select the the box and change font, size etc from the properties bar but i cannot select it so I can change the actual copy and wording, usually i would just double click on the text and it highlights it.


I made a new text box where I can write text, but when iI click off the text, I can not click back on to change the wording


This in CS6 which I recently downloaded, I tried opening the files in an old Fireworks and it has the same problem


It is every single png file I have from the last few years


I am using a Macbook


The only thing I thought It could be is I changed the settings for PNG files in that instead of opening in Preview they open in Fireworks, since then this has happened


Thanks in advance

    Text selection issues have been seen when you are running third-party applications like SoundCloud / Spotify / Grooveshark Desktop Helper or Radium. If you are running any of them, please close them and relaunch Fireworks. This might resolve the issue.
