Sometimes I can't add text in a text layer.

Sep 9, 2013 2:59 PM

I have PSE9 and sometimes, when attempting to add text to a text layer, I'm unable to do so.  I click the text tool, but the move tool icon displays on the screen even though the text parameters show at the top of the screen.  Any idea what's going on?

    On the text tool's option bar, top left, click on the little arrow, then reset all tools. If that does not fix it, suggest that you reset preferences.

    Step 1. Hold down the Alt + Ctrl + Shift keys as you click on the icon to open Elements. When asked if you want to delete the settings file, say yes.

    Step 2. Reset the preferences as above.

    Step 3. Close Elements and let the file regenerate.
