          Click on the little arrow on the tool's option bar, top left, and reset the tool.

           

          Be sure that you are using a font color which contrasts with the background.

           

          It is possible that you may have to increase the pt size. You are not limited to the preset sizes in the drop-down. Type in a larger size --try 110 or 130.

            Good day to you Hatstead.  The problem was the pt size - 18 is no more thn a pin-***** on the photo. My first time trying to use the text layer.

            Many thanks.  Have a great year.

              You're welcome. You may have to adjust for use subsequently, since required size is related to the resolution of the picture file that you are working on.

               

              Happy New Year!
