Installed CC a few days ago and appeared to work fine. Presents and Plugins up and running. Did the update that showed up already too. Tried to use the type tool for a customer project last night and it won't work. I just get a square black dot and no text appears, nor a text box. Use a MacBook Pro 17" with Mountain Lion.
What have you tried? How is Type soecified in Preferences > Units & Rulers, and what is the image size in Pixels and resolution? For instance, you might have a linear size for type, and a very low image resolution like 72dpi, which would make type smaller than you'd expect, so all you'd see was the black dot. Just a guess, but try changing dpi to something much larger like 600 (without resampling) and try the same type size again.
I figured out my issue and now just read this. You would have saved me a little time if I would have read this first . I wanted to crop the photo I was using and put in 851x315 pixels (or so I thought) when in reality it was in inches as I typed faster than my brain was seeing. I was wondering why I could do type from a new document. So I brought the text from another image into the image I needed and then I was able to see that the text was very small on the image, hence figuring out what happened. So this is not a CC issue, this is a Jeff Remas issue of stupidity. Thanks again!
