So, I open a new document, choose the Text Tool, it hiighlights the tool in the left tool palette. The I place the Text Tool icon on the page and start to type. The highlighted box back in the tool panel wildly jumps from tool to tool. This is the ed version, part of the CS# Master Suite, I just it just a few times, it worked fine for a business card just six months ago. The other programs in the suite work find. I have followed the procedure to clear out any preference files. What gives???? I tried downloading updates, it won't let me do that. Has Adobe installed Hal onmy machine?
Before you can enter text you need a text frame. With the text tool, click and drag a frame the shize you want, then the toool will allow you to type inside the frame.
