    problem with text tool


      I am having a problem with the text tool. When I type text, I then highlight it to change color, font size, or design. Once I have completed those changes, I then click the move tool. Once I click that, the text disappears and the layer is empty. So essentially, I cannot edit text, and when I try to it gets deleted. I have already tried resetting the tool, and this did not fix the problem.

          Change text need to be committed before you move it. If you accidentally hit the enter key with the text highlighted you can easily end up with and empty text layer,  Did you click the check mark in the option bar to commit the text change?

            Noter after hitting the check mark in edit mode the layer and font is okay.

                Don't you think that the commercial sig was auto generated by e-mail reply?

                  Does that make not a violation?
