    Please help with text problem

    Text 1

      I am new to photoshop.  While going through one of the basic video tutorials, I came to the section where is says to add text.  I followed instructions, but can't see what I type.  My cursor looks different than the one in the video when I click into the layer with the text tool too.  I have a small square dot.  The video shows a normal text cursor, as you'd find in Illustrator.

       

      If I type something and click enter, it replaces the name of the layer, but is still not visible in the image.  The layer displays as a text layer.  What am I doing wrong?  Thanks.
