I have been using CS6 with Yosemite OSX 10.9.5 for over a year with no problems. Now suddenly my text will not appear on screen. I am merely trying to ape some text and work in 2D space, nothing tricky. I fear I bumped a key or button somewhere.
I can open other projects and the text is visible. I cannot for the life of me figure out what I have done wrong nor what has gone wrong.
Double-click on the text layer to highlight the text; no, you can't see it yet, but hold on.
Go to the Character pane. You can see the settings for that text layer. Examine the settings closely. Off-the-wall character settings are the most common cause of text invisibility.
Use the drop-down menu in the character panel to reset everything.
