    AE CC 2017 Can't edit or highlight Text Layer

    Josh Sapir Level 1

      This problem used to crop up from time to time in every version of AE CC and I could never figure out what caused it.  I had the issue with CC 15.3, so I tried updating to 2017 to see if it solved the problem.  No dice. 

       

      Basically, I can't highlight or change any of my text layers.  I can't even create a new text layer.  I can select the layer in the timeline or in the comp window, but when I double-click the layer, it highlights for a split second and then the bounding box re-appears.  I'm not sure if I've inadvertently set something to cause this or what.
