Are you on Mac or Win? And what tool do you have selected? If you're using the select tool, you can double click into the text box to select the test. If you're using the Text (T) tool, you should be able to just click into the existing text box. If you click too far out, it will create another text box for you.
I am on a Mac (laptop) and use an external mouse.
I select the text with the text tool. But unless I am very careful and only
after several attempts do I manage to not create a new text box but rather
the existing text.
I am selecting the text right in the middle of the text box. Certainly not
too far out.

Thanks for that info, Alexandra. If your mouse is particularly sensitive, could you possibly be dragging slightly to create a tiny text box instead of purely clicking on the text?
