I am pulling my hair out over this one. Photoshop works fine until i need to make letters or words in a psd. then I get a black screen with the navigation window showing. I've restarted the program a few times, then uninstalled and reinstalled the program, and now I'm at my wits' end in trying to get this photoshop program to work.
When you ask a question you need to provide some basic information
-Forum quick start https://forums.adobe.com/docs/DOC-5601
Mac or Windows, and EXACTLY which version of the operating system?
Recent Mac AND Windows operating systems have been known to cause "odd" problems
Are you using a computer Administrator account with full read/write permission?
Exactly which version of the program do you have that is causing problems?
Also, graphic adapter brand (NVidia, amd, ???) and model, and driver version
I'm running windows, and photoshop cs4 on my personal home computer.
Windows XP or Windows 2000 or Windows 7 or Windows 8 or Windows 10 and which "patch" level?
NVidia or AMD card, and which driver version?
