    Unable to add/modify text in Fireworks CS4


      I have downloaded the latest patch and I cannot get to or create any text.  I haved tried new documents and Lynda.com exercise files and nothing.  I can make the blue box with my cursor but it has no handles and pressing any keys just moves my selection around in the Firewroks toolbar.

          Locate and delete the file named Fireworks CS4 Preferences.txt. It will rebuild itself the next time you load FW, resetting all the defaults. The file is located at:


          Windows XP: [C:]\Documents and Settings\[user]\Application Data\Adobe\Fireworks CS4\[application language folder, such as "English"]\



          Windows Vista or 7: [C:]\Users\[User Name]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Fireworks  CS4\[application language  folder, such as "English"]\



          Mac OS: [User Name]\Library\Preferences\Adobe Fireworks CS4\[application  language folder, such as "en"]\
