I am working with FireWorks CS4 Text does not appear in text box while entering text. The text box expands as I enter text but nothing appears. The text appears in the Layers box but not in the document. What might be happening?"
Make sure the color you have selected for the text isn't the same as your background color. You might also try downloading and installing the CS4 updater, which, I believe, includes a fix for text bounding box oddities.
