    What setting is stopping me from entering text on a layer?


      I've been adding text to layers for a few months with no problem.  Now every time I use the text tool all I get is a 'dot' with a line that extends as I type.  It does create a layer and the layer is named by whatever I typed but there isn't anything there.  I've tried the 'find' and it didn't find anything.  I've gotten the outline to show, but it's empty.  I also found a similar question and the response was that the font size might be too small to see.  I have a 25 inch background and set the font to 72 but still nothing.   Since I haven't had this problem until now it seems like something is just set wrong -- but what?
