I use Elements 10 - have been adding text to my pictures since purchase. Today I can't see the text I am trying to add. I have made no adjustments to my program or system. Any help would be great please and thank you.

Hi Erin,

Are any of your settings different than below:



If so, try resetting the tool by clicking the pop-up and selecting "Reset Tool" and see if that fixes the problem:



If resetting the tool doesn't work check the settings in Image>Resize>Image Size... (Elements) or Image>Image Size... (Photoshop CS5) dialog.

You probably have the resolution set really low or really high (in the example below it's set really low [ 1 ] which would exhibit this behavior):



If you set the resolution to something reasonable like 72 or 240, this behavior should work more like you expect.
