How are you trying to insert text? Simple copy and paste? Pasting into the text tool? Click and drag from another application?

What kind of text are you trying to insert? Font? Source?

Resolved my photoshop crashing problem. I went into the HD and then into the Library folder and opened the fonts folder which had many files and a folder I inserted from my old mac which visually looked different so I figured they were not compatible. Once I deleted them it resolved the problem. Thank you for your assistance in trying to help me locate the problem.

OK, so you had a corrupt font file.

Which version of Photoshop are you using? Have you installed all the updates?

What OS version?
