I am trying to use the Type tool to paste Lorem Ipsum in a paragraph using Photoshop CC. When I try to select it the Lorem Ipsum doesn't seem to be active. I updated to the most recent version of CC that I use. I also looked in the preferences and don't see anyway to activate it there. What am I doing room.

Are you using the text tool?
Do you have a text box active?

And are you using the old CC, or the current CC 2014?

I got it figured out. I was using the marque tool to make a box. I did not realize the text tool would actually make a text box. I have just used it to write text. Thanks for pointing that out.

With text, you can also just click once instead of drawing a rectangle.  That creates point text, which functions in a very similar way, but you must supply the ends of line yourself.

I just updated to the recent version from the CC panel. I placed a rectangle opened the paragraph panel. When I go to the text tool the lorem ipsum doesnt seem to be active.
