Photoshop CC 2017: Type Tool doesn't work

  • Updated 2 years ago
When I try to type a text, it can be seen neither while it is writting nor after, regardless of the size, pixels and color of the font, position of the text layer or background color (I tried to write changed all these parameters).

I use the program on a Macbook Air and this problem was presented 3 days ago.

In the Character and Paragraph panel there is menu in top right corner. Try to use "reset paragraph/character" in both panels.

Howdy Steffano,

Jaroslav's answer is right on the money.  It's possible that you've changed a setting in either the Character or Paragraph panel that's causing the text to not display within the text's bounding box.  Some common examples would be the Font Size is just way larger than the area or the First Line Indent or Space after Paragraph just pushes the text out of the visible area.  Resetting the panels should snap all these values back to the defaults of 0.

Hope that helps.  If you continue to have problems, please let me know.
