Text tool not working in Elements 10. I open the pic, click on T and then it wants me to draw a box, which I do. Nothing I type is shown on the pic, yet when I click on accept, whatever I have typed becomes this layer's label! What am I doing wrong?

What size font are you using? It might be larger than the text box you've drawn. Another issue could be the text color. Try changing to Red, Times New Roman, 8pt and see what happens.

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):
