Well, it doesn't always happen to me. If I restarted Photoshop then many times the problem went away.

Manipal, are you referring to what's displayed as a 'Sample' preview of text in the font selection menu?



Or are you referring to not being able to see text when you actually type on the canvas?

Is it possible that you were typing with White text on a White background? (Don't laugh, I've seen people get confused by it)

>no previews of the text I am about to type

I hope you mean "can't see the text I just typed".
Seeing a preview of text before you type it would be a really neat trick....

Have you installed all the Photoshop updates?
If you are on Macintosh, have you installed the OS updates? Have you deleted the OS font caches? (MacOS has a lot of font bugs, Apple is still working on fixes for some of them)

No sir ,I am not that stupid though :P
Now when I opened the fonts seemed right.
I know I would sound freakish but they seem to know that i complained :P
