Disapearing text!!!!

Recommended Posts

so i have been attempting to add a text box and have failed. i have never had a proble before.

i am running VW 12.5.

i click the text box tool and click on the screen. i type my desired text and then click the 2d selection tool and my text box disapears. i know im in the right layer/class. i just dont understand it. i tried opening a new document and the problem still occurs. i have even opened old documents that have text and i tried to add more and the same problem happens.

- if you have stack Layers on (if so turn it off).

- the pen colour (is it the same as the background).

- the default size for text (it might be very small).

It sure sounds like a class visibility problem. Set all your classes to visible and see if your text doesn't show up. Once we know what class the text is being put in, we will have an easier time figuring out why it is going there.
