Text doesn't appear
I'm working on a simple project consisting of several colored horizontal bars with text in them. At least, that's the plan. I typed text in the first bar, then created a new layer, changed the font size, and started typing text in the second bar. The text appeared in the text dialogue box, but nothing appeared in the bar. I can bring up a new project and successfully enter text. Any ideas?

RE: Text doesn't appear
The text layer is created above the currently selected layer, so if you are not selecting the top layer it may be hidden by the layer on top (but you should see the text layer rectangle grow as it accepts new text) and the dotted line of the text layer boundaries. See your Layers list (Ctr-L).
