trouble with text
Hi, I'm very new. I open text, select font, etc, click on canvas, text editor comes up, type in text but it doesn't go onto the canvas. I have played around with it for a while, started again from scratch, looked up tutorials. Love a hand with this, thanks

Open the layers dialog (Ctrl-L). Do you have a layer in it (normally at the top of the list) with a T icon, named with the text you typed?
