Text tool not working in PhotoShop

by marla9 / June 5, 2013 2:06 AM PDT

I am using PhotoShop Elements 11 on a desktop with Windows 7. The text tool shows the cursor, but nothing that I type. I read that deleting preferences could solve this problem, but it didn't work for me.
Any other suggestions?

I mention this in case someone else runs into the same situation. It wasn't mentioned in the link, but thanks for that. I was not aware that my black/white color selection switched to white. Of course I couldn't see white text on a white background!
