I just upgraded to CS3 yesterday (I know a little late), and just ran into an issue I can't seem to figure out. I searched the forums (here and creative cow) and haven't found an answer yet. NOTE: I did see the thread where Harrington suggested the use of commit check mark - didn't work for me.
Placing text with text tool. Tool shows up, layer is created, type and cannot see my text. Have tried different fonts, sizes, color. Typing shows up in layer name, but not on canvas. If I select the layer, I get a warning - No pixels are more than 50% selected. The selection edges will not be visible. Huh?
Very frustrating and I'm sure it is a newbie feature that I've selected incorrectly. Any help would be appreciated. Will try to replicate issue on Mac side - just running CS3 update for leapord.
I figured this out. Thanks to the people on NAPP forums. Although I don't know what the heck I did to cause the issue, the fix was selecting the Reset Character option under the pull-down menu of the Character tab. Having fun learning my new CS3. :)
