I went through the other threads regarding text problems. Before it wasn't previewing but now the text is loading at the upper left hand corner no matter what I end up doing in the character panel.
Been at it for the past 2 hrs trying to figure out why it is behaving this way. I have not adjusted any settings since I used AE last. This has never happened before. Thanks if someone can assist.
Ok after 2hrs of troubleshooting and only after posting in the forum, the solution was to check off the 3D box in the layer. I figured that one out when I went to check my previous projects to see what was missing and it happened to be the 3d cursor in the text box.
Hopefully this may be a solution to others in the future who don't see their text typing in the text box.
