I started a project I added a text box and I can edit the text. I added a second text box and I cannot edit the text. I can change font size and color but a cursor will not appear in the box allowing me to type text.

Hi @Georjanne31508869fn0u - Please see below for steps to edit text. These steps were pulled from the Updates for the new Adobe Express as of Sept 8th announcement.

 

Inline Text Editing 

 

Adobe Express supports inline text editing within the design canvas. To edit text, you must first enter text editing mode using one of several methods. Below are two common ways to enter text editing mode.

 

1. For a text object that is neither grouped nor overlaid with others:

  • Double-click the text or
  • Single-click the text twice

2. For text objects that are grouped or overlaid with other objects:

  • Select the text object from the Layers panel
  • Press Enter on the keyboard

Neither of these 'solutions' work. The edit text box never appears any more no matter what I do.

Hi 

@Jay36286972mvww

,

 

We're sorry to hear about this. Could you please let us know the process of how you're doing it? Since when have you been seeing this issue? Have you tried using the other suggested browsers (Safari, Microsoft Edge, and Google Chrome) to see if it makes a difference?

 

Try clearing the browser's cache and cookies to check if that helps and then give it a try.

 

Regards,

Tarun
