After the most recent update I am again unable to edit the text content in existing text boxes in my current XD projects. I am currently on Adobe XD v.26.0.22.5 and Creative Cloud v.5.0.0.354 on OS X 10.14.6. I had this problem last year as well but it eventually went away with an update. Now it has reappeared and I cannot edit my current projects. Additionally I can't even add new text boxes either. I am able to resize and move the text boxes around but cannot modify the content. Anyone else have this issue? I've restarted both XD as well as CC, but that didn't seem to work. Please help!

I have the same probelm on different versions. XD text seems to get caught between typing in the text box and one of the text box properties. ie text size.

My quick solution is to type in another program. ie text file, folder rename, etc and then when you click back onto XD the type tool works correctly.   not an elegant solution but it works.

Your solution does not seem to work for me 😞 I think something different is happening in my situation. I can select existing text boxes so that the dotted line outline shows, but am unable to actually click inside to select any text or type.

I'm in the same boat as Rantao here with this new text box issue.

I've also had the issue AndrewB had in the past and have solutioned it the same.

But this new text box issue is different and can't be solutioned the same currently.

I just updated to newest version of XD, 27.0.12.6 and it looks like this bug has been addressed as I'm able to edit my text fields again.

This worked for me, you're a life saver! The problem kept cropping back up even after restarting the application, sometimes after a while and sometimes immediately. Just switching to another window to type and switching back fixed it though. Really hope the XD team gets around to figuring out what is causing it though, this has caused me a lot of lost time in the past.

I solved this problem by clicking on the text box and using Alt + Tab, when I return to the program the behavior is normal
