Could you take a screenshot with the text selected and layers panel and appearance panel in the image so we can see more information, and post it here? Thanks!

Hello elsid27030226,

 

Sorry to hear about this experience. As suggested by Laura,  the Layers might need reordering or the Opacity altered for the text to be visible.

I hope these suggestions shared by her helped resolve the problem. If not, kindly check if Illustrator behaves this way with other files. If it does, kindly try resetting Illustrator's preferences by following the steps shared in this article (https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/kb/troubleshoot-preference-issues.html) and sharing your observations.

Disclaimer: Please note that resetting preferences will remove all custom settings, and Illustrator will launch with the defaults. You may take a backup of these settings from the location mentioned in the article. 

Looking forward to hearing from you.

 

Thanks,
Anubhav
