Hi, Can you include the exact version of your softwre, operating system and a screenshot? If you turn on the 'Type>Show Hidden Characters' to see all the invisible characters, you might have a clue in case you have a return that pushes the text to the next frame, or in the paragraph style, check if your settings force your paragraph to stay together (Keep Options)

Hi yeshayac, are you able to select some characters in that text frames even if you can see nothing when you preview the page? Could be that your text frame is set to non-printing and you watch the page with Overprint Preview enabled. Other reasons: The text is filled with color [None] or color [Paper] . The text frame is overset. There could be various reasons for that. Regards, Uwe Laubender ( ACP )

Hi,

Further to my problem, I deleted it out of Dreamweaver then re-imported and now the text has disappeared from my files when I open it on a browser too! Within Dreamweaver it is there in the code view. Thank you.

Thank you so much, the text was filled with colour. I set it to 'none' and that fixed it. This has solved my problem!
