Problem with text box

Hi there! 

When I enter text in Photoshop Elements 2019 along the bottom of an image, a box with ok/cancel is placed in the middle of the line, annoying, how do I get rid of it?

The old workaround starts with realizing that you are not writing on the canvas. You are writing on a text layer above the canvas. The trick is to write your text just a bit higher than the bottom border, and then, move the text layer down to where you want it.

Thank you for the answers!
I insert a white field under the image and write there with black text, if I first write in the image and move the text down, I usually have to change the color of the text.
If I do what Glenn suggests, the check/no choice comes up if I want to edit again.
Best to avoid the unnecessary check/no choice forever.

Side note:

The misunderstanding from many users is really that they think they are writing directly on the canvas. When I explain that writing text is writing on a 'layer', that looks somewhat an abstraction. In French, we say a 'calque', which means a transparent sheet, a tracing paper.  This is easier to imagine where you write and how to move the text by moving the 'calque'.

I often ignore the confirmation check. I just slap the text anywhere, generally in the middle and move it after I get it how I want it.
