Since yesterday the texttool stopped working. When I press T and click in an image, a square dot appears and a textlayer is created, but typing is not possible. I can create a textbox, but can not fill it with text.

The texttool works normal in Photoshop 2020.

Has anyone else encountered this?

Did you try that with a new file? The text tool works fine on my computer.

Yes I did. I will try it on a file with text that I made on another computer and see if I can edit the text.

Ok, this is interesting. The texttool started working again.

First I opened a new file and it didn't work. Only the square dot and the empty textlayer. Then I opened a psd with textlayers and was able to edit them. Then I opened a jpeg and after that a new, blanc file and both with the jpg and the new file the texttool worked again. No clue to what I did, but so far so good...

Thanks for this community!
