When I try to use the text tool, nothing happens.

The focus goes away right after I clicked on the program window.

I can't even edit text that already exists.

 

MacOS 10.14.6

Premiere 14.0.0 (build 572)

Thanks for a very helpful answer, Adobe. As always, it's our job to fix your mistakes...

Here's a workaround if you're stuck like me: create a new project and import your old project in it.

My solution: Copy the text-box, paste in another location. The tool works in the copy. Delete the original box, and move the copy to the original location.

I'm having the same issue; the text box isn't working... works once and then not again.

I had a similar bug a few versions ago, and the "solution" was to resize the monitor panel just a little bit
