Text element is only a line

There is a little problem with the font tool. When creating it has 0 element hight, but font has the normal size. The text element also no longer reacts to alignment aids such as the ColumnGrid. When I hit the two Ancors on the line I can change the angel, not more. Help?

You can type something on the textbox and then Esc on your keyboard. Then, click on this (the option outlined with red)
image.
There are other options as well such as clicking on the insert text tool and then dragging to create a bigger text box. Another option is to change the width of the textbox.

Thank you, it helped. That I have overseen.
