Text Tool does not function properly

When I select “text tool” and then click in the canvas I get a tiny blinking dot. No cursor. If I type it does not show up except in the layers panel. I have tried all of the suggestions I can find. Help please.

Hi @Lorri_Halliday can you share a video showing the issue you are seeing?

Yes. Thank you for responding

Increase the font size.

Thank you for your suggestion.
However that solution does not solve the issue.

Could you show the properties panel when the text layer is selected and when the frame is selected?

Ok I did do that and the text size is there thank you… but now everything I bring in is Huge.
What am I doing wrong?

I have been following this guy and his canvas is not set to 100 and he
has all that text there

Thanks I’ll figure this out
