I'm designing a logo and I'm almost finished but I'm trying to add text to the logo to finish it off but the text won't appear. No matter what color I make the text it just doesn't appear. Anyone know why this could be? I'm using Photoshop CS5.1 extended by the way.

Here are a few thoughts. Are you sure you have chosen the text-tool, and with a font-size that is actually big enough to see?


You are using the text-tool on a layer where text is "not allowed".


the layer you are putting text in, is behind something else. Go an look in your layers-panel and see if the sorting of layers are wrong.

The order of the layers was wrong. Thanks. – Ollie Acyll Feb 23 '14 at 23:02
