I am trying to fit a text box to the text inside the box, but the cursor and height of the selection of the text is too tall. Whenever I try to fit the text box, the text disappears.

This font is called Replica (Light).

I found this help page on the Adobe community where the culprit was the baseline shift - which is not the issue in my situation.

The Type is set to superscript. Select the type and toggle that setting.

    @MicroMachine It looks like you've got the Area Type box set to Justify Vertically. Those options aren't available in my preferred AI version. So I don't really know where they are located. Maybe the menu.... Type > Area Tye Options

    @JeffK That would cause the type to overlap itself on 2 lines... which could absolutely be an issue. But it's not the issue here.
