Fix the text tool
Sometimes, when trying to add a text with the new 'Essential CRAPhics' tool, it just doesn't work.
The red text box appears for half a second and just disappears. Typing results in whatever the keyboard shortcut for that letter does. It is not possible to edit an existing text or change its settings (size, position, font, etc) since the panel goes in nothing-selected-mode.
Rebooting doesn't help, nor resetting the preferences. You can only hope to be in a good day.
That is really weird!
Would you mind sharing a screen recording when you get into this state again?
If you could also share what OS and version you're on as well that would be helpful.
I'm emailing you now as well if its easier to send a screen recording from there instead.
Sorry the text tool is giving you headaches.
