Photoshop CS5: Text cursor has disappeared


The weirdest thing is happening. My coworker noticed his blinking text cursor doesn't appear anymore, no matter where he selects/creates text. Even weirder? I'm editing his file now and I'm having the same problem. A bit of googling seems to show that I should trash my settings file but I'm afraid i'll lose all my custom settings.

Has anybody experienced this before? Thanks.

I had this happen recently and I discovered that the image in question somehow had its resolution set to 1 pixel/inch (under Image > Image Size > Resolution field).

Once I changed the resolution to something higher, I could again see my text cursor.

What was happening was that I was selecting my text tool and clicking in the image to try and insert text and all I could see was a small dot where the text layer should have been. A new text layer was appearing in the layers menu but the text was not visible in the image itself (no visible cursor, no visible text).
